Caryn Ann Harlos became a Libertarian in 2014 during a fortuitous visit to LP.org while reading the Party’s Platform and its Statement of Principles. Since that time, she has risen to prominence through a nearly endless stream of exuberance and work ethic. Amongst other positions she has served as the Communications Director and Secretary for the Libertarian Party of Colorado, Region 1 Representative for the Libertarian National Committee (representing nine western states), Libertarian Party Historical Preservation Committee Chair, and Chair of the National Platform Committee for the 2018 and 2020 conventions. Her particular interest is in Party history and its Statement of Principles and has been a featured speaker on those topics across the country. In 2018, she was elected as the Party Secretary on a platform of transparency, accountability, and accessibility, and was wrongfully suspended in 2021 in retaliation for calling out corruption and lack of backbone in the LP leadership to face down the COVID regime.
