The leadership of the California National Party would like to thank Louis Marinelli for his years of hard work on behalf of the Californian independence movement. His optimism and energy for the cause of Californian independence will be missed.
Like almost half of Californians, Louis was born elsewhere but made our great nation home for many years. While here he thrust himself into the forefront of the campaign for independence, first with Sovereign California, along with other early leaders, then with the rebranded Yes California, and this year as an independent candidate for the California Assembly from district 80 in San Diego.
While his decision to move abroad precludes any future leadership or spokesperson role with the CNP, we wish him well both in his personal life and his other political endeavors.
Statement approved by unanimous consent of the CNP executive committee, Sept. 19, 2016.
