On August 25, 2007, Alex Fitzsimmons joined the Libertarian Party of Queens County. He shortly thereafter joined the national Libertarian Party and signed the pledge, which was as follows:
I certify that I do not advocate the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals.
On August 28, 2008, he was appointed a Foundation Member of the Libertarian Freedom Council. On August 29, 2008, he was appointed the LFC Student Representative for Morris Knolls High School and was appointed as a voting Governing Board Member of the Libertarian Freedom Council in the capacity of Executive Assistant.
Dr. Tom Stevens, the LPQC State Representative, made a motion on the LPNY State Committee to have Alex Fitzsimmons designated as a fully credentialed voting delegate to the Libertarian Party's National Convention, which was to be held at the Sheraton Denver in Denver, Colorado over the Memorial Day weekend in 2008, despite the fact that Mr. Fitzsimmons continued to reside in New Jersey. That motion passed and Alex Fitzsimmons was designated a delegate. Mr. Fitzsimmons did not renew his membership in the Libertarian Party of Queens County for calendar year 2008 (a $20.00 expenditure) but did attend the Libertarian Party's National Convention.
During the Libertarian Party's National Convention, Dr. Tom Stevens asked Alex Fitzsimmons to nominate him for re-election to the Libertarian Party's Judicial Committee. Mr. Fitzsimmons addressed the convention and gave a good nominating speech. Dr. Stevens was re-elected to the Judicial Committee.
Mr. Fitzsimmons supported Wayne Allyn Root for the nomination of the Libertarian Party for President of the United States but switched to Bob Barr on the final ballot after Root dropped out of the race and endorsed Barr in return for Barr supporting him for the Vice-Presidential nomination.
On Saturday, June 14, 2008, Alex Fitzsimmons was scheduled to address the Libertarian Party of Queens County as a supplementary speaker to provide his perspective on the Libertarian Party's National Convention. Michael W. Reid, Jr. was the main Guest Speaker. Alex Fitzsimmons called to say he had gotten off the wrong exit in the Bronx but was going to use his G.P.S. to get back on the right road. Mr. Fitzsimmons never arrived and for two weeks did not return any calls or messages left for him. When the LPQC leadership finally got in touch with him, he stated that he just got frustrated and went home despite the fact that a packed room of Queens LP members were waiting in Bohemian Hall for him to arrive.
Alex Fitzsimmons never renewed his membership in the Libertarian Party of Queens County and it is unknown whether he renewed his membership in the national Libertarian Party, although it is unlikely. Mr. Fitzsimmons remained the LFC Student Representative for Morris Knolls High School until his graduation from that school in June, 2008. He remained Executive Assistant of the Libertarian Freedom Council until that organization ceased operating in the first half of 2009.
