January 25, 2017 - By Gregory Peele, Treasurer

For those of you that have ever been given a ticket by an unconstitutional computer program and red-light camera, HB 6007 which will repeal Red Light Cameras will be heard in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at 1:00 PM.

This bill will improve traffic safety in Orange county by eliminating red light cameras, reducing collisions at intersections. Orlando, Apopka, Ocoee, and Winter Park are particularly notable for their excessive use of red light cameras.

Half of the fine goes to the state rather than the local government. A significant fraction of the remainder (over $3,000 per camera per month) is paid to an extremely well-connected private company ATS for maintenance and review - sometimes to the point of counties losing money! Why are we punishing Orange's working class to reward an Arizona company?

We ask that you call or email the committee members and ask them to pass this bill to the next stage as soon as possible.

We held the first business meeting of 2017 and accomplished a lot of housekeeping. We were honored to have Jim Turney, former chair of the Libertarian National Committee from 1985 through 1988, as our guest. Liberty lovers, come to our next business meeting on March 15th (ides of March) and take part in the movement to bring liberty to the Orange county, Florida masses.

Two amendments to our Constitution and By-Laws were approved to clarify the wording and intent of our mission, levels of membership, quorum, and public meeting notice requirements.

Please take note that our postal address has changed.

Please check out our new Chair's speech in the above video. Congratulations to Jonathan Scocco for his appointment to the Membership Committee, which now has taken on the responsibilities of the dissolved Events Committee.

Voting members for the next meeting should review the two sets of bylaws amendments proposed for a vote at our January 18 meeting: 

The proposed bylaws amendments regarding special elections was not approved for a vote due to issues raised during the discussion.
