A new party convention & other indy news
LIV does not endorse any political party. We work with members of all of them. But, like most Texans of all persuasions, we do want more electoral competition.
A delegation of us will be attending the kick off convention of the new Forward Party this Saturday in Houston from 1 to 7 pm.
LIV will also have a booth at this event. Give us a ring for more information on our plans. This FREE event still has some seats left. More here.
