I just resigned as the organizer of the Tom Green County Libertarian Party Meetup, and I will no longer hold an office in the Libertarian party. I have been with the Libertarian Party here locally for about 16 years, and off and on county chair and organizer of all the meetings for around 5 years. I give up.
I don't know how to get the local libertarians organized. I have spent money I don't have and spent wasted hours trying to get people involved and doing things. I had some hope after Robert Butler was here twice, and we had reasonable turn outs and it look like maybe something would happen, and it probably could have. I tried to find someone to take over as county chair as I needed a break, but that really didn't work out. There are a few people that show up and complain about the political situation, but no progress has been made under my watch. I must take responsibility for the current state of the local party and therefore I am resigning from all positions. Someone else will have to take up the challenge.
There are some good people among the local libertarians. Hopefully one of them will step up and do what I couldn't
Goodbye and goodluck.
p.s. I will leave this blog up for a month. If no one contacts me to take it over, I will take it down.
