Dear Alcona County Republicans,
No, the Minutes are not done yet. Yes, I should have sent this out sooner. The Blue Screen of Death has happened on several occasions. I will be Repealing and Replacing my computer soon. Porcupine Quills and Sick Cats have delayed my work as well.
FOR MONDAY'S MEETING:
There will be 2 things we will be voting on.
1) Whether or not to support an Article V Convention of States as the ACR.
2) Whether or not to support Brian Calley's initiative for a Part-Time Legislation as the ACR.
Prior to these votes, we will have a brief discussion. REMINDER: ONLY DUES PAYING MEMBERS GET A VOTE. More information is at the bottom of this email.
