9/26/2015 9:20:28 AM Motion Casey Voekes “Move tha we vote in favor of the Resolution opposing Proposition.
More time next Tuesday and Wednesday we will hold meetings. To speak to the concern of process, it was presented days after we conceived of it. We presented over a week ago. Tax policy is out of control. The Sales tax and gone ups 3 times.
Commissioner Lee is alone in the County on this issue. We love him. He is amazing and fighting the fight for all of us every day.”
9/26/2015 9:24:12 AM Favor Bill Lee “There is a member of this body that asked me this question, “”what is the moral line of perenct of tax – 20, 30, 50%”” Are we are 20%? I know the government needs revenue, but how much is enough to make it work.
We can vote yes on this and No in November. 60% goes to mass trnasit. We need to invest in our future but appropriately with the support of this people. Let’s be wise in this and please vote yeas on this resolution.”
9/26/2015 9:24:16 AM Against Kirby Glad “I am probably going to vote against the increase in Novbember. I don’t believe we should exercise our position in this way. I appreciate commissioner Lee’s commente. I know the other commissioners are smart guuys. I think that for our voice to mean soemthing it has to be based on good information from both sides of the issue.
I don’t think we have enough information to make a fair decision.”
9/26/2015 9:25:49 AM Against Mike Terry Lindon 6. My point is that virtually every one of the footnotes are to newspaper articles. The old adage of trusting the patper is not true. I am looing for better support. If the only thing you can cite is newspaper, then that is weak.
9/26/2015 9:27:01 AM Against I have never seen the text of the document. It wasn’t on the table. I can’t vote for it because I don’t have it.
9/26/2015 9:27:49 AM Vote Craig Frank “We adopt resolution opposing Proposition 1 as it is before you.
Passes by majority.”
9/26/2015 9:28:53 AM Report Dan Hone “Finance chair on steering committee. Pressed for time.We want to reinvent what we are doing. “”Commit””, “”Invest””, “”Sustain”” 5, 10 and 20 dollars. Automatic withdrawals will start in October. 5 from 10% of party would pay for everything. The one strength that the party has over lobbyists is getting the word out through you. We as a party can help sponsor those meetings. It will cost some money.
Meet those who are running ffor office and other activities. This next year we will get more involvement from you.
We are working through our technical problems. You will get a receipt.
We have common values and virtues.
We need to support those in office and running for office. The state doesn’t provide sufficeient funds to run an active office – so they don’t have to rely on lobbyists and others.”
9/26/2015 9:35:53 AM Report It is a pleasure to work with Dan. Most of you should have the financial documents from last year with the budget. YTD on 2015 for this year. 2016 proposed budget.
9/26/2015 9:37:29 AM Motion Craig Frank “3.5 hours of budget meeting and the work of executive committee.
Adopt proposed 2016 budget.”
9/26/2015 9:38:20 AM Object Mark Barlow “3rd item down is candidsate support and convention and primary.
Then in the budget don’t show support for candidates after they are our candidates.”
9/26/2015 9:39:07 AM Answer Craig Frank Have treasurer answer.
9/26/2015 9:39:22 AM Answer We combined line items 75 of them. The primary is to support all candidates equally.After we have our candidate we will give another. Ther is some to give to help some to people to actually run who would not have run.
9/26/2015 9:40:32 AM Answer Craig Frank “This was part of a Dan Hone conversation. We want to be impartial of qualified candidtates so we wanted to give a coupel of hundered for party candidates to help them get started. They can be expensive. In this case they can receive money from our party as a qualified candidate to finance minor costs.
When they make it through convention then they would receive unopposed dollars that are neutral. After Primary they could receive more funding.”
9/26/2015 9:44:41 AM Amend “Republican party is conservative and frugal. Last year we spent 36,000 last year. Caucus. The video contest didn’t work. Let’s get the 3000 to college republicans.
Scratch the video contest”
9/26/2015 9:45:44 AM Vote Craig Frank Passes
9/26/2015 9:46:22 AM Discussion Budget 12k versus 20k.
9/26/2015 9:46:34 AM Answer Craig Frank Historical figures are 100k to 12k. Election year is larger.Provide seating and sponsorship that brings positive cash flow. 50k income is conservative with 40% expense ratio. February 6, 2016.
9/26/2015 9:48:34 AM Discussion Planning to spend and raise. Caucus night that needs to be explained. What have we raised? Will expenses be matched to our income?
9/26/2015 9:49:16 AM Answer Craig Frank We will spend no more than we have. I have not run cuacus before.
9/26/2015 9:49:37 AM Answer There was a lot of discussion. I thank you for this participation. We have focus and participation and that is fantastic. Caucus night we made around 20k. We had alrge discussion and the funds are raised at the grassroots. Caucus night is the only event we tough on everyone. We want to support you more this year. We want to raise more funds on that night. We thinkk there is more.Those who have run one do you think we could help you better with paperwork or other things. We want to set a high goal then we can shoot for something.
9/26/2015 9:51:46 AM Question How many precincts 267 voting precincts. So each precinct will raise more than 200. That is giong to be a big effort.
9/26/2015 9:53:05 AM Discussion Talked about after the convention we would split our money. Will we support those who get on with signatures?
9/26/2015 9:53:36 AM Answer Craig Frank I did say qualifying coming out of convention. We would support equally so the signature pathway is not coming out of the convention.
9/26/2015 9:54:40 AM Discussion Given it is presidential year I would like to request information on 2012 so that we can compare apples to apples.

We have moved the office from mouth of the canyon to a storage shed. Jeff Alexander has lent us office. But we are now digital.

If there are fewer than 2 then nominations are open and you may self nominate. You can not close if someone wants to self nominate.
One election at a time so the chair is complete. Limit 3 minutes unless you bump it up.
