Following election day and his 16.0 percent result in
his race for Fairfield City Council, Brian
Thiemer posted this message for supporters
at his campaign web site:
Dear friends, family and fellow
The election results are in, and I placed
fourth for one of two seats. Although I was not
victorious, I do feel successful. Over 7,500
votes were cast for me, representing 16 percent
of the votes submitted. That sends a message
that there is a significant portion of the
population that desires maximum freedom and
minimum waste from their local government, and
is a force to be reckoned with in future
I am proud of the campaign I ran, and am
eternally grateful for the support that all of
you have provided in my quest to make Fairfield
a great place to live, work and prosper. I will
continue to fight for value and liberty in our
community now, and in the future.

Starr, a former LPC chair, ran a tremendous
campaign in 2016 as a Libertarian candidate
for Oxnard City Council. The
race was so close that on Nov. 30, the Ventura County Star was still reporting on the vote count
in progress. Although he didn’t win his
council race, Starr presses on with his
concurrent campaign to overturn the city’s
sewer-utility rate increase. The following
update is excerpted from Starr’s April 7

McArdle uses Tenth Amendment as campaign theme in U.S.
by Elizabeth C. Brierly
Libertarian Angela McArdle ran in a field of 24
nonincumbent candidates (20 Democrats, one
Republican, a Green, and an independent) in a
special election for U.S. Congress in
California’s 34th District, which includes
most of downtown Los Angeles. The so-called
primary election was held on April 4, and

active volunteer with two charities and as a
professional paralegal, McArdle was driven
to run for Congress because she’s “seen
firsthand how our government has harmed good
people while rewarding the bad.”
McArdle’s campaign platform,
with its explicit Tenth Amendment theme,
highlighted the power that states have,
against overreach by the federal government.
She had pledged, if elected, to slash the U.S.
military’s “war chest,” balance the federal
budget, eliminate needless bureaucracies,
promote free trade, fully legalize cannabis
and hemp, repeal the U.S.A. PATRIOT Act and
NDAA, and eliminate all laws criminalizing

how little support she received from
the registered Libertarians in the district.
“The active libertarians in southern
California gave me lots of support through
volunteering, campaign contributions, and
general encouragement, but it seems very few
to the polls,” she observed. “I think lots of
people check the Libertarian box on their
voter registration form, without actually
knowing what a libertarian is. So general
educating of voters and consistent branding of
that word are vital to our candidates’
plain-old vote totals.”

“Yes; actually, I plan to run for the same

a large organization, you’ll spend years
climbing the corporate ladder, then, after a
lot of work and with some luck, you might
find yourself in a position to lead the

different corporate culture, etc.
Or, you could use leverage from the outside to
accomplish the same objective, by creating a
competing organization offering a new
vision, a new culture, or a new direction.
Then, competition in the marketplace will
make the existing organization change its

perhaps even go out of business. (Unless

- Special tip: Mail to

last 12 months.Otherwise you will
probably lose money on the mailing.

candidates, events are more likely to
yield results if well organized, well
promoted, and well executed.
- When a
candidate is a featured speaker at
another organization’s event where the
leadership strongly supports the
candidate’s campaign, fundraising may be
possible. Ask leaders if they will make
an appeal to their members to donate. It
may also be appropriate for the
candidate to ask for donations and
volunteers during his/her presentation.
- Have a
donation form, pen, and envelope for
every person there.
some point, formally ask the entire
group to fill out the form and donate.
4. On the phone
- Call people
and ask them to donate, preferably by
credit card over the phone.
- It’s okay if your sales pitch is very short.
5. One-on-one meetings in
- This is how
you raise large donations from your best
someone to meet with you is the hardest
part. If you get a meeting, it might
last 30 minutes, and about 15 minutes
into it, you’ve already explained what
you’re raising funds for, and you have
asked for a donation.
- How many
thousands should you ask for? Depends on
your project and the donor’s ability.
- Copy what other organizations or state or
county Libertarian Party affiliates are
doing, who are successfully raising money.
Before acting on someone’s advice, find out
how much they are actually raising per year.
- Monthly-pledge programs are a great way to
bring in a predictable flow of funds. Many
on-line services will provide monthly-pledge
- E-mails and letters should be from one
person to one other person, e.g.,
“Dear John, I would like you to help me by
donating to the Libertarian Party.” Notes
from the chair are probably best. (Don’t
stress out about mail-merging, if that’s
difficult. It’s OK to say “Dear
- You can find a fundraising package
template in your word processor, including a
letter, response form, carrier envelope, and
return envelope. Use our sample letters to
quickly put together a fundraising package:
- Bruce Eberle, chairman of the direct-mail
fundraising firm Eberle Associates, says
that one of the most common flaws in direct
mail is overuse of graphics. I say, put a
logo on the envelope and on page 1 of the
letter, if it’s convenient for you.
Otherwise, no graphics at all!
- You’re not a beggar—you’re a hero! Jerold
Panas, author of Asking: A 59-Minute
Guide to Everything Board Members,
Volunteers, and Staff Must Know to Secure
a Gift, writes: “Congratulations.
You’re among the greatest and the most
privileged. You’re about to undertake what
George Bernard Shaw called, ‘The joy of
being used for a purpose recognized by all
as a mighty one.’ … Your task is vital
because without your help your organization
couldn’t exist.” People like to donate. They
know you’re not perfect. They appreciate
your effort. Give them the joy of helping
you! (I highly recommend that book for
one-one-one in-person fundraising.)
- Be honest and careful with predictions.
One of the reasons I’ve raised money
successfully, year after year, is that I’m
optimistic, yet honest and realistic. I’m in
this for the long haul, and I don’t want to
make promises I can’t keep. The LP has been
around for 45 years. Our best donors have
been around for many years; they are
sophisticated, and they know what’s what.
- Fundraising letters are newsletters, too!
I learned from Richard Viguerie, a
direct-mail guru, that fundraising letters
aren’t just for raising money. They are also
newsletters, advertising, and much more.
Even if a recipient doesn’t donate, and even
if your letter just breaks even, that letter
still benefits the party in many ways.
- Premiums such as T-shirts, books, and
coffee mugs help boost revenue, but don’t
make them your primary focus for raising
funds. Shipping costs and unsold items cut
into profits. Also, consider the labor to
manage the materials, and space to store
