Manhattan Chapter Chair Ron Litchman said, “New York’s Libertarians have fielded a slate of candidates who see – as incumbents and career candidates never do — where a smaller, smarter, more efficient, less regulatory, less burdensome City government can better serve the needs of New Yorkers, while restoring respect for their personal freedom and their individual responsibility.

           “Our candidates, and our party, will carry this positive, issues-oriented, solution-based campaign to our fellow New Yorkers, and show them what effective City government can be, a City government that, for once, New Yorkers can be proud of.”



The Manhattan Libertarian Party campaigns for smaller, limited government, restrained fiscal policy, personal choice and individual responsibility, tolerance, and a disciplined foreign policy.
