The LPWV is excited to hold our first Awards and Recognition Ceremony at this years convention. This is our opportunity to recognize the individuals who have gone above and beyond to advance the Libertarian Party in West Virginia.
We are introducing the Dr. Wallace Johnson Flame of Liberty Award! This award is being presented to any Gubernatorial Candidate that achieves, or maintains, Major Party Status for the Libertarian Party in West Virginia. This award is in the memory of Dr. Wallace Johnson, the first Libertarian Gubernatorial Candidate to meet the statutory requirements to gain Major Party status for the Libertarian Party in the Mountain State!
