Meet The Candidates

This page is for candidates that are interested in sharing their information with  the
Libertarian Party of Hillsborough County Members and Supporters.

The Libertarian Party of Hillsborough County sets aside a portion of each monthly meeting to educate our members on current Hillsborough County/FL state issues, learning more about the Libertarian platform, or getting to meet our local candidates.

# This specific portion of our meeting provides you, the candidate, an opportunity to speak for ten minutes on the microphone including Q & A directly to our members, supporters and guest .  The approximate time slot is 7:50 - 8:00 pm on the second Wednesday of the month. 

# If you provide us with your website we can share it on the screen while you are presenting if you like.   See the example with Joe Redner at the bottom of this page.

# You will also have a high top table with a black plastic table cloth reserved for you to place any of your business cards, books, bumper stickers, pins, information cards, yard signs, etc on.  You are also permitted to place one sign at the front of the room during the evening that you present.  After the meeting you are welcome to leave a few items with our "Campaign Committee" volunteers to be displayed at future events.  You are welcome to accent or decorate this table further if you desire.  

# You are welcome to bring friends and members of your support staff to support your table or take photographs and help answer questions about you or your campaign. 

# You are always welcome to promote our events to your followers.  When they arrive they can sign in as a guest if they are not an Active LPHC Member.   Please be advised that we are a grass roots political organization and as such we rely heavily on donations and so they will be exposed to a suggested $5 donation both when they check in and at the opening/closing statements during the meeting.  All funds collected directly support the Libertarian Party of Hillsborough County and it's mission to defend and advance the causes of individual liberty, minimum government, and states' rights by engaging in political action affecting the residents of Hillsborough County.

The LPHC does live stream many of our meetings and events to our followers as Hillsborough is such a large county.  Often  portions of these videos are shared on our YouTube Channel, Bambuser Channel,  Facebook Page and possibly other locations as well.   Please note that when you and a member of the LPHC Executive Committee commit to placing your presentation time on the schedule you are also consenting to be photographed and video taped for these purposes.   

Although we do not guarantee the quality or even the availability of the video, if they are acceptable quality you are welcome to use and share this video for your own purposes provided you give credit to the Libertarian Party of Hillsborough County and do not remove our identifying logo(s) or contact information.
