The Libertarian Party of Arapahoe County (LPAC) Board of Directors determine the course of our affiliate. Since our organization is a Political Party Committee, registered with the State of Colorado, we are able to accept donations. Business meetings focus on fundraising, candidate cultivation, outreach development, and other functions needed to grow the Libertarian Party. Arapahoe County residents, who are also members of the Libertarian Party, are eligible to vote at LPAC meetings. If you are eligible to vote at LPAC meetings, and have donated $20 or more in any calendar year, you may vote on issues that require LPAC to spend money.

Outreach Director - Blake Magnus
Blake Magnus is from the Upstate of South Carolina. He was exposed to Libertarian ideals working as a volunteer for the Ron Paul campaign in 2007 when he was only 15. Blake became a member of the Libertarian Party in 2010 and ran as a candidate for town council in Central, SC when he was 19. Lured to Colorado in 2014 for a visit, he fell in love with the wonderful people and natural beauty of this state. He now works as a salesman for Colorado's largest hot sauce company.
Membership Director - Paul Langford
Paul retired from a career in the United States Air Force in Colorado Springs. After being stationed abroad and various places around the US, he decided Colorado was the place he wanted to live. The formation of larger government and crazy spending drove Langford from the Republican Party, where he discovered he never fit with the R's at all. He became a registered Libertarian in 2004.
