Effective at noon today, August 29, 2009, I tender my resignation as vice-chairman of the Libertarian Party of Kentucky. Some of us have discussed this in private, but I will make the explanation clear for the record. In order to protect the LPKY, we must comply with the draconian and tyrannical mandates of the FEC and the McCain-Feingold Incumbent Protection Act of 2003. I will be working as a volunteer for Rand Paul's campaign, so I must step down.
For my part, I am glad to have served with such a bright and motivated collection of freedom activists as yourselves. It has been an honor to work with you, and I'm sure we will continue to advance the cause of liberty side-by-side in the years to come. I remain committed to the ideals that we all hold dear, and I look forward to seeing the growth of the LPKY over the years. Our beliefs that the individual will always be more important than the state constitute the only path to a brighter and freer tomorrow, and I am glad that Kentucky has a party dedicated to that belief. Thank you for all that you do.
K. Joshua Koch
