On Wednesday evening, the Staten Island Libertarian Party presents the “Liberty Tree Town Hall,” in the dining room at Karl’s Klipper, 40 Bay Street, in St. George across from the post office.
2011 Civic Initiatives Update
Sit in on our review of first quarter project planning. If you’re looking to make a difference in our community, this is the place to be. There is much to be done. No contribution of time or effort too small. All are welcome.
2012 Candidate Discussion
The first in a series of conversations about the next general election cycle. Ever think about running for office? Know somebody that should run for office? Stop by, patriots wanted.
The People Speak
We yield the floor to any and all neighbors and residents, regardless of party affiliation, topic, or positions on the issues. Come speak your mind, observe your First Amendment rights. Give us your views of our government. Share your vision for the future of our community. Visitors and Members of the Free Press always welcome.
