Dave Narby, SILP Secretary, was elected as one of five Members at Large during the recent LPNY State Convention. Danny Panzella (AD 63), was chosen in a special election to assume the post of State Committee Representative.
STATEN ISLAND, NY, June 3, 2011 – The Staten Island Libertarian Party (SILP) announced that two of its members have been elected to take on additional responsibilities at the state level with the Libertarian Party of New York (LPNY). Founded in 1970, the LPNY has played a crucial role in the creation and growth of today’s largest independent party in the United States.
Dave Narby, SILP Secretary, was elected as one of five Members at Large during the recent LPNY State Convention. He will be involved with a number of special assignments for the state party chairman, Mark Axinn, including community liaison activities, and assisting with the development of emerging chapters in the greater New York City metropolitan area.
Mr. Narby ran a highly respectable grassroots campaign for Assembly District 61 in last year’s midterm elections. He regards his political stance as centrist in nature, and has been a registered independent Libertarian for over a decade.
An investor and entrepreneur, Mr. Narby is well studied in the science of sound-money principles and economic policy. He resides in the Silver Lake community with his wife, Jennifer DeSanctis-Narby.
Another 2010 SILP assembly candidate, Danny Panzella (AD 63), was chosen in a special election to assume the post of State Committee Representative. Mr. Panzella will represent and vote the interests of the Staten Island chapter at the monthly LPNY state committee meetings. Richard Bier previously held the position, and will continue in his role as SILP vice chairman.
A founding member of the Staten Island Tea Party Patriots, Mr. Panzella has since expanded his tea party activism throughout New York City. Along the way he has forged a reputation as a determined and outspoken advocate for government transparency. He works as an independent investigative journalist and publishes his online magazine, Truth Squad TV.
Mr. Panzella lives in Manor Heights with his wife Jo Ann and their newborn son, Xander. They enjoy raising chickens and gardening as a hobby.

On April 24, 2010, in Albany, the New York State Libertarian Party held its annual convention. Party officers and candidates for state and national offices for 2010 were nominated and elected.
The new officers of the State party include Mark Axinn, Chair (former Vice-Chair); Audrey Capozzi and Donald Silberger, Vice-Chair; Gary Triestman, Treasurer; and Staten Island’s own Brian DeMarzo, Secretary. Having an officer of the Staten Island chapter also sitting on the State Committee will undoubtedly help leverage our chapter’s position in the State.
The following candidates were nominated and elected to run for the noted state and national offices.
- Governor: Warren Redlich
- U.S. Senate: Randy Credico
- U.S. Senate: John Clifton
- Lieutenant Governor: Alden Link
- Comptroller: John Gaetani
- Attorney General: Carl Person
