Carla Howell is the Political Director for the National Libertarian Party. Prior to taking the job at the party’s Washington D.C. headquarters, Carla championed three statewide ballot initiatives in Massachusetts to cut taxes: Two to End the Income Tax in 2002 and 2008, which was endorsed by the Wall Street Journal, Steve Forbes and the National Taxpayers Union. Another in 2010 was to roll back the Massachusetts sales tax over 3 percentage points. Each initiative won almost one million votes.
The first initiative shocked the political establishment of Massachusetts, winning nearly half of the vote. The last two initiatives were ahead in the polls prior to the airing of millions of dollars in opposition advertising. Her initiatives forced the Teachers Union and other allies of Big Government to spend $12,000,000 just to keep taxes from going down.
Carla Howell won 308,860 votes in her Libertarian U.S. Senate race against Ted Kennedy in 2000. It was the highest vote percentage ever for a Libertarian in a U.S. Senate race against a Democrat and Republican.
She opposed and debated Mitt Romney along with high-profile Democrats including Robert Reich in her 2002 run for Governor of Massachusetts.
She has consulted for dozens of initiatives and campaigns at the local, state and federal level and organized the 2009 Small Government Summit which trained candidates and activists how to formulate and sell liberty proposals with broad appeal to voters.
