On June 22, 2011, Mark Axinn, Chair of the New York Libertarian Party, endorsed Carl Person for the Libertarian Party's Presidential Nomination in 2012. In his public statement, Mr. Axinn wrote the following:
It is with great pleasure that I write to endorse my friend and fellow freedom-lover, Carl Person of New York City, for the Libertarian Party 2012 Presidential nomination.
Last year, I worked closely with Carl as he ran for New York State Attorney General. His campaign was so effective that he received over 36,500 votes in the general election -- our best showing for that position in the history of the LPNY.
Carl is an attorney, an urban-dweller and a dedicated libertarian. He has fought against the State and entrenched powers for decades. I believe that he will be a fine candidate to bring our message of limited government and personal freedom to the sheeple of America.
The Libertarian Party's National Convention will be held May 4-6, 2012 at the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa located at 11011 West Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas, Nevada 89135.
