Robert Burke of the town of Hudson enjoys an exchange of ideas with caucus members about the new Libertarian Party and how to build the party's infrastructure so it becomes credible with area voters. Burke, 43, was laid off last year as a financial services wholesaler with Genworth Financial. He is now a stay-at-home dad with two daughters, ages 10 and 12. His wife, Sandy (Kerr) Burke, graduated from UW-River Falls in 1997 and teaches English at Hudson High School.
