Rules posted last night WILL NOT allow political pamphlets or campaign materials to be distributed at our poltical convention. We know this sounds a little contradictory, but it is what it is until amended.
There will also be "security" with orange arm bands to police security problems.
Current rules have been set up to allow committees appointed by one man to appoint all the delegates. The nominations committee elected to amend the 2010 state delegate list.
If you prefer to have the 2012 county convention delegates select the state delegates, then you will need to lobby to amend the rules to allow PRECINCT CAUCUSING. To be properly informed, please download the file entitled "Precinct Caucusing Amendment" at: http://www.meetup.com/centraltexasrlc/files.
Print out pages 1-4 for information on the amendment to show to or discuss with other convention delegates.
The remainder of the document contains forms that can be used to record the elected delegate slate for ALL the different precincts. Print out the page for your own precinct so its slate can be tabulated if the current rules are amended.
You can show these materials to others, but we recommend that you do not hand them out to avoid being charged as a "security problem".
