More than 70 people had enough interest in SD49 to attend the convention February 20, via Zoom. It has been proposed that we invite those folks and anyone else interested in SD49’s future direction to an in-person planning meeting where we can openly discuss and debate how to attract voters and win elections.
Past SD49 candidates should also be invited to participate to share their experience and insights. It should be a meeting where goals, strategies and tactics are developed. An in-person meeting, where everyone is encouraged to speak up and present ideas and solutions, is an ideal format.
This meeting should be scheduled in April/May, if feasible (when the emergency pandemic restrictions on large in-person meetings have been lifted). No Zoom! It should take place in a venue where the participants can see and talk to each other.
