In the name of Greenwich free speech
October 27, 2019
The Greenwich Representative Town Meeting (RTM) is voting on a seemingly innocuous item this Monday (Item 3) that, if approved, will lead to a great deal of confusion and ethical risk with respect to how and when an RTM member — your elected representative at Town Hall — can express views and raise concerns on behalf of their district.

September 2, 2019
On this episode of The Open Mind, we're delighted to welcome Ed Lopez-Reyes to continue our discussion of the national popular vote movement with one of its most important grassroots advocates on the eastern seaboard. A Connecticut-based Republican strategist Lopez is chief consultant of Wolf and King Strategies and served on the Joint Intelligence Operations Center Europe Analytics Center in imagery and counterterrorism from 2002 through 2010. He also served on Utah Governor Jon Huntsman's 2012 New Hampshire presidential primary campaign steering committee and was National Co-chairman of Republicans for Johnson-Weld in 2016. A member of the National Guard in Connecticut, Lopez also returned from a month long training in Louisiana.
The Small State Shuffle
September 11, 2018
Opponents of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact often rely on red-herring arguments to defend the status quo. Chief among them is an objection I like to call the “small state shuffle”. The opposing argument goes something like this: ‘The Electoral College is there to protect the small states and most small state voters are Republican. Therefore, the current system is good for small states and by extension Republican candidates for president.’ When confronted with facts counter to this inaccurate narrative, they claim you are a shill for liberal Democrats.
A goal RTM members can agree on
January 12, 2018
The 2017 municipal election in Greenwich will be remembered for three things: underscoring ideological hues more apropos to presidential elections, its volume of candidates, and the national attention it beckoned. A challenge those of us who were elected to the Greenwich Representative Town Meeting (RTM) can universally agree on tackling: to amplify and optimize constituent outreach with renewed zeal.
The Conservative Alternative to a Carbon Tax
May 11, 2017
In politics, just like the stock market, one knows where the big money play is at any given time. For the past several months in D.C., the big money is behind a carbon tax scheme to address global warming. Whoever is writing the checks decided to rebrand the largest tax increase in the history of the United States as a “conservative” strategy.
Liberty Tour visits campus to advocate for Johnson: Governor Gary Johnson funds national tour, uses comedy to engage students
October 25, 2016
"The main reason that I chose to come on this tour and talk to millennials and talk to students all over the country is because in addition to being libertarian, I’m a realist,” Ed Lopez said. “And so, I sympathized a lot with one of Gary Johnson’s principles of good government. And that’s a principle of realism.”
New Republicans for Johnson/Weld super PAC has Massachusetts roots

The real mirage
May 11, 2015
Mark Drought's recent averring in these pages (May 1 column, "Libertarianism is a mirage") that U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is an unelectable presidential candidate overlooks two critical points voters should be aware of as we approach the 2016 election; particularly if we harbor hope for a constructive and meaningful outcome.

June 4, 2014

RI Republican Senate Caucus Supports Marriage Equality
April 23, 2013
Ed J. Lopez, a Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry leadership committee member who is National Vice Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, said: “Rhode Island Republicans are leading the way to a more inclusive GOP — one that can continue to grow and stay relevant as America changes. Their actions today show that not only do they know the freedom to marry is completely in line with conservative values like personal liberty and the importance of family, they are working to make it a reality.”
Huntsman 2012, New Hampshire – Working on the Campaign
October 24, 2012
Having lived briefly under Jon Huntsman’s tenure as Governor of Utah, and as someone who has a few things in common with the Governor – including his religious background, a life-shaping passion for rock music, and a conservative-but-libertarian-leaning, pragmatic approach to politics – I feel I was able to ponder what went wrong with the Governor’s presidential campaign from a fairly unique perspective; particularly as someone who served on the Jon Huntsman for President New Hampshire State Steering Committee.
The Libertarian Case for Jon Huntsman
December 2, 2011
Last May, when Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels was pondering a White House bid, Jason Sorens of the University of Buffalo wrote a commentary that went largely unnoticed. Wanting to “take a look at Jon Huntsman,” who has been “widely viewed as a ‘moderate’ Republican, but whose” policies “stake out a position that may be more libertarian than Daniels’,” Sorens concluded that after former Gov. Gary Johnson and Texas Congressman Ron Paul, Huntsman offered the most libertarian credentials — besting even Daniels.
N.H. Mormons hope GOP candidates raise awareness
August 1, 2011
Ed Lopez, president of Nashua Habitat for Humanity who joined the Mormon Church in college, said he believes Romney and Huntsman’s candidacies make a statement Mormonism has become more mainstream in American culture. “The church has become more acceptable to people,’’ he said. “People realize Latter-day Saints are people who work in the checkout at the supermarket, their neighbor, boss, the person running Jet Blue, or running Marriott Hotels.’’
