Nevada Reconvene Convention - June 28Submitted by Paulette on Tue, 06/03/2008 - 14:10
Another poster on ronpaulforums asked what could be done to help this effort to reconvene. Here's what I suggested, along with an update on a news broadcast I heard on the radio this morning, June 3:
If you go to nevada4ronpaul.com you will find a chip-in to help with the expenses. You could email NV GOP headquarters firstname.lastname@example.org and urge them to work to get this June 28th date publicized and officially attended, Also would help for them to release the official delegate's list from April 26th. These actions would be very beneficial to the party's credibility. Another thought, email to Bob Beers email@example.com and ask him to pick up the gavel on June 28th. There is no reason not to be firm, giving positive reasons to reconvene, while remaining respectful.
I heard this morning on KKOH radio the following: The "takeover group" might have a sanctioning problem because only certain people can call the meeting to order and none of those people are involved with the Ron Paul movement who are setting up the June 28 reconvenence. Bob Beers says: “good luck with that. We are not even sure that NV GOP can get together a quorum for the reconvening we are planning and may have to call for a mail-in ballot.”
If Bob Beers does not pick up that gavel on June 28th, so far as I am concerned, he is done in this State. I really think the true villian is the RNC in DC and Sue Lowden and other Las Vegas leadership, but if Bob Beers can't fulfill his duties as chairman when people gather, then now can he lead elsewhere? Does anyone know how we can check on who can legally (not that they bother with legalities unless it suit them) pick up the gavel and call the meeting to order. I was thinking it might be any NV Republican congressman, senator, or Party officer, but a quick run through the various rules, didn't reveal it to me. Dean Heller, Congressman from NV, has stated his eagerness to proceed, even when others are silent, so I've written to him saying he'd be "the people's hero" if he stepped up. Hmmmmmm?
