Party’s highest honor to one of our own!

From, the Libertarian Party's website . . .

The Thomas Jefferson award is the Party’s highest honor, presented to members whose achievements merit our recognition of outstanding leadership, high character and dedication to the principles and goals of the Party. This year’s award will be given to two individuals who have both displayed exemplary leadership skills and long-time devotion to the Libertarian Party.

The first recipient is Ruth Bennett, of Washington, who has been a party member since 1978. She has run for office on multiple occasions, as well as helping to manage several campaigns. She has been a state chair multiple times and has been involved in organizing a number of conventions at both the state and national level. Bennett has also been an outreach speaker and has served on the LNC. She recently announced that she would be seeking the Libertarian Party of Washington's nomination for governor.

And I add . . .

Ruth is an amazing activist, as well as interesting and fun. This award is well-deserved. Thanks to Ruth for all she does for Washington, for she has truly dedicated her time, her treasure, and her sacred honor to the cause of Liberty!
