Mike Wherry Attends Charlestown Founder's Day Festival

Libertarian Party nominee for Secretary of State Mike Wherry traveled to Charlestown, Indiana, this past Saturday, June 26, to attend the Founder’s Day Festival.  The festival is an annual event in Charlestown with events which include a parade and a talent show.

Wherry spent time at the booth run by Greg Hertzsch, the Libertarian Party’s Ninth District representative to the State Central Committee.  Hertzsch and Wherry were handing out literature and running an Operation Politically Homeless (OPH) booth.  “OPH booths are an effective and fun way to interact with the public and spread our message of freedom and liberty,” says Hertzsch.  Passers-by are invited to take the World’s Smallest Political Quiz and the results are posted on a large chart at the booth.

“It’s a lot of fun to work these booths and the various events and festivals,” says Wherry.  “A lot of people realize that their beliefs are consistent with libertarianism.  Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting the word out to people who may not realize that there are more choices than left and right.  We have success talking to Republicans, Democrats and independents.”

“We had some good developments and passed out a bunch of literature to people who expressed interest,” continues Hertzsch.  “[Many] agreed that we have much in common and will join us in monthly meetups.”
