Full Statement about LPNH situation from LPNH State Chair Jilleta Jarvis


From State Chair Jilletta Jarvis:

Change in New Hampshire Libertarian Party

During the last two months I have watched a hostile take-over happen to
an organization that was fighting for the equality and freedom of every
individual in this state. An organization that wanted to see all people
treated with respect, to have the liberty to choose freedom. I believed
that with these same goals we could learn to work together.

I confess that I was wrong. I have watched secret plots occurring and
been shushed about it and advised that I was simply misunderstanding,
and that non-supportive behavior on my part would not be tolerated.
Meanwhile, these same individuals have made public statements about
their intention to rid my organization of those who had fought to build
it over all these years in this state. Their strategy of so-called
“bold messaging” is not designed to promote freedom and educate people
on how to peacefully take back the freedoms guaranteed to them in the
Constitution. Their strategy is, frankly, designed to discredit the
Libertarian Party in the state and in our nation.
