That's it way it works here

I was elected.

First, I attended meetings as a guest (pest) for a year. I didn't miss a meeting, took my own roll call, questioned them. When the time came, I petitioned as a Ron Paul Republican, no thanks to them, I qualified, no one ran against me, so I won by default. My elected seat starts in January. In the mean time, since I always show up, and I kept asking to remove those who missed three consecutive meetings and for me to be appointed in their place, they apponted me a seat. Now they hold me to the by-laws, but I am no longer alone, as there are empty seats in other county districts, and those are being filled Ron Paul GOP, and Palin Earthquakers..

Here's the thing.. during the primarys, the number of people who registered GOP increased our seats.. we gained 5. I bet your area gained seats too. I was an Indy, so I didn't have to wait out the time penalty for switching parties as you may, but the thing is, they can not stop you from attending as a guest/ or asking questions, and while you don't get to vote, you can contribute to the debates on issues.

My only regret was to not to do this in 07.

If you were in my area, I would be thrilled to see you show up.
