The Libertarian Party is the nation's third largest political Party.
The LPH is seeking candidates for the 2022 election.
Our priority is the state legislature. If elected you will be receiving a salary of about $56,000 for four months full time work and whatever part time efforts you wish to put in the rest of the year.
We are happy to have candidates who do not have all the qualities we are looking for as long as they are good libertarians. Chances of winning are impacted when a candidate has more to offer. Logistics in terms of the candidate’s time commitment, ability to raise money or contribute their own funds, are also clearly important to getting into the legislature.
Please contact Tracy Ryan if you’d like to discuss this at 808-534-1846 or email@example.com

People skills are very important in any serious campaign. A candidate should not be wary of knocking on doors, making phone calls, and speaking to groups. A candidate should be a good listener and realize that he or she doesn’t have all the answers.
It is advantageous to have roots in the district, ties to friends and family there, a business there, etc. If you grew up and/or went to high school in the area that is a big plus.
If you have some political experience or have worked on community or non-profit projects that is also a help.
