HFFT just received notice of tomorrow's press conference announcing that city councilman-at-large, Ed Coleman, is leaving the Republican Party to join the Libertarian Party. I'm not sure, but I don't think any other elected official has defected. Please pipe up to correct me if I'm wrong. This act of courage on Ed's part just might make national news.
You all can blame me, because I may have been the first to invite Ed to one of our friendly Libertarian gatherings last fall when the Mayor cut the arts budget.
If you are free tonight, there's a Libertarian After Hours on the south side at the Oaken Barrel. Please feel free to join us, no matter what your party affiliation. You will never meet a better bunch of politically astute and ethical people.
HERE'S THE PRESS RELEASE:
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The Libertarian Party of Marion County and Libertarian Party of Indiana has called a press conference for 10:30 AM, Tuesday, February 17th in the Capehart Room, 4th Floor of the Columbia Club at 121 Monument Circle where an existing, elected representative will announce a change of affiliation to the Libertarian Party.
Libertarian Party officials will make statements, provide additional information and will be available for questions at that time.
