The newly formed Niagara County Libertarian Party Committee will hear a speech by Larry Sharpe, the party's 2018 candidate for governor, in a public meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday in the Gratwick Hose Company hall, 110 Ward Road, North Tonawanda.
Last year, Sharpe, a Queens resident, polled more than 95,000 votes in the gubernatorial election, or 1.6 percent of the total. That was enough to qualify the Libertarians for an automatic line on New York ballots for the first time ever.
Charles J. Flynn of Wilson was elected Saturday as the chairman of the Libertarian county committee. Nick Phelps and Francis Law are the vice chairmen; Kathleen Ligammari, secretary; and Brian Owczarzak, treasurer.
