Gregory "Greg" Krikor Dirasian (March 7, 1959–April 14, 2022) was a Libertarian activist in Michigan. He moved to Michigan in the late 1990s and immediately became a driving force in the party both at the state level and in the Libertarian Party of Oakland County.
After the Libertarian Party of Michigan lost ballot access in 2000, Dirasian played a major role in the Ballot Access Restoration Committee, which successfully restored ballot access in 2001. That same year, he became the editor of the Michigan Libertarian newsletter and made each issue available electronically for the first time.
Dirasian served on the Libertarian Party of Michigan Executive Committee from 2001-2002 and again from 2005-2006. He was also an officer of the Libertarian Party of Oakland County from 1999-2005.
Managing Professional Campaigns
Dirasian, Fred Collins, and Barb Goushaw-Collins formed the LPM Troika, which managed several successful city council elections: Fred Collins in Berkley, Martin Howrylak and David Eisenbacher in Troy, Erin Stahl in St. Clair Shores, and Andy LeCureaux in Hazel Park.
Dirasian later helped establish the Small Government Alliance PAC with former LPM Executive Director Tim O’Brien.
