Jason Melehani, 25, of Durham, was appointed executive director of the Libertarian Party of North Carolina. He will be the principal administrative assistant to the state chair, and oversee all the party's programs and fundraising activities.
Melehani "I'm proud to accept this responsibility, because I believe North Carolinians are ready for a new option, one that respects individual liberty and supports personal responsibility on all issue, all the time, and puts people before politics," said Melehani.
"Young people across North Carolina are beginning to realize that they are paying a disproportionately high price for irresponsible governing of decades past," he said.

“The threat technological advancements pose to job security has been used as justification for stifling advancements for centuries,†said Jason Melehani.
“Imagine all the jobs we could create if we banned electronic printing of books or banned computers from automating manufacturing processes.â€
“These obviously are backwards ideas,†he said. “The ban on direct auto sales in SB 327 (Clarify Motor Vehicle Licensing Law) is backwards as well.â€
Melehani is also an at-large member of the state Libertarian Party executive committee. He is a student in the combined MD/PhD program at UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine.
Last week, the state Senate unanimously approved the bill which would ban direct auto sales to consumers by companies like Tesla Motors under the premise that it threatened the jobs of thousands who work at auto dealerships.
“I suspect the North Carolina Auto Dealership Association played a major role in bringing both parties together to pass this protectionist legislation,†Melehani said.
Melehani said that if enacted into law the bill will stifle innovation and hurt consumers by preventing competition and thus increasing cost.
“The NC Senate clearly lacks an understanding of opportunity costs,†he explained “When consumers are forced to pay more for a good, they ultimately can afford less of that good and others too.â€
Melehani recounted a famous story told about noted economist Milton Friedman.
