Representatives from 10 Counties of North Carolina's Eighth Congressional District to Meet, Eat, Plan
Note the following text of an email and letter sent out earlier this week from the Chairman of the 8th District:
Next Saturday, 23 February 2008, [members of the 8th Congressional District Democratic Executive Committee] are invited – encouraged! – to attend. We will meet in a specially-designated room in the restaurant at the historic Ellerbe Springs Inn & Restaurant, located on 2537 U.S. 220 Hwy north of Ellerbe in Richmond County. ... This location is centrally-located in the district. Over the past year we have traveled to Anson, Montgomery, Stanly, Richmond, and Cumberland for district matters, and in May 2008 we will have our district convention in Cabarrus County.
Please arrive no later than 11 a.m. We will convene promptly at that time and proceed with our official business before taking a lunch recess at 12 noon. During lunch, after folks return to their seats with a meal, we will resume our business and strategy meeting. It is my plan to adjourn no later than 1:30 p.m., with a valiant attempt to adjourn earlier if possible. Everyone is responsible for his or her lunch ticket.
During the meeting we will receive reports from each District officer, County party, and the district’s auxiliary groups; review our plans from the Stanly County meeting last Summer; resolve an administrative/financial matter; review the delegate selection process; and, help Cabarrus organize and prepare for its hosting of the District Convention on May 17.
If you have any questions or wish to propose an additional item of business, then please call me or email me at the numbers to the left of this text.
If you are unable to attend, then please send a proxy. We urge every one of the 10 counties in the 8th District to send at least one representative to this meeting. If possible, though not a requirement, RSVP to me so the restaurant will have enough seats prepared for us. We are presently estimating 20 attendees total.
I look forward to seeing you on Saturday --- 2008 appears every bit to be the Democratic year we expected!
If you live in the 8th Congressional District, then please encourage your members of the district-wide Executive Committee to attend. We need county chairs and first vice chairs, in particular, to join us.
Counties comprising the district include: Anson, Cabarrus, Cumberland, Hoke, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Richmond, Scotland, Stanly, and Union.
