DCDP Executive Committee Meeting Jan. 10
The Dallas County Democratic Party Executive Committee will meet on Thursday, January 10, 2008, at 6:30 PM, at the Communications Workers of America hall, at 1408 North Washington Street, Dallas. The committee, essentially the board of directors of the local party, consists of the County Chair and Secretary and the Precinct Chairs. Others are free to attend, but cannot vote.
At this meeting candidates (or their representatives) will draw for county ballot positions for contested Primary races (including statewide ones). Since the meeting for this is required by law, a quorum does not even need to be present. However, Precinct Chairs should all attend anyway, because after that we will be breaking into caucuses for business related to next spring's Senatorial District Conventions.
The Chairs from each district will elect Temporary Chairs for their Senatorial Conventions, who will then organize those meetings. Especially in a year with a contested nomination for President, it is important to make sure each district elects a person both competent and fair to this position. Check with your own SDEC members or with the party office for more information.
