2003 from Tuesday Aug. 11, on

July 8 to August 19: Independent Nominating Petition period

NOTE: July 8 was the first day that independent nominating bodies such as the former parties the Green Party, the Liberal Party, the Right to Life Party, and other independents such as the Libertarian Party, and truly unaffiliated independent candidates, can start collecting the thousands of signatures they need to get on the November ballot against the established parties. The petition deadline is only 6 weeks later. Notice that the crowded events of July 4th could not be used to collect these signatures. August 19 is the last day to petition.

Still pending in Federal court is the case to require Boards of Election to allow voters to register in the party of their choice (including Green, Libertarian, Natural Law, Liberal, RTL, Constitution, etc.) rather than being unconstitutionally restricted to a few state-approved political parties.

There will be a hearing on the New Cassel Urban Renewal Plan on Tuesday,  8/12 at 7:30 pm in the Town of North Hempstead Town Hall (220 Plandome Road, Manhasset) at 7:30pm.

As you may know, the Libertarian Party of Nassau has spoken out on behalf of the people of New Cassel subjected to May Newburger's urban renewal scheme to deprive them of their property and displace them. Similarly, the Libertarian Party of New York has spoken out against Time$cam and New Rochelle urban renewal schemes to deprive property owners, tenants and taxpayers of their property for the benefit of the NY Times and Ikea. Rochard Cooper initiated those LPNY efforts when he was State Chair.
