Nominate Virginia Libertarian of the Year

Event: Call for Nominees - LPVA Volunteer Recognition

Description: At its January meeting in 2004, the State Central Committee,
the governing body of the LPVA, unanimously adopted a resolution declaring
the third Monday of February to be "Libertarian Leadership Day".  The
state committee chooses one outstanding Libertarian activist, declared to
be our "Libertarian Leader", as part of its celebration of Libertarian
Leadership Day.

In 2014, we decided to establish two recognitions:

1) Libertarian Leader Lifetime Service Award - For those rare activists
who have steadily volunteered for LPVA over a period of many years.

2) Libertarian Leader of the Year - Recognizing those who have made
extensive contributions to the LPVA in any given year.

The State Central Committee typically selects the nominee at the first
meeting of each year.

All members of the Libertarian Party who reside in Virginia are invited to
suggest nominees for each recognition.  The nominee must be a Virginia
resident, and must be an LP member.  If you would like to nominate an
outstanding activist for either title, please email the  Secretary via  or
send a letter (to M Montoni, PO Box 864, Dayton VA  22821-0864), and ask
to have the person's name added to the Agenda.

Please include a brief, one or two-paragraph "activist resume" for your
nominee, and perhaps a statement telling us why you think the person
deserves to be officially recognized.

Your nominations will be provided to all state committee members and will
be included on the March meeting agenda.

The inaugural "Libertarian Leader" was Ron Crickenberger, who at the time
in 2004 was suffering from terminal cancer.

The following individuals have been formally recognized as "Libertarian
Leaders" by the state committee in past years:

2004: Ron Crickenberger
2005: Bill Redpath
2006: Marc Montoni
2007: Jim Lark
2008: (no selection made)
2009: (no selection made)
2010: Dave Overstreet
2011: Matt Cholko
2012: R. Douglas Wright
2013: Anne Panella & Justin Malkin

The State Committee recognized the following in 2014:

2014 Libertarian Leader Lifetime Service Award - Stew Engel
2014 Libertarian Leader of the Year - Robert and Astrid Sarvis

"Public services" in DC

You probably think of DC as a place where ambulances don't always pick people up who are dying, subways catch on fire, and everyone who can exits the government schools for charter schools, independent schools or home schooling.  But that basically services work.  Here are reports from this weekend's neighborhood list postings:



Thank you for communicating with the residents. It has now been 24 hours since DC Water turned off our water. This is completely unacceptable. I just spoke with Gloria on the customer service line and she informed me that as of 9:11AM no crew had yet been sent to recharge the water main. She said they expected to have a crew out within 2 hours. They said the same thing when we called at 8AM. The complete lack of information surrounding this incident is extremely frustrating. 

V on Taylor Street


Please ensure that the snow plows do not skip the 5000 block of Fulton and the 5000 block of Eskridge for this snowstorm. The plows come up Dana and up University, but do not plow the short distances to the cul de sacs of Fulton and Eskridge where these streets intersect with Dana and University. And the plows never come back to our blocks after plowing the more heavily travelled streets, like Dana and University. We are DC residents who pay taxes and need plowing to get up and down the hills to our houses. Thank you for your help.
