A Reading: The Fifth Amendment
Protects the People against abuse of government authority in court proceedings; also contains a favorite Libertarian hot button: no private property shall be taken for public use, without just compensation.

A Discussion: SILP Leadership and 2011 By-Law Amendments
Before we go to convention, we will need to discuss the makeup of our executive committee for 2011-2012, and propose/approve any amendments to our by-laws.
The People Speak: Your Topics, Your Thoughts
We yield the floor to any and all NY-13 neighbors and residents, regardless of political affiliation or subject matter. Speak your mind; observe your First Amendment rights. We respect all points of view.
Free Pocketsize Constitution!
The Staten Island Libertarian Party will once again be offering to all in attendance free pocket copies of the Constitution of the United States and Declaration of Independence.
Liberty Kitchen & Pantry!
We ask anyone planning to attend to consider bringing a food gift to the Town Hall for donation. Area food pantries are running short.

  • Baby food always needed
  • Non-perishable foodstuffs and canned goods
  • New or like-new pots, pans, microwaveable cookware, cooking utensils welcome
  • We’ll even find a good home for your extra or unneeded cookbooks

If you cannot attend but want to help, you may also arrange for pickup or find the nearest drop-off location by calling our Liberty Line @ 646-543-7457, or contact


Dear Friends,
My sincere thanks to you all for digging deep and helping to get the Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive off to such an inspiring start. We now have a car full of canned goods ready to be delivered.
Dave Narby, the SILP Secretary, has been in contact with Project Hospitality. We’ll be working with them and other neighborhood organizations to get these gifts to where they’re needed most.
Local food banks are reporting 30-40 additional families seeking assistance each week. We’re talking hard-working, self-reliant families who have simply found themselves overwhelmed by these tough economic times. And sadly, it might just get worse.
So please, keep it coming:

  • Jars of baby food always needed
  • Non-perishable foodstuffs and canned goods
  • New or like-new pots, pans, microwaveable cookware, and cooking utensils
  • Extra or unneeded cookbooks also welcome
  • No donation is too small.
  • Feel free to bring your gift to our next Town Hall meeting

To arrange for pickup or find the nearest drop-off location:

Call our Liberty Line at 646-543-7457

The goal of the Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive is simple: Help families to help themselves by maintaining a sense of independence, dignity, and self-worth. We’ll faithfully assist in providing food to those in need, plus the knowledge and tools to prepare it.
Again, thank you on behalf of your neighbors for your generosity and compassion.
Highest Regards,
Edward Stehlin, Chairman
