He is a former state party chair and has also served as chair of the state Platform Committee on numerous occasions.
"Ted Brown was elected chair in May 2015 for a two year term. He has been active in the LP since 1979. He is an insurance claims adjuster and small business owner who lives in Pasadena with his wife Laura. They have an adult daughter named Katie. Ted has recruited Libertarian candidates for many years and has run 15 times himself.
