I’m in Hays County and I think that is part of SD 25. They did not win in Hays.
The 1st vote was to take over the county chair, that went to voice, standing and then a ballot vote. I would have sworn they would have won. They lost that by 40 votes. Thank God for the good ones who showed up. And Stayed.
Surprisingly they didn’t get too tough on the Delegates but there were several ballot votes on the resolutions. They lost most biggies but we killed 2 resolutions, one very important to them (declare war before going to war) and the other minor to both sides in the grand scheme of things. .. (limit the increase of the budget to increase of population + inflation).
but then we DID have 2 that were unanimous, oppose the Obama Global proverty act and
no matter what happens in CD vs Heller Texas should protect our 2nd amendment rights.
It was certainly not boring.
Normally our convention lasts 4 hours. This year it went 6 1/2 hours. I hear Travis county went 12 hours. anyone have details about Travis?
More on the Travis SD-14 convention is at Travis Monitor, just posted the links ... two live-blog reports.
It went 13 hours. I was there for the first 8 hours and had to go home. Once the ‘renegades’ lost on a test vote on changing the rules, the ‘regulars’ were able to run the convention. But it dragged on. Egads, I couldnt stay until the bitter end.
