They are Vance Lowry, who was also re-elected as the party's county chairman; Allen Weatherford; Sherri Little; and Criss Bartley (who was absent due to another commitment.)
That group constituted all but one of the five delegates who attended the county convention (Billy Joe Roberts was the other.) Those five were automatically named delegates to the county gathering by attending the precinct convention three days earlier.
Upshur was allotted up to four delegates to the state Libertarian convention.
The Upshur Libertarians held their precinct and county conventions at the Buckeye Diner. The party's district convention (for Texas Senate District One) is scheduled in Tyler Saturday, while the state convention is set June 8-10 in Dallas.
The Libertarian Party chooses its nominees for public office by conventions rather than primary elections, such as the two major parties hold. While no Libertarian is seeking an Upshur County office this year, as four did in 2010, Ms. Little is unopposed for her party's nomination for the District 9 seat on the State Board of Education.
At Saturday's county convention, Lowry criticized Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum because he "declared war on pornography...(He) thinks the government ought to get involved in this kind of thing."
Lowry complained that Republicans and Democrats believe in the state's power to "regulate personal moral issues" when "the purpose of government is to defend individual liberty." The Libertarian chairman said it is "impossible to regulate" personal morality.
He accused Santorum of wanting to propose "the Christian version of the Taliban."
Lowry also said nobody at the convention favored pornography, and that his support for leaving it unregulated is when it involves consenting adults.
