Just a quick note about the state convention nominating committee that will be meeting tomorrow, Saturday, April 16, at RPI.
The task of the nominating committee is to produce the “slate” of 15 national convention delegates and 15 alternates that will be presented to the state convention for consideration on May 21.
We all saw the record amount of interest at our own district conventions last week, so these members clearly have an unenviable task ahead of them!
Earlier this week, one of the committee members, Eric Rosenthal, sent out a form for interested applicants to fill out and return if they wished to be considered by thecommittee. Many of you have inquired if this was an official form from RPI; it was not. However, Mr. Rosenthal created a form with the intent to streamline and facilitate thecommittee‘s work, and he included requests for information that he felt the committeewould want to know during its deliberations.
Some have submitted letters directly to RPI, and some have returned the form Mr. Rosenthal distributed on behalf of the nominating committee. I have listed the contact information for members of the nominating committee below. If you have anyone still interested in becoming a delegate and wishing to be considered for inclusion on the slate, please have them contact one of your district’s nominating committee members.
Finally, on behalf of Adam, Alex, Kolby, Austin, and myself, I want to say THANK YOU one more time for all of the work you have done in the past 18 months or so, hosting the candidates for President in your counties; demonstrating Iowa Nice hospitality to campaign staff and traveling media; preparing for the actual “work” of the caucuses; and demonstrating grace under pressure with the tremendous record turnout on February 1st! Our state once again demonstrated why Iowa deserves to be First in the Nation, and that was only possible because of the time, commitment and talent contributed by you and the thousands of volunteers at the precinct caucuses.
See you at state convention!
