In NYS, I assisted in choosing our RP slated delegates that were submitted to the NY board of elections for validation.
One person was selected by the campaign to choose the delegates for the whole state but he decided to divide that responsibility. He divided NYS into three section and contacted a person in each who would therefore choose the delegates from their respected area.
I assisted that original state coordinator. We discussed what we were looking for in a delegate.
So when you say "so what" concerning favoritism and grudges, I don't agree. I had to put aside knowledge of some people and be fair in the selection process. That was not easy to do.
Were those who submitted their requests to be considered for delegates get personal phone interviews like we did in the selection process?
