Alameda County LP Officers
A native, and resident of Oakland, California for 30 years. Left the 2 party duopoly in 2000 to be independent like many others. I found my home in latter 2007 to 2012 yet didn't commit to the Libertarian Party until 2018. I'm serving my first term as chair (2019).
I work in the private sector in retail managing a small business so I do understand the struggles.
Director of Open-Source Liberty, a volunteer based candidate support group.
Field Director of Open-Source Liberty California, a subsidiary of Open-Source Liberty

Professionally, Jim is Owner/Principal Analyst for E&I Consulting specializing.

His final fifteen years focused on electricity storage, with an emphasis on benefits and value propositions.
He has served as Senior Advisor for California Energy Storage Alliance (2013-2017) and Senior Analyst with Distributed Utility Associates (1996 - 2006).

He holds undergraduate degree (double major) in Physics and Management from Sonoma State University and an M.A. in Management also from Sonoma State University.
Terry Floyd had to write-in Roger McBride’s name the first time he voted for President because the LP didn’t have ballot status in Texas back then but for some reason, he didn’t join the LP after moving to California until 1992. Since then, he’s run as a Libertarian for California’s 18th Assembly District and the Eden Township Hospital District, as well as serving as the LPAC‘s Treasurer from 2004 to 2019. As Secretary, he maintains minutes of the party’s business meetings and tries to keep things organized. Outside the LP, Terry is a tinfoil hat-wearing paranoid privacy advocate and that’s really just about all you need to know. ;-)
Executive Committee At-Large Members
I was born a Libertarian. It took Ron Paul in his 2012 presidential run to give me the vocabulary to explain how I thought and feel. I want people to live their lives how they see fit as long as it doesn’t hurt or take from others.
Elizabeth Stump has always been a Libertarian, but didn't know it. She voted for Ron Paul in 1988 out of protest, because she could not stomach voting for either Bush or Dukakis, in her first presidential election. In 2011, she learned about the Libertarian Party and realized she had found a party in which she didn't loath half the platform. Elizabeth has a background in high tech Public Relations.
