Paul was never very interested in politics until he took an economics class in 2015 and heard about Milton Friedman and for the first time heard about libertarianism. He listen to hours of content from FEE and the Mises Institute. Shortly he was hooked on the ideas of liberty, and motivated to share them with the world. In 2017 he was unsuccessful at unseating the long term Republican in his City Council district. In December of 2018 he became the County Chair for Bernalillo County. Paul is mainly interested in free-market economics and reducing the size and scope of government.

Jeremy Myers, Secretary
Jeremy Myers was born in Albuquerque and has lived most of his life in the Albuquerque area. He majored in history and minored in economics at UNM. He then earned a Masters in Computer Information Systems from the University of Phoenix. He has over 20 years experience as a Data/IT professional and currently works for Sandia National Laboratories in the Data Sciences Department. He discovered that he was philosophically a libertarian in 2010 while discussing politics with his younger brother who was already a Libertarian. After making that revelation, Jeremy began reading libertarian perspectives on philosophy, history, and economics, which resonated famously with him and provided the unifying theory that he had looked for in vain during his undergraduate studies. Suddenly, previously disjointed facts of history, economics, law and ethics were pulled together into a cohesive whole that answers some of the toughest questions and provides a clear path of action to attain peace and prosperity and fully respects individual rights and freedoms. The Mises and Cato Institutes were and continue to be some of his primary sources of inspiration and education.
