Revised agenda for 11/19 Eastside General Meeting

The 41st LD has announced a change in the agenda  for the Eastside general meeting at 7-9 PM Wednesday at Tyee Middle School.  The reason for several LD’s meeting together is to enable all candidates for 2015-2016 Chair of the King County Democratic Central Committee to spend more time sharing their viewpoints instead of traveling among the 5th, 41st and 48th LD’s that evening.

The agenda as originally announced provided for a combined meeting before the Candidate event, with a business meeting following.  Since the 48th has no business planned for 11/19 and this event does not allow sufficient time for review and discussion of our proposed Bylaws revision, that agenda would have allowed our members to quietly exit after the Candidate event.  The revised agenda includes 30-45 minutes for individual break-out LD business meetings between the initial speaker (Kurt DelBene on the Affordable Care Act) and the Candidate event [considering the nature of  Q&A, my crystal ball is predicting 20 minutes left for business meetings.  Phil Kouse].

The 48th will use its “break-out” for an informal “Good of the Order” session.

The new agenda with tentative times announced to us Tuesday morning by 41st LD Program Chair Dorothy Willard, who is chairing the joint meeting:

  • 7:00 Kurt DelBene on the Affordable Care Act
  • 7:30 LDs break out for individual meetings. (48th will conduct no business involving voting.)
  • 8:15 KCDCC Chair candidates event. Persons known at this time to be seeking nomination at the 12/6 King County Democrats’ reorganization meeting (9 AM at location to be announced) are Omaha Sternberg, Rich Erwin and Betsy Walker
  • 9:00 Adjournment.
