Convention Chaos in Forsyth County GeorgiaSubmitted by pettyphy on Sat, 03/10/2012 - 21:42
I just returned from the County Convention in Forsyth County Georgia. Seems the Nominating committee for delegates and alternates made a HUGE mistake in that they chose delegates and alternates for districts that had new district lines drawn for the year 2013.They said that I was an alternate for district 9 but then disqualified me because I would be living in district 7 in Jan. 1 2013. This was all decided during the time votes were taken to accept the slate of delegates. One precinct in the county also had split district lines for 2013 and was able to elect delegates to fill the alternate slots for misalloted alternates that were wiped from the slate.When I tried to stop the vote for
the 9th district until the delegate /alternate District/precinct issue had been resolved............I was told I was out of order.....In other words.........They broke their own rules. This should be sent to the Georgia State GOP and investigated.
