Charlottesville, VA Meeting April 3
« Reply #1 on: March 24, 2004, 09:29:07 pm »

Dear friends of liberty,

The "Appalachians" Local Group of the Free State Project will be holding its first informal lunch meeting on Saturday, April 3, in Charlottesville, Virginia.  This local group encompasses western Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland.

Anyone interested in learning more about the FSP and/or meeting those involved is invited.  Also, please forward this message to anyone who you think might be interested in attending.

The Free State Project is an organization working to convince 20,000 advocates of individual rights and limited government to move to the low-population state of New Hampshire.  By concentrating our numbers in this great state, which already leans toward small government, we hope to leverage our numbers and America's tradition of federalism to enact reforms that significantly reduce the size and scope of government.

The FSP is a bold new strategy for achieving liberty in our lifetime, and is increasingly recognized by many as one of the most important developments in the freedom movement.

Learn more at the our web site:  http://www.freestateproject.org

MEETING DETAILS:

WHEN:
Saturday, April 3, at 3:00pm

WHERE:
Mellow Mushroom Restaurant
1309 West Main Street
Charlottesville, Va.
ph: 434-972-9366

Hi all--sorry I've been an absentee temporary local leader.  If anyone can make it into DC on Saturday, November 20th, we would love to have you join us for the local meeting.

Posted all over the place:

FSP Mid-Atlantic Group
November Meeting and Announcements

Saturday, November 20th, 1pm
Luigi’s Restaurant - http://www.famousluigis.com
1132 19th Street, NW
Washington, DC

Come on up to the second floor—I have a table reserved, and it should be quiet and conducive to some real work (with some good food).  Because of the reservations, I will ask people (more seriously, this time) to try to rsvp to krick at freestateproject dot org in advance.  No harm done if you can’t, but we can make sure to have a seat for you.

Now that the election’s over with, let’s get back to business.  The FSP needs more members than it has, and I’m taking it on as a personal goal to add 200 new folks (to our 400-ish now) in the Mid-Atlantic region in the next six months.  That’s half of what we’d get if everyone who receives this email recruited one person.  It’s more than doable.

To that end, I’m going to ask for help on a few projects, and offer help on projects that you come up with.  My projects include:

-   The great flyer give-away.  This is activism at its simplest—just tack these things anywhere you can reach.  I’ll supply the flyers, you supply an hour of your time.  I’ll bring a pile to the meeting.

-   FSP overpass banners.  A cheap way to get seen by a bunch of people right when they feel least inclined to be meek and agreeable (i.e, when they’re stuck in traffic on the way to work).  We can put these things up everywhere from I-95 to various beltways—anywhere with a nasty rush hour will do.  We need slogan ideas and volunteers.  I can make a few of these and try to find ways to fund them (donations, anyone?), or you can take this on as your own activism with any help I can offer.

-   Keith Murphy’s radio ad.  Keith is working on a radio buy for a Baltimore station that targets our audience.  He needs to raise some more money, and may still be taking edits on the script.  To get involved email him at kmurphy at freestateproject dot org or go to http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?board=4;action=display;threadid=8630

That leaves your stuff.  Tell me what you want to do, what you need help on, whatever—it’s my job to be of assistance.  Every one of us is less than 3 recruitments away from New Hampshire, and I don’t know about you, but I’m no longer in a patient mood.  Let’s get started.  Hope to see you Saturday.

Upcoming Events:

The D.A.R.E. Generation Returns to DC – SSDP 2004 Conference - http://www.ssdp.org/home/ssdp_conference2004_info.htm
November 17–20, University of Maryland, College Park
Students—join Students for Sensible Drug Policy for four days of discussion and lobbying.  Details at http://www.ssdp.org/


SepCon2004 - http://www.sepcon.org/
November 20–22, Washington, DC
Government-schooling foes of the world unite!  The Alliance for the Separation of School and State hosts its annual conference.  If education is your issue, this is the place to be.  Registration information at http://www.sepcon.org/regform.php

Next Meeting: Saturday, December 18th

Now that I'm in NH, Morgantown is my home away from home.  Got my Master's degree from WVU, and my folks live down the road in Fairmont.

It will probably be several months before I visit WV again, but when I do, I'd be more than happy to share my free state experiences with a group... even if it's a group of one or two.   Smiley

Dee,

Your funny - do you know what forum you're on? We've chosen New Hampshire!  Maine has the highest state and local taxes in the US - no wonder you want to leave!  If you want more liberty, NH is the place!  Grin

State and local taxes:
NH #49
ME #1
WV #21
http://www.taxfoundation.org/research/topic/9.html

Hey folks,
Living in Huntington currently, been thinking and considering the FSP for quite some time. I finally decided to make the leap and commit. I've been talking to friends about this, and might have one or two that will join me.
