Brian McQuade was born and raised in Salem County, New Jersey. Through tireless hours of video gaming, watching Star Wars and living life the way he damn well pleases (so long as it wasn’t infringing upon the rights of others), he’s honed his skills to become the Libertarian Jedi.
Brian has served as the Membership Director for the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire since September of 2016. Brian was also the driving force behind the creation of the Libertarian Party of the Seacoast New Hampshire, New Hampshire’s first active regional affiliate to the LPNH in years, and serves as the Chair of that affiliate. Brian has worked for the Department of State for a decade and has received the Franklin award, the department’s highest award given out for recognition.
Brian lives in Milton, NH with his family, an awesome wife named Tania, a dog named Kasey and two cats named Salem & Mara. Brian has been a genealogist for 20 years. In his spare time, which is rare these days, he enjoys playing the violin, baking and watching Star Wars.
Rodger is a long-time libertarian activist, the founder of PaxLibertas Productions, host of The LAVA Flow podcast, Vice Chairman of the LPNH, Regional Captain for the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence and former Chairman and Secretary of the Libertarian Party of Arkansas. Rodger has also served on the national Libertarian Party Judicial Committee.
In 2015, seeking to find “liberty in his lifetime,” Rodger and his family moved 1,500 miles from Arkansas to New Hampshire to join the Free State Project, joining the exclusive ranks of nearly 2,000 “early movers” who made the decision to move prior to the Free State Project receiving it’s first 20,000 signatures. Rodger and his wife Jessica also unschool their children at home. They believe these two activities are among the most important activities you can do for liberty.
Rodger’s earliest memory is of seeing C-3PO and R2-D2 on the big screen when he was about 2 years old. His life goal now is to instill in his two boys a love of Star Wars and liberty.
