A Memorial for Dallas E Legan II

Vicki Fogelson has sent out the following message:

A memorial service for my brother will be held on Saturday, August 12th from 4 to 6 p.m. at Lighthouse Memorials & Receptions, 1016 west 164th Street, Gardena, CA, 90247.

This will be an informal event (i.e. "come as you are") and there will be no clergy. This will be a catered memorial (i.e. there will be a meal provided). We can share our remembrances of Dallas's life and his accomplishments.

I want this to be a celebration of his life. My sister Maggie and I want to express our gratitude to Dallas's circle of friends.

Antifa Threatens Liberty -- Fight Back

Libertarians might be interested in this petition to the White House, which says:

 
President Trump,
 
In 2017 alone, Antifa is responsible for violent riots at Berkeley University in response to conservative speakers Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter hosting campus events, shutting down the Portland Rose Parade with threats of violence, inciting others to violence, acts and threats of vandalism and committing violence themselves against conservatives on campus and across the nation, widespread organized barbarism against the police and patriotic civilians alike, including small businesses and public infrastructure. They harm, stalk, and harass individuals of differing opinions on a day-to-day basis. They are a threat to our first amendment rights. We urge you to address this threat and acknowledge Antifa organizations for what they are; domestic terrorist organizations. 


If you agree, you can sign the petition over here.

Dallas E. Legan II, RIP

We are very sad to report that our friend, KHC member Dallas E. Legan II, passed away on January 29, 2017, at County USC Medical Center, of cancer.

Dallas served our club as Senior Associate Facilitator and Director of Distribution, responsible for managing the mailing list and for other duties. He will be sorely missed.

Plans for a memorial service later this year are pending. We will keep all apprised of the memorial arrangement.

If anyone knows anything about Dallas's next of kin, please contact Mike Everling or Jay Jones.

Richard Kyle, RIP

We learned only recently of the passing of Richard Kyle, on December 10, 2016, after a long illness.
Richard was a bookseller (owner of Richard Kyle Books in Long Beach, CA), a writer and publisher, and a friend to the Founders and many members of the KHC. He is missed.
The Beat reports that Richard is credited with inventing the term "graphic novel."
More information about Richard at Mark Evanier's website.
Brad Linaweaver will deliver a memorial for Richard, and for actor Richard Hatch, at the KHC's the April 2017 meeting.

Vote No on Measure H -- on March 7, 2017

Don't forget to vote No on Measure H in the March 7th special election.

Measure H would raise the Los Angeles County sale tax by 1/4 percent, allegedly to fund homeless services. But as every libertarian knows, all "dedicated" revenue ends up in the general revenue, to then be wasted by politicians.

No on Measure H is a no-brainer. Don't forget to vote!

Pamela Maltzman, RIP


Sam Wells reports in an email:

I am very sorry to report that Pamela Maltzman passed away in her sleep on August 10, 2016. She had been having serious medical problems involving the heart and kidneys and was undergoing dialysis three times a week. She had problems standing and walking, and her vision was failing, as her diabetes took its toll. She will be mourned, missed, and remembered by many.

Pamela had attended the KHC many times throughout the 1990s and 2000s, until moving Kingman, Arizona with Sam.

June 2016 Primary -- LPC Election Results

Libertarian Party of California Chair, Ted Brown, emailed this report to LPC members:

The Secretary of State has posted the final statement of vote for the June primary.

Libertarian voter registration is 115,189, or 0.64%, down slightly from our high point.

For the presidential primary, 9,972 non-partisan voters chose to take the Libertarian presidential primary ballot; this is the first time we have allowed non-Libertarians to vote in our presidential primary

For U.S. Senator, Gail Lightfoot received 99,761 votes and Mark Herd received 41,344 votes, for a total of 141,105.

For our candidates who were printed on the ballot, the vote percentages were:

 

CD 9 - Alex Appleby - 3.9%

SD 13 - John Webster - 5.7%

AD 8 - Janice Bonser - 7.2%

AD 24 - John Inks - 4.2%

AD 35 - Dominic Rubini - 3.4%

AD 42 - Jeff Hewitt - 7.8%



Unfortunately, none of them was in Top Two.

For write-in candidates:

 

SD 33 - Honor Mimi Robson - 47 votes - on to November

AD 1 - Donn Coenen - 446 votes - on to November

AD 2 - Ken Anton - 56 votes - on to November

AD 7 - Janine Kloss - 51 votes - beaten by another write-in candidate

AD 49 - Boomer Shannon - 25 votes - beaten by another write-in candidate

AD 51 - Mike Everling - 7 votes - on to November

AD 62 - Baron Bruno - 32 votes - tied with another write-in candidate; under the law, both will advance to November for a unique "Top Three."



Ultimately, there are only two unopposed legislators for November: Democrat Eduardo Garcia in AD 56 and Democrat Reggie Jones-Sawyer in AD 59. I am disappointed because I almost had someone in AD 56, but it didn't pan out. In any event, we will have five state legislative candidates in November.

For liberty,

Ted Brown
