MEETING AGENDA



A Reading: The Fifth Amendment
Protects the People against abuse of government authority in court proceedings; also contains a favorite Libertarian hot button: no private property shall be taken for public use, without just compensation.

A Discussion: SILP Leadership and 2011 By-Law Amendments
Before we go to convention, we will need to discuss the makeup of our executive committee for 2011-2012, and propose/approve any amendments to our by-laws.
The People Speak: Your Topics, Your Thoughts
We yield the floor to any and all NY-13 neighbors and residents, regardless of political affiliation or subject matter. Speak your mind; observe your First Amendment rights. We respect all points of view.
Free Pocketsize Constitution!
The Staten Island Libertarian Party will once again be offering to all in attendance free pocket copies of the Constitution of the United States and Declaration of Independence.
Liberty Kitchen & Pantry!
We ask anyone planning to attend to consider bringing a food gift to the Town Hall for donation. Area food pantries are running short.

  • Non-perishable foodstuffs and canned goods
  • New or like-new pots, pans, microwaveable cookware, cooking utensils welcome
  • We’ll even find a good home for your extra or unneeded cookbooks

Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive

As Libertarians we teach and support the American heritage of liberty, enterprise, and personal responsibility. Yet there are periods when hard-working, self-reliant families can find themselves overwhelmed by tough times.
For a growing number of families, those times have now hit home.
As a result, our local food banks and pantries have been hard hit, too. We’ve heard from several organizations that 30-40 additional families are seeking assistance each week.
In case you missed our last Liberty Tree Town Hall or recent posts, the Staten Island Libertarian Party is on the move collecting food and other kitchen essentials. Today we’re asking your help.
Non-perishable foodstuffs and canned goods are preferred. Baby food and formula are always needed. Any new or like-new pots, pans, microwaveable cookware, or cooking utensils are also welcome. We’ll even find a good home for any of your extra or unneeded cookbooks.
A Staten Island Libertarian Party officer will coordinate with the food banks and pantries, so these goods reach those operations with the most urgent needs. You may also specify one of your own choosing.
To arrange for pickup or find the nearest drop-off location, call our Liberty Line @ 646-543-7457 or contact info@statenislandlp.org. You can also bring your donation to our next Town Hall meeting. No donation is too small.
The goal of the Liberty Kitchen & Food Drive is simple: Help families to help themselves by maintaining a sense of independence, dignity, and self-worth. We’ll faithfully assist in providing food to those in need, plus the knowledge and tools to prepare it.
On behalf of our neighbor friends and families, we thank you for anything you can contribute.
