Caleb Q. Dyer
Caleb Q. Dyer is a commercial graphic designer from Pelham, New Hampshire. In 2016, he ran as a Republican for State Representative and was seated for the following session. In early 2017, Rep. Dyer left the Republican Party for the Libertarian Party, becoming the first sitting Libertarian Representative in New Hampshire since 2002. In that same year he was joined by two other Representatives: Joseph Stallcop, a former Democrat of Keene, and Brandon Phinney a Republican of Rochester. The three officially re-established the House Libertarian Caucus. Rep. Dyer was the inaugural Secretary for the Southern New Hampshire Libertarian Party, one of the first county affiliates for Hillsborough and Merrimack counties.
At the 2018 Libertarian Party of New Hampshire convention Rep. Dyer was elected Secretary of the state party as well as a delegate to the national convention. While serving as a representative he has brought a very radical message of human liberty through public policy. He has sponsored bills to reduce criminal penalties for controlled substances and legalize cannabis, reduce and eliminate occupational licensing violation penalties, enact approval voting for state general elections, provide for voters to register as members of minor political parties, and amend the state Constitution to prohibit secret sessions of the legislature. He firmly believes that a radical, principled abolitionist philosophy can be communicated to voters in a new and unique way: by demonstrating how reducing the state’s monopoly on lawful force and violence leads to a more peaceful, voluntary, and cooperative society.
