Harrisburg, Pa. – The Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania and the New Jersey Libertarian Party will, for the first time, hold a joint convention March 14-16 at the Desmond Hotel & Conference Center in Malvern, PA.

The convention will feature presentations by our presidential candidates, workshops, special guest speakers and the LPPA’s annual awards ceremony.

On March 14, 2004 LP Presidential candidate Michael Badnarik will teach a full-day class on the Constitution.

The next day, eight 2008 Libertarian presidential hopefuls will participate in an exciting debate. “This will be excellent opportunity to evaluate these presidential hopefuls prior to the national convention in Denver,” said LPPA Convention Chairman James Babb.

An assortment of political activists, Badnarik, LP National Chairman Bill Redpath, Free State Project PorcFest organizer Rich Goldman, and author and self-described “tax heretic” Larken Rose will speak at different times throughout the weekend. Libertarian Party Co-founder Don Ernsberger, who currently serves as Chief of Staff for U.S. Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-California), will be Saturday night’s keynote speaker.

The convention will close Sunday after delegate credentialing and completion of state business.

Babb said the joint convention promises to be one of the best conventions ever.

“This unique two-state convention will provide great opportunities to collaborate,” he said. “Don’t miss it.”
