Llano County Democratic Party Convention

Kingsland Library, 125 W. Polk, Kingsland, TX
Dear Llano County Democrats:
The Llano County Public Library System has made the difficult decision to close all Llano public libraries effective March 18, 2020.
The Llano County Democratic Party County Convention scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. cannot be cancelled. According to the Texas Democratic Party rules, the convention must be held. There are two main reasons for the convention are to:
Identify and elect the 6 delegates to the state convention in June. (TDP rules make the County Chair an automatic delegate)
Send any resolutions coming before the convention to the state 2.
convention in June.
We have received guidance from the TDP on how to conduct the convention under these circumstances. Time and location remain the same!
According to the TDP we have 14 preregistered to attend the convention. We are asking that anyone planning on attending the convention on Saturday pre-register at:
If you want to to be a state delegate, it is particularly important that you check that box.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU DO THIS IMMEDIATELY BUT NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, MARCH 19, 2020.
I have now been informed by the TDP that we can add names to the state delegates list for 30 days should we not have sufficient names. Preregistering is no guarantee you will be selected.
To make sure we are all inclusive it is been determined by the CEC, for the Chair (and a few persons) to go to the site posted for the convention.
--Allow anyone who arrives in person to sign-in and indicate their desire to be a state delegate.
--All present will be informed that the convention will be in the Pro Forma format and any who would like to leave may do so. (TDP will have emailed all pre-registrants this info in advance.
-- The Chair will call the meeting to order at the appropriate posted time.
--State Delegates: Chair entertains a motion: "I move that the Chair and a Nominating Committee consisting of these persons (__________________________-
______________________________________________) is empowered to create a delegate list to the state convention from those who registered in person,
--those who have pre-registered online, and adding any additional names should they be needed for the next 30 days until the list is final." Move to adopt!
--Resolutions: Move to adopt, " I move all resolutions be forwarded to the State Convention without recommendation and ask the TDP Temporary Resolutions
Committee to give them due consideration." Move to adopt!!
-- Chair will now entertain a motion to adjourn!
--The Chair and Nominations Committee if appointed will send to TDP any Resolutions sumitted in person along with the delegate list within days
--The TDP will keep a running list and report when when delegations are full should it be necessary. Current rules allow us to keep adding state delegates for 30 days should that be necessary.
