2nd Vice Chair - Mike Shipley

Secretary - Jeff Daniels

Born in Providence, RI, I grew up in Massachusetts, I have been an Arizona resident for 26 years and a Libertarian for 24 years. I became involved with the Maricopa LP and AZLP in 1994 as secretary of both. I have been happily married for 27 years with 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren.
As I grew tired of City government control/overreach in Phoenix, I moved to an area outside of Payson, close to Christopher Creek. My wife and I then originally organized the Gila County LP in 2002.
I am presently the Financial Officer (Treasurer) of our local Fire District. I volunteer at our local Bible Fellowship as Audio/Video Technician/Ministry. I am also the Chair of the Gila County Libertarians and am now Secretary of the Arizona Libertarian Party.
As a business owner of 3 water utilities, We regularly deal with the AZCC, ADEQ, ADWR, Gila County, Etc…
If you take the time to research and Vote Libertarian, I personally thank you. I takes a lot to realize that what you have been accustomed to, might not be the best answer for all and simple non-aggression principles can work. We are all individuals and need to work with each other.
