The political fair at the recent convention of Junior State of America, held Saturday 22 April in Santa Clara, had a sizeable Libertarian presence. Activists from several Bay Area counties came together to provide a display of literature and buttons and to explain Libertarian ideas to the delegates — students from high schools in Northern California interested in politics and government.
This year the Libertarian representatives included two organizers of the Libertarian Youth Caucus — high-school students themselves who were able to make use of this opportunity to reach out to future voters in their own age group.
The Libertarian Party of California held its annual convention this past weekend in Santa Clara, electing new officers for a two-year term, along with additional members of the LPC Executive Committee.

The new Executive Committee, including several members elected at the 2016 convention to a two-year term, is as follows:
Chair: Ted Brown
Northern Vice Chair: Kenneth Brent Olsen
Southern Vice Chair: Jonathan Jaech
Secretary: Mimi Robson
Treasurer: Steve Haugh
At Large Members:
Susan Marie Weber
(Executive Committee members for the coming year.)
Two of the members of the new Executive Committee, Treasurer Steve Haug and At Large member Robert Imhoff, are from Santa Clara County. The convention also elected two Alternates, one of whom is from Santa Clara County.
