Josh Hlavka is a libertarian activist known for his leadership roles within the Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF) and his candidacy for public office in Broward County, Florida.

Libertarian Party of Florida Leadership

Hlavka currently serves as the Chair of the LPF, a position he was elected to after his tenure as Vice Chair. His leadership within the LPF has been marked by a commitment to advancing libertarian principles and expanding the party's influence in the state of Florida.

Hlavka's tenure as Chair has been characterized by effective organizational skills and creative thinking, allowing the LPF to overcome challenges unique to minor political parties in a competitive and ever-changing political landscape. Hlavka's dedication to the LPF was endorsed by former LPF Chair Steven Nekhaila, who praised his ability to run meetings, organize effectively, and demonstrate his commitment to the cause of liberty. Nekhaila officially endorsed Josh Hlavka as the next Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida, citing his experience, vision, and drive to elevate the LPF to new heights.

Candidacy for Broward County House District 105

In 2023, Hlavka made his debut in electoral politics as a candidate for the Florida House of Representatives in House District 105. This district encompasses southern Broward County, an area known for its predominantly Democratic-leaning voter base. Hlavka presented himself as a political novice challenging the incumbent, Rep. Marie Woodson, who is seeking a third term representing the district. Woodson had previously been considered a possible successor to Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book, but she expressed her determination to continue her work in the House.

Hlavka's decision to run for office was motivated by his belief that the district had been offered limited political choices. He aimed to address a variety of issues, including reducing taxes, expanding school choice, and lowering property insurance. As an advocate for limited government, Hlavka also proposed ending the gas tax and emphasized his willingness to engage in bipartisan dialogue. His candidacy marks a unique opportunity for the Libertarian Party in Florida, as he would have been the only member of the party in the state legislature if elected.
