About: Melinda was the first County Chair of the Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County, Southern California Vice-Chair for the Libertarian Party of California for six terms and ran an office for Southern California on Westwood Blvd. in Westwood for four years. No dues money was used to fund the office, which was paid for by voluntary support of activists. When it was clear the LP was having issues with the challenge of success I left and re-registered Republican to learn how a political party which won elections worked from the inside.
Surprise. It had been the women, most through the National Federation of Republican Women, who did the work. I joined, having been impressed by their sense of community and success rate. Then Melinda again moved on to other ventures, one of which is Freedom Interactive TV Networks Association.
