November Minutes


Meeting, Nov. 9, 2011

Seven Washington County Democrats met Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2011, in a second floor meeting room of the Washington Public Library.

Chairman Peter Morrison called the meeting to order led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Minutes of the October monthly meeting were noted and filed for record.

Kay presented the treasurer’s report and distributed copies of the report, from Oct. 12 to November 9, 2011. Cash on hand on October 12 was $1,470.07. With income and expenses, cash available on Nov. 9, 2011, was $1,775.07, the treasurer’s report would be filed for audit.

Chairman Pete commented on the Second District Convention will be held April 28, 2012, and that pursuant to the request of the Second District and Al Bohanan, their Chairman, he made application on the provided forms to host the event.

We don’t as yet have active committee chairs and we will need to have committees and need to have then in place after the first part of the year 2012.

Old Business:

Precinct designation is in a state of flux right now. All our precinct locations will, Pete thinks, remain pretty much the same. Pete has contacted all of the elected Precinct Captains, with the exception of Patrick Finney, and determined that Richard Gilmore will be the temporary 4th Ward Captain. Harold Frakes declined to act and a Temporary Chair will be required for Brighton. As soon as everything is finalized, a listing of the Precinct data will be distributed to all members with email.

The Second District is hoping to have the district convention in Washington as the central location. They will need to select a site, and they have sent out district convention bid documents. We previously discussed some possibilities, such as Washington High School or Highland High School. The convention would be held on April 28, 2012. As noted, we have applied to be the host for the 2012 Convention. We should know what the decision of the 2nd District would be in January or possibly earlier.

New Business:

We will have a complete list of 2012 Caucus Chairs/Places soon. It will be email distributed upon completion.

The consensus is that the December meeting will be the 2nd Wednesday in December, on the 14th. The time will change back to 7:00 p.m. in the meeting room of the Library.

County Convention plans will be made at the January 2012 meeting. Current plans call for the County convention to be held again at the Library, using both the 2nd floor meeting rooms.

Chairman Pete adjourned the meeting. The next meeting will be at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2011.

Respectfully submitted,

Pete Morrison, Chair and acting Sec.
