New Linn County Officers Elected

At the monthly Linn County Affiliate Meeting on March 16th, a new team of officers were elected. “We in the State Central Committee are energized by the election of new leadership in Linn County.” said Heath Long, District Two Representative. “We should see consistent activity and public engagement in the support of liberty in this important county, where we get more Libertarian votes than any other county in Iowa. An active affiliate is a good indicator of liberty on the move for all of Iowa.”
