Management Team

The LPO is managed by five divisions: Political, Field Development, Communications, Information Technology, and Finance.  Each division focuses on their own area of expertise, while providing support to other divisions and the Executive and Central committees.

Political Division

This team is focused on recruiting and electing statewide candidates, but will support local candidates where no county party or organization exists. They will also support the Libertarian Party's presidential nominees. Ballot access for the LPO is also a priority, along with promoting the LPO's position on ballot issues when directed to do so by the LPO Executive Committee. Email the Political Division at

Field Development Division

Field Development is focused on the creation and support of LPO county Affiliates and Development Grops, promoting the growth of present and future LPO members. We will support local Groups, LPO candidates and defend liberty on as many local issues as possible. Of course, we represent the grass-roots support of all Libertarian state and national candidates. We strive to connect with all fellow Libertarians through community  outreach, petitioning, campaigning, speaking engagements as well as local social events to connect and develop with other liberty-minded people of all walks of life.  Email the Field Development Division at

Regional Liaisons 

Regional liaisons work with the Field Development team focusing on outreach and the development of county parties within each of the nine regions across the state. They represent a voice of all counties in their region to the State Party and represent an important leadership position in developing candidates and leaders in each county in their region. See County Organization for a list of Regions and their leaders.
