On April 11th, the Libertarian Party of the Seacoast New Hampshire held their first annual convention. Fourteen of our twenty-four members were in attendance. All bylaw proposals were approved and elections for new officers were held. Brian McQuade was re-elected as chair of the party, and Nicholas Boyle was also re-elected as Secretary. First-time appointments included Brian Shields as vice chair, Forrest Osterman as Treasurer and Gary McGath as the at-large member to round out the executive committee.
In addition to this, the Event Coordinating Committee was reauthorized with Robb Goodell as chair and the Campaigning Coordinating Committee was created with Brian Shields as Chair, this committee will work regionally at times with the LPNH Campaign Coordinating Committee to offer assistance and resources for members wishing to seek office.
