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. Prior to becoming Vice-chair, she served multiple terms on the LPAC Executive Committee. Betz has actively applied her professional background in high-tech Public Relations to libertarian causes at the local, statewide and presidential campaign level.
Theodore Gercken has been an active volunteer in building up our Social Media presence and managing our web development as Communications Director. He is a high school student at College Prep and the acting Vice-Chair for the Libertarian Youth Caucus, a nationwide organization with chapters of high schoolers and college students across the nation. Theodore loves and competes in speech and debate and is putting his skills to work to fight for a world set free of big government.

He moved back to California after his enlistment was over and joined the Libertarian Party of Alameda County. Michael hopes to grow the local LP and to show the residents of the county, that the Libertarian Party isn't just the "third option" but the ONLY option, in true Liberty.
