There were no seats available in my county district. All the other county districtss had open seats. One county district had all the seats open, but mine was full. So I continued to go, and I took my own role call, And then when someone missed three consecutive meetings, I asked to replace them. The Chair got so mad at me after I had gone after every seat but his, he said, "Maybe I should resign and you can be the Chair?" I said, ""sure, I'd be happy to be Chair, but right now, I'm just trying to get a seat legitimately. These folks don't care to show up, it's not my fault." That's when he admitted a conspiracy against me... well, the next meeting, I got a seat.
Of course in the meantime, I had petitioned and qualified for a seat, but I don't come into my elected seat until January. So I'm seated 7 months before my actual seat opens. And what's better, is that my diligence, fortitude, determination, consistance, respect, is paying off. They like me more than Ron Paul.. now there's a twist, eh?
I sure wish I had folks on my committee who were Ron Paul Republicans. The more the merrier. Show up aa a guest and be counted. Maybe you'll help inspire them to vet Ron Paul issues and candidates... a little pressure wouldn't hurt, as you never know who might suddenly drop off leaving you with a seat!
God Bless You!
