The Libertarian Party of Broward County is a local affiliate of the Libertarian Party of Florida. We represent more than 1,600 registered voters in the region. We believe in individual liberty, free markets and limited government. Our Executive Committee is composed of Precinct Committee Persons who vote for Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary at the Annual Organizational Meeting every year. They also meet
bi-monthly to decide the direction of our party. We put on many events open to the public including a monthly Liberty Happy Hour, including a presentation and social hour intended to reach out to our local community and share our political philosophy.
Chairman – Michael Smith
In 2013 Michael J. Smith, after hearing about Libertarianism for the first time from a friend, registered as a Libertarian and became a proud and active member of the Libertarian Party. Realizing he had been a Libertarian his whole life but just didn’t know it, his focus is on educating people on Libertarianism and growing the Party with the goal of Liberty having a voice in State, Federal, and local governments.
Vice Chairwoman – Diona Kozma
The 2016 Presidential Election was the time when Diona M Kozma finally realized she’d had enough of “Lesser of Two Evils” candidates. She vowed to no longer vote for a candidate just to make sure “the other guy/girl” didn’t win. That’s when she finally registered as a Libertarian and didn’t look back.
Shawn Lux – Secretary
Shawn became interested in the libertarian movement during the 2016 election when Rand Paul was running on the Republican ticket in the primary. It sparked his interest in the liberty movement and after researching the party platform and attending the Liberty Happy Hours I joined the party in 2018.
Treasurer – Frank Montes
Frank was born a libertarian but was not aware of it until he was introduced to Lock and Hume in High School. He was, and still is, fascinated by the societal implications that everyone should have free choice and what that would mean. He is taken aback by statements like “she was given the right to…” as he see rights as being part of the nature of human beings and not something given to them. He believes Libertarianism is the only morally justifiable system of political thought.
