Executive Committee

The Libertarian Party of Alameda County is managed on an ongoing basis by an Executive Committee comprised of seven officers who are elected annually by the LPAC Central Committee membership: Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and three At-Large Positions.


Chair


John Ferrero

John Ferrero is the fourth-year Chair for the Libertarian Party of Alameda County. He was born and raised in Oakland and joined the Libertarian Party in 2018 to improve their outreach and get Libertarians elected to office. His task has simple goals, shrink government involvement in people's lives and allow maximum freedom with minimal government control on any level. He believes we can voluntarily help each other without a government program that simply fails every time it is poorly instituted and holds a large tax burden to people who actually could choose their own causes to donate to, or participate in if they had the opportunity to do so.

 

Vice-chair


Elizabeth Stump
[email protected] 

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.

 

Secretary


Theodore Gercken
[email protected]

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.
