It is with great sadness that we report that Doug McNeil, a long time Libertarian and tireless advocate for improved ballot access and libertarian ideals, passed away on April 2, 2016. Doug was running for Mayor of Baltimore as the Libertarian candidate. A more detailed article about Doug and his impact in Maryland politics will be forthcoming.
Doug passed away from cancer and his death was noted by Richard Winger’s Ballot Access News. We offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.
