Email From MN C4L Co-ordinator - Good InfoSubmitted by Anisha on Mon, 02/01/2010 - 14:19
Dear Minnesota C4L Member,
Thank you for all that you have done and will do for liberty.
We need you to once again get involved in the political process at your local Caucus this Tuesday, Feb 2, 2010. It does not matter whether you caucus as a Republican, a Democrat, or with another Party. It is crucially important that you go and become a Delegate or an Alternate to the next level.
On the GOP side, you have made tremendous strides, with many members having been elected to local and congressional district leadership. At the last State Central meeting, a resolution to bind the party to financially support Conservatives written by Campaign for Liberty member Greg O'Connor was approved by a majority vote. That resolution has already sent shock waves through the GOP leadership. We need more of you to become leaders like Greg in each of Minnesota's political parties, and that requires you getting elected delegate at the Caucus Tuesday night and then at the county or senate district level.
Basically, four things happen at your local precinct Caucus:
(1.) Election of precinct leadership for the next two years;
(2.) Election of Delegates to your local BPOU (county or senate district) Convention to be held in February and March. (Delegates at the BPOU Convention, in turn, elect Delegates to the congressional district conventions and the State Convention, where candidates for governor and other offices are endorsed);
(3.) Submit resolutions to be voted upon (after debate) at your local (BPOU) Convention. Similar resolutions will be combined from across the state, and their adoption into the party platform will be voted upon at the state convention.
(4) Vote in a straw poll, which will be reported to the media, for your choice of governor.
We encourage you to propose platform planks at your Caucus, then County, District, and State Conventions. You can find some good ideas that represent the C4L mission statement at: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/pdfs/talkingpoints.pdf
Also, visit the MN section of the C4L Forums to see what others are submitting for resolutions: (http://www.campaignforliberty.com/forums/?state=MN)
If you are not sure where your Caucus location is, go to the following site and enter your mailing address in the "Caucus Finder." It will tell you your precinct designation and where your Caucus will be held for each Party. http://www.sos.state.mn.us/index.aspx?page=886
Remember, Caucus this Tuesday night, February 2, 2010 - 7PM. We need you there!
