Angela Keaton continues the battle re Executive Director search

From LNC member Angela Keaton’s blog.

ENM observation: I can understand why they might want to keep Executive Director resumes from being made public, but there is no reason why the LNC members – elected to represent and protect the members’ interests – should not see the resumes.  This really makes me wonder what they are trying to hide.

Excellent idea. Let’s post all the resumes to the and we will let the membership vote on who will get paid to insult the membership, ignore the principles and cater to the officers’ whims.

“The activities of the Libertarian National Committee are not for the benefit of the committee but for the membership of the Party. Executive session is limited and specific to internal matters regarding hired personnel and possible pending litigation.

We owe a debt to Dr. Ruwart for suggesting that the other committee members be allowed to see the resumes.


Ms Keaton:

I can think of one reason right off the top of my head why the viewing of received ED resumes should be restricted to the ED Search Committee and the Chair: some job applicants don’t want their employer to know they are looking for a new position. I am sure there are other valid reasons that applicants would not want their resumes to be even semi-public.

I would like to know why Dr. Ruwart, Ms. Keaton, and maybe Mr. Wrights want ED applicant’s resumes, or at least their names, to be available to the membership and/or the LNC, yet these same LNC members do not want even the other members of the LNC to know how LNC members are doing in the Give or Get Program. I would think that if you are in favor of full disclosure, you would be very happy for the membership to see the Give or Get totals.

Scott Lieberman

  1. what is a give or get total? I would like to know how is in the running? Why dont they ask them if they would like thier names released that might solve the problem quickly.

  2. Lieberman is an idiot.

  3. Sure, why not make the fundraising numbers — and the largest fundraisers for each LNC member — public as well?

    Sunshine is a good thing, as George Phillies has proven time and again.

    Post the resumes, solicit questions from the membership for individual candidates, and put the ED slot up to a vote of state delegates — just as we have done for Chair and other key positions.
