Tag: Outreach Vice-Chair
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
Just before the 2011 MIGOP State Convention, Troy Rolling, who was Bobby Schostak's challenger for MIGOP State Chair (and who was running without a Co-Chair candidate) withdrew his name from consideration, and his withdrawal letter was presented at the district caucuses on Friday night. This left now-Chairman Schostak running unopposed. After he and his co-chair Sharon Wise were unanimously approved by the General Session on Saturday, and a few speeches (Ron Weiser actually referenced my interview with him during his address), the convention got down to the business of nominating, supporting, and electing the MIGOP vice-chairs for the 2011 - 2012 term. Those results, and some other observations, are below the fold.

Okay, before I get started, let me point out that the Delegate Packet that was supposed to go out to every single voting delegate and alternate to the 2011 MIGOP State Convention can be found by following this link. (It's a downloadable PDF.) I say "supposed to go out" because, once again, someone seems to be screwing around with the credentialing process. More correctly, there seems to be some delegates and alternates who aren't getting their convention information in a timely manner, if indeed at all.
But surveys, of course, seem to be going out to everyone (whether by e-mail or by phone) . . . and that's where we go below the fold.
