Friends of Steve Collett , the noted Libertarian activist, are commenting on his Facebook page that he has apparently passed away. If this is true it would be a great loss for the liberty movement. Reportedly he died at his home in Hermosa Beach, of unknown causes, after returning from the Reform Conference in Denver, which he blogged about just a couple days ago, here .
Collett ran for the 33rd District of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2012, garnering almost five thousand votes according to Smart Voter .
Collett was a CPA, with a Masters in Business Taxation from USC. He also completed a Masters in Public Policy, at UCLA, this year. He completed a B.A. in Business Administration at Colorado College in 1976 after graduating from Arcadia High School in 1972. He owned his own business, Collett and Company, since 1999. He often allowed his offices to be used by the liberty movement in Los Angeles.
