At some point every Father should explain to a son that someday a Man will come up to you with a deck of cards whose seal has not been broken and invite you to play a friendly game,
On November the 10th two days after a historic National Election many members of the LCRCC were offered a hand from a marked deck of cards.
While most of us had all of our attention and energy focused on an election that we felt might determine the course of the Nation for generations to come,
It would appear that our Executives were spending their time plotting a completely different Election,
Unless we are to believe they woke up Nov 9 and said to each other
HEY Let's have a LCRCC Officers Election and we have only ONE DAY to get the notices in the Mail!!
No my friends call me cynical but I surmise the spent quite a bit of time on this effort rather then the General Election,
They have in the past sprumg surprises on the Committee like this
There is usually some overwhelmlng emergency that requires us to ACT NOW.
In this caee we got the notice on Thursday, they want the election on
Tuesday and Oh yes they want the Rules to limit who can run for office
To only people in a full slate composed of a Chair Co-Chair, Treasurer
No we cannot allow anyone to just run for an office by themselves
Also they don't seem to be eager for anyone to run against them.
The little more than 4 days notice combined with the Slate requirements?
If not a Marked Deck looks a lot like Stacked Deck or maybe Loaded Dice?
We need to take time to reflect, examine and ponder our options,
THIS Time I say enough,
I say we REMIND them that the
The Executive Committee is subject to the orders of the Linn County Central Committee, and none of its acts shall conflict with actions of the Linn County Central Committee.
That THEY work for us and at our pleasure not the Reverse
