From the Desk of the Executive Director
THANKFUL FOR YOU!
As we go to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones, I am taking the moment to express deep gratitude for all you do to advocate for freedom in Nebraska.
Thank you for your dedicated volunteer hours. Thank you to brave people who have stepped up to run for office and make a difference in our communities. Thank you to everyone who has donated even just a dollar every now and then. Thank you for wearing your Libertarian swag and getting the freedom message out. We appreciate everything you do to stand up for our freedom! Your contribution matters.
As we are in the middle of the Season of Giving and are preparing for the Annual State Convention in April, I want to reintroduce our monthly giving program: The Booster Pack!
Each monthly donation level receives a digital membership card and corresponds to unique swag gifts and priority access and seating at the State Convention. The gifts compound, so for instance, if you’re a Liberty Gold member you will have VIP access at the convention and receive the t-shirt, Nebraska sticker, and Booster Pack sticker!
Check out the benefits:
Become a Booster Pack Member today to help defend every Nebraskan’s freedom!
Thank you all for a fantastic 2021, I know with your passion for freedom that 2022 will be even better! I wish you a wonderful holiday and prosperous New Year.
Yours in Liberty,
Schuyler Windham, Executive Director

District 1 Coordinator Update
by Amy Wimer
Lancaster has been gathering signatures to put medical cannabis options on the ballot, and will be holding officer elections at their next meeting on January 5th.
Seward had a postcard writing project to inform all registered libertarians in the county about their upcoming events.
D1 has lost a few counties due to redistricting, and we’ll have more information about how to move forward. As always, if you’d like to get more involved please let the D1 coordinator know DC1@lpne.org
District 2 Coordinator Update
by Gene Siadek
The newly appointed Douglas County Election Commissioner was required by state law to select an assistant commissioner from an opposing political party. Proper notification was sent to Douglas County LP Chair, Patrick McNally, who recruited five highly qualified Libertarian candidates for the assistant commissioner position and submitted their names to the Election Commissioner. All five were interviewed for this position.
The Republican commissioner selected a Democrat for the position. I commend the LP Chair and the five candidates for their efforts in this matter. This is the first time the Libertarian Party submitted names for this appointment. The LP party continues to grow and mature as a political party and increasing the level of competition against the established parties.
