If you're not already a ballot candidate, are you interested in being a CD-14 write-in Alternate Delegate
candidate to the Republican National Convention to debate/convince others to support Ron Paul? This is very important as the RNC will likely be brokered (where all may vote as they wish). If so interested, let Andy know ASAP; you'll either need to prepare a short 5-minute presentation for this meeting or send to Andy (AndyMaul -at- yahoo.com) no later than Tuesday at noon a 250 word (1 page) maximum essay to be read at the meeting if you can't attend. We'll then all collectively vote towards the meeting's end to see who'll we'll support for write-in candidate. If there are write-in candidates from other CDs, let Andy know ASAP (at email above or 4l2 - 478 -9O82).
