Event description

Description


The Libertarian Association of Massachusetts
2017 State Convention

Speakers:

Carla Howell - Keynote

In 2002 Carla Howell chaired the 2002 ballot initiative to end the state income tax in Massachusetts. The initiative received 45% of the total vote! In 2010, Ms. Howell led another ballot initiative to roll back the state income tax to 3%.

"Howell's ballot question to eliminate the state income tax - and the campaign for governor she has built around it - shows more ideological courage than Republican Mitt Romney or Democrat Shannon O'Brien will probably ever have."
- Boston Herald, September 23, 2002

She has run for Governor and Senate, with the trademark theme: “Small government is beautiful”.

She has served as the chair of the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts, co-founder of the Center for Small Government and is presently the Political Director of the Libertarian National Committee.

Jeff Miron - Banquet Speaker

Jeffrey Miron is a Senior Lecturer and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Economics at Harvard University, as well as a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. His field of expertise is the economics of libertarianism; he has advocated for many libertarian policies, including legalizing all drugs and allowing failing banks to go bankrupt. He has written four books including "Drug War Crimes: The Consequences of Prohibition" and "Libertarianism, from A to Z."
