Check out the Libertarian Podcast called Roads to Liberty hosted by Ben Backus (WNLP.org, Scotts Bluff County LP, LPNE.org, etc.) and Michael Knebel (LPNE.org). They generally put out a new one weekly, though do enjoy some weeks/holidays away from it.

Ben Backus ran unopposed for Gering City Council – Ward III and therefor is now an elected Libertarian!
As you might noticed the web site doesn’t get a lot of updating as a lot of what goes on within the WNLP area ends up on Facebook, so to that end I changed the Events Calendar to a widget to pull data from the Facebook Events. The By-laws are generally kept up to date when new revisions are voted on. Right now since Scotts Bluff County adopted the WNLP-base By-laws we are keeping the WNLP By-laws in step with them; as of right now they are the only county within the WNLP area with a party.
On February 17th, 2016 the Scotts Bluff County Libertarian Party help their 2016 County Convention. Below I have attached the PDF on file from the Convention.

Sorry for being very SLOW to post updates here lately. Below are some details pulled directed from the LPNE page about the 2016 State Convention being held in Omaha, NE on April 16th. I added it to the Calendar as well. Soon there will be a Calendar spot for the 2016 Scotts Bluff County Convention as well. All registered Libertarians in Scotts Bluff county were sent a postcard in the mail and should have them by now.

It looks like the fracking waste water well is a done deal. Pete Ricketts appointed the last commissioner for the hearing, who happens to own oilfields. The rules for the hearing state that only people who live within a half mile of the well can comment…so basically no one.

It’s a new year and time to start fresh with a new Nebraska Unicameral. We have plans to work with Nebraska Friends of Midwives since LB428 failed to make it out of the HHS Committee in 2014.
Expect more as the year moves on and keep an eye out for when we start our monthly meetings again. If you have any input please contact Ben Backus or myself.
