Portland, OR - July 5, 2006 - On the closing day of the recent Libertarian National Convention held in Portland, Oregon, William Redpath was elected to the Libertarian Party's top post, receiving 64% of votes of the attending delegates. 

Libertarian Party Executive Director Shane Cory stated, "We are extremely pleased to have Bill Redpath as our new Chair.  Bill will continue the work that has been started in recent months that will help the Libertarian Party gain traction in the political arena.  The headquarters staff and I are eager to start our work with the Chair, along with the other members of the LNC who volunteer their time, money and energy to the Libertarian Party."     

Bill Redpath was born and raised in Findlay, Ohio.  He received his BA in Economics and Political Science from Indiana University (1978) and his MBA from the Graduate School of Business at The University of Chicago (1980).

Bill is a Vice President of Consulting for BIA Financial Network, Inc., a financial consulting and valuation firm that specializes in the appraisal of broadcasting, cable, and telecommunications properties.  Prior to joining BIA in 1985, he was a Senior Financial Analyst with NBC in New York.  He is a Certified Public Accountant, a Chartered Financial Analyst, an Accredited Senior Appraiser in Business Valuation in the American Society of Appraisers and holds the Accredited in Business Valuation designation from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

The new Chairman of the Libertarian Party has been a member since 1984 and has achieved a distinguished record of service and accomplishment.  He recently completed a term as an at-large member of the Libertarian National Committee and continues as the Ballot Access Project manager for the LNC.  He has served as Treasurer for the Libertarian Party on two occasions (1991-1993 and 2003-2004). He also serves as the treasurer for FairVote, a non-profit organization that seeks electoral reform in the United States.

In 2001, Bill became the first Libertarian candidate for Governor in the Commonwealth of Virginia.   Redpath has also run for the Virginia House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate, and has served as Chairman, Vice Chairman and Treasurer of the Libertarian Party of Virginia.

Bill Redpath is perhaps best known for his work on ballot access.  He served as chairman of the Ballot Access Committee of the LP from 1990 to 1997.   In 1992 and 1996, the Libertarian Party presidential ticket was on all U.S. ballots. This marked the first time in U.S. history that a "minor" political party placed its presidential ticket on the ballot in all states in successive presidential elections.  He returned as Ballot Access Project manager in 2003 and led the effort that placed the LP presidential ticket on the ballot in 48 states and the District of Columbia in 2004.

Redpath and his wife, Melinda Moore, live in Leesburg, Virginia.
