Unknown as a of now. From LP Chair Nick Sarwark

The world is a darker place this morning. We have lost one of the lights of the Libertarian Party (https://www.facebook.com/libertarians/), Dr. Marc Allan Feldman (https://www.facebook.com/marc.a.feldman). My deepest condolences go out to his family on their loss.

I had the privilege of working with Dr. Feldman on the Libertarian National Committee. After growing up in Washington, D.C., cynical about politics and politicians, he spent most of his adult life not even voting.

In the Libertarian Party (https://www.facebook.com/libertarians/), he found a politics of empowering people to be their best selves, free from the control of governments and bureaucrats. It spoke to him in a way that awakened something. He was tireless and dedicated to sharing that vision with everyone he met, but most importantly, with those who didn't participate, didn't vote, and didn't have a voice.

Special interests and the well connected already had a voice in politics. Dr. Feldman was committed to giving a voice to that vast majority who were voiceless. So committed, that he confided in me in 2015 that he wanted to run for President.

Knowing that he was relatively unknown in the party, I told him he would have an uphill battle against the likes of Gary Johnson (https://www.facebook.com/govgaryjohnson/). My advice didn't matter, because Dr. Marc Allan Feldman (https://www.facebook.com/ThatLibertarian/) was fearless. He ran a race that we all could be proud of, unconstrained by the traditional rules of politics. His competitors and his party were made better for it.

I will miss Marc Feldman. I will miss his dedication to the Libertarian Party (https://www.facebook.com/libertarians/), his voice on the Libertarian National Committee, and his unique and optimistic way of approaching politics.

Most of all, I will miss a friend.

Really sorry to hear this. I found his speeches at the LP convention funny and inspiring. No doubt he'll be greatly missed by many.

He was a member here, sorry to hear he passed. :(

This was a nice mention in a prominent national politics journal.
It just led to interviews with the Cleveland Jewish Week and Cleveland Magazine.
They are more interested in my personal story than in my proposals to get big money out of political campaigns, balance the budget, and shrink government.
I guess that's just mainstream media.
