SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Libertarians in the Ozarks began preparing for the 2018 elections on Saturday.
The Greene County Libertarian Party held its county convention Saturday morning.
The party is working to elect its officers and nominate the 2018 primary candidates for public office.
The group today discussed the platforms it will be representing this year.
Party leaders say they’re looking for new members and people interested in serving as candidates.
They say the party provides another option for people whose beliefs don’t necessarily align with Democrats nor Republicans.
“We are wanting to spread the ideas of liberty, limited government and maximized liberty, let people control their own lives. If you don’t violate the rights of someone else you should govern your own life the way you see fit,” Chris Burros, treasurer for the Libertarian Party of Greene County, said.
Speakers at the event included representatives from United Cannabis, Fluoride-Free Springfield, Greene County Audit, and petition for a county charter.
