Oregon Republican Party will hold an Executive Board Meeting Saturday to appoint alternate delegates - open to publicSubmitted by Jinn on Fri, 06/29/2012 - 04:35
Oregon Republican Party will hold an Executive Board Meeting where they will appoint the alternates. From what I understand, this meeting will be at 12:00 at 2225 Coburg Road in Eugene on Saturday. I was told this meeting was open to the public. Please do confirm the time and location of this meeting yourself.
They are not reconvening the Oregon conventions, and may or may not take the votes of the PCPs who did vote (who were just elected at the Oregon Primary) in to consideration while making these appointments.
This meeting is open to the public for (silent) observation. The jurisdiction of this meeting is all Oregon Republicans.
Oregon Conventions last weekend shut down @5pm before alternates could be elected, CD4 and several others voted to continue & did elect (after recovering ballots)
CD4 vote tallys based on announced totals from clerk (unofficial):
although official results are not released yet, i have heard that the executive board appointed alternate delegates that differ from the slate of duly elected delegates elected by the elected PCPs of Oregon at last Saturday's conventions. I will update with official results when I get them, and any information I can get about who exactly voted how.
Russ Walker from Freedom Works was supporting Solomon Yue & his position (that the board has the authority to make the appointments due to invalid information about 'you need 2/3 majority to move to extend the agenda, that's how its always been', out in the parking lot during this meeting.
Actually, Mr Walker and Committeeman Yue, Allen Alley has only the powers granted to him by the ORP bylaws and convention rules. which, while giving Chairman Alley the authority to set a time to CONVENE the convention, does not give him the authority to set a time for adjournment for the convention. There is also NOT A SINGLE RULE about lockstep votes between CDs being necessary. The rule of law has been violated and the ORP Exec Board is usurping the authority of the elected PCPs. This position is also held by a common law advocate from project city hall, and the Lane County Secretary/Board Counsel.
Justice will prevail when the credentials of these newly appointed delegates fail to withstand scrutiny under challenge.
Sad PCPs and Delgates, holding signs at the Executive board meeting.
