    Kyle O'Donnell, Chair

    $17.76 Monthly Donor. Our primary goal as a political party is to run candidates who are registered to vote as Libertarian. We stand the best chance of winning with local, non-partisan, and municipal races and have elected a candidate to public office. We also do well with Gubernatorial and Presidential candidates, which offer exciting options for the electorate. We will continue to achieve 1 to 5% of the vote for governor or president to maintain ballot access for down ballot candidates.

     

    O'Donnell loves the outdoors, waterfowl, and feels at home in rural America. Kyle and his partner Tom (also a Libertarain) enjoy raising chickens and cooking country food together. Kyle's top three political topics are balanced budgets, providing quality basic infrustructure, and social freedom to allow everyone to live their own conception of the good life.

     

    During the work week, O'Donnell manages a finance team and 26-million-dollar budget for 100+ coworkers across five counties on the Eastern Shore. In his spare time, he enjoys classic cinema, travel, bourbon and peated Scotch, and being with family.

    Stuart Simms

    Stuart Simms was born ~12 years BC (Before Capitals) and raised without ice hockey in Montgomery County. He enjoyed his friends, sports, and poker far more than his studies. A trendsetter, he took a fateful gap year between high school and the UMCP where he met his future wife, Laura, at freshman orientation. He is a Husband, Father of 2 and Grandfather of 5.

     

    His journey to the Libertarian Party began with a decision to start refereeing ice hockey in 1989. This trained him to be objective. In 1992, he decided to take his vote seriously, listened to the candidates, decided Mr. Clinton was a prevaricator, investigated what else he was being lied to about and realized it was pretty much everything. He then found the LP and cast a vote for the LP ticket of Andre Marrou and Nancy Lord. By the Spring of 1993 he had joined the LP and is a life member of the MDLP.

     

    With Dr. Scott Becker he co-founded Marylanders for Democracy and in the 1990s he successfully lobbied and testified in Annapolis to reduce the onerous ballot access requirements for minor parties and independent candidates that existed in Maryland at the time.

     

    Stuart is now in his third stint on the EB and has hosted LP parties as well as organizing conventions in the past for the Maryland party. Additionally, he has served as an uncommitted delegate to the national convention many times preferring to listen with an open mind to all candidates before deciding for whom to vote.

     

    Anastasia Pyzik thinks that he’s the best referee she’s ever seen, but that won’t keep her out of the sin bin.
