Hello Summer 2019!!
While I know I’m taking some time to enjoy our nice summer weather, our political work doesn’t stop and I’m sure we’re all are busy recruiting candidates for our upcoming elections. Because many of us have spoken over the last few Chairs calls and heard me speak at regional meetings, I’ll keep this email brief.
Our ODCCA summer meeting will be held on Monday, June 17th at 7:00pm, in The Pierce Room at The Hilton, 401 N. High St. Columbus, Oh. This should give chairs time to have dinner before our meeting and after the conference ends at 5:00. I know there’s a few vendor presentations, but this is the only free evening during the conference. Hopefully, chairs needing to see vendors can do so during the conference or earlier Monday evening. We’ll try to keep the meeting to an hour or so; please come prepared to start on time and stay on the agenda.
Following the regular ODCCA meeting, I’d like to have a discussion with the ODCCA officers and regional liaisons. Maybe we can grab dinner or a drink together and review and plan for the rest of 2019.
Earlier on Monday, ODP and ODCCA will be inviting OAEO Democratic officers, trustees and legislative committee members to join us for a round table discussion from 11:30 to 1pm. This is before the conference starts and we hope you’ll urge your members to attend this vital discussion. Topics will include voter purges, uniform voting hours and legal issues before the courts and relating to Ohio voting and districts. We’ll have legal voting experts there to answer questions and help us understand the history of some important voting issues. Chairs are also welcome to attend, but we need a RSVP so we can plan food for the event.
Finally, the agenda and more details will be sent as soon as possible.
Chair, Geauga Dems
