May was a very busy month for the Libertarian Party of Kosciusko County (LPKC).

The month began with LPKC volunteers picking trash up for the National Liberty Day of Service on May 1. The crew cleared a car load of trash from the area around the CCAC and Chinworth Bridge, according to a  news release from LPKC.

Next, several delegates from the northern half of the state met in Morgan County for a community outreach and training event. Delegates learned a great deal and plan to bring these skills back to the communities, the release states.

The Libertarian Party convention meeting was held May 10 and two more candidates were nominated and confirmed. David Lewis will seek election to the County Council for District 3 and Cassie Rolon will seek election to the Wayne Township Board. The party is still able to nominate candidates for office; contact the LPKC for more information.

Josh Vergiels, Libertarian candidate for state representative for District 22, has been actively campaigning in the community. Look for him at upcoming events for a chance to voice your concerns and see what Libertarians have to offer, the news release states.

County chair Cassie Rolon will be traveling to Reno, Nev., at the end of the month to serve as a delegate for the Libertarian Party National Convention. There she will represent the interests of Hoosiers in deciding party leadership, platform and priorities for the coming years.

There are a ton of events coming up that the LPKC would also like to highlight:

* Visit their booth at the First Friday events from June to October.

* LPKC is joining Elkhart County Libertarians for a Day of Service on June 11 to help with a local animal shelter, New Hope Pet Rescue in Syracuse.

* They will have a booth at this year’s county fair where the public can speak with local libertarians and candidates.

Contact the LPKC on Facebook, by email ( or by joining one of their meetings.
