Shepherd/Floor Manager/Sponsor: Ian Jackson Treasurer
- Set a side for an adjustment for the administrator.
- Set side an amount for a car in Boston Pride and booth. We may not have candidates to chip in.
- Funds to buy signatures to insure that we have at least two elected members of state com.
- New Locals will need to raise their own funds.
- Suggested that we consider having a scholarship to an external campaign school
- State House News clearly sorely needed.
- In Solidarity of American Postal Workers Union, office supplies will not be purchased from staples.
Pride is a major event. Ideally, we should be at large events in different parts of Mass
#3. I get that you mean signatures toward formally being elected to StateCom, but I’d like to see more StateCom members also be elected to local offices. That’ll be how we promote Green ideas in practice.
If a person wants to be sure of their membership after the Presidential, they will need to collect signatures from 50 people in their Senatorial districts.
4 years ago Scott L. did the work of collecting signatures. 8 years ago Merelice and someone else collected signatures.
I want people to reminded early and often about the legal requirements.
As a party, we need to insure that at least one person is willing to do the work of getting the 50 signatures.
#3: “buy signatures”- what are we, the mafia or what?
- was removed. Two people have stepped forward to run for State Comm and get signatures.
- is to highlight one method trying to insure participation by all as suggested in one of the other proposals.
The standing rules [http://www.green-rainbow.org/standing_rules] and the agenda have the budget at a different time then the Treasurer’s report.
On change #3., I’m unclear to what body the two statecomm member would be elected, and why we’d buy signatures, instead of collect them on a volunteer basis again.
1) How much should we set aside for a possible salary adjustment for the administrator
2) The cost of Boston Pride goes up at the end of February.
