Melanie and Richard Gibson

Melanie and Richard Gibson

Liberty Forum 2018 Producers

This powerhouse couple created a fantastic schedule of events for Liberty Forum 2017, connecting attendees and speakers like never before. Ten years ago, Melanie and Richard visited New Hampshire for the first time to attend the 2007 Liberty Forum. While driving around, experiencing the winter, they decided that New Hampshire was the right place for their family. So in 2011, they sold their house and made the move. After settling into small town life with their two children, they volunteered to coordinate the kids program at PorcFest 2014. They created an amazing program for the largest turnout of children PorcFest had ever hosted. Then in July 2017, they were part of the volunteer team that coordinated the NHLA Liberty Dinner.

Rodger and Jessica Paxton

Rodger and Jessica Paxton

PorcFest 2018 Producers

Rodger, Jessica, and their family live just north of New Hampshire’s beautiful Seacoast. They enjoy being surrounded by a supportive group of unschooling, peaceful parenting, entrepreneurial-minded Freecoasters. As long time liberty activists, they each served in various roles within the Libertarian Party of Arkansas before moving to the Free State. In 2016, the Paxtons organized and ran the Main Pavilion at PorcFest, and were members of the Freecoast Festival production team in 2016 and 2017. Rodger serves on the Board of Directors for the Free State Project. Jessica is an unschooling mom of two boys who keep her busy exploring all that New Hampshire has to offer. She considers herself a “professional volunteer,” and enjoys organizing political events of all kinds, from press conferences to protests to PorcFest.
