Deputy Vice Chair

There are currently four (4) operational divisions of the LPO Executive Committee, which has the power to add divisions where they make sense. The Directors and Deputy Directors coordinate the day to day operations of their respective divisions and work synergistically with other directors to advance common objectives. While often members of the Executive and Central Committee, Directors don’t have to and in fact, don’t even need to be recognized members of the party.  One or more Deputy Directors are encouraged for all the divisions. Directors and Deputies are non-voting members of the Executive Committee. While they are expected to attend Executive Committee meetings, such attendance can be virtual.

Directors are tasked to delegate, to our committed volunteers, the tasks and roles of the division and Party based on a well communicated and understood appreciation for the amount of time and resources any volunteer has to offer the cause. The more resources we have at every level makes us a stronger organization.

Political Division

The Political Division is focused on recruiting statewide candidates and acting as a legislative watchdog. Ultimately, the Political Division supports local candidates as best as they can where no county party or organization exists. They will also support the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominees. Lobbying, writing and reviewing legislation and issues. Fighting for fair elections and ballot access are a major focus and priority considering the current political corruption in Ohio.
