Liberty Iowa Announces Leadership Change as 2016 Campaign Season Begins
New Executive Director Seeks to Engage, Educate and Empower Iowans to Take Back Control of Their Government.
DES MOINES – A leadership change at Liberty Iowa came upon the announcement that current Executive Director, Adil Khan, accepted a position on presidential candidate Rand Paul’s Technology Advisory Council. Khan joins a distinguished group on Paul’s council, including Google’s (Public Sector) Chief Technology Officer, Michele Weslander Quaid; CEO of Overstock.com, Patrick Byrne; Scott Banister of PayPal fame and other thought leaders in the tech world.
“I’m honored to be chosen for Senator Paul’s Tech Council and also very excited about the incoming Executive Director at Liberty Iowa, Andy Curran. Andy has a proven track record of making state government more transparent and accessible to the citizens of Iowa, exactly what is necessary to give the power of government back to the people,” said Khan.
Khan’s successor at Liberty Iowa, Andy Curran, is also no stranger to innovating government with technology. Curran is a co-founder of a non-partisan civic based social network, WeVoteProject.org, which specializes in engaging, educating and empowering voters through legislative transparency and providing direct lines of communication between citizens and their representatives in Des Moines.
“I am thrilled and humbled to be asked to become the next Executive Director of Liberty Iowa. Adil Khan has definitely set a high bar for excellence in advancing liberty here in Iowa and I will do all I can to build on it,” Curran said.
Curran will take over as Executive Director of Liberty Iowa effective immediately.
About Liberty Iowa
Liberty Iowa was formed with the goal of empowering liberty minded voters in Iowa to take control of their government once again. We believe that the status quo in Des Moines politics favors insiders and large political donors while average Iowans are largely removed from the legislative process. We believe that a peaceful and prosperous Iowa is one that maximizes both economic and civil liberties.
With this in mind, Liberty Iowa aims to return our state to the principles of limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty, and to make Iowa an example for the rest of the nation.
