Going to District!Submitted by LLPH on Mon, 03/05/2012 - 00:18
Got elected at my county convention yesterday and I'm going on the the next level! I just had to go somewhere and toot my own horn because I worked really hard (made flyers to pass out, attended extra meetings in order to meet people, researched Roberts Rules for hours, attended an adjacent county's convention a week prior so I could know what to expect)Other than my sister's boyfriend (who also got elected in his county and will be going on to to the same district convention) I don't really have too many hardcore RP supporters in my life to report the good news to. So I'm reporting it here!
We got 4 known RP delegates out of 16, but honestly this county has a VERY tight knit group of Repubs who have been around a long time and so it was not an easy convention to squeeze your way into. The top top nine as far as votes go were all 'lifers' and I came in 10th for votes. I even beat out a guy who was pretty close to running for state legislature this year, but ended up deciding to wait because of redistricting, haha!
Anyway, that's all. Just a lot of hard work with a great payoff and not enough people to share it with!
Keep plodding along people, we WILL make a difference.
