Why vote down the take over compromise at the convention
For a period spanning 2 years, I had the best floor attendance record for floor votes in the entire Utah legislature. I wanted to hear what Rep. King, Rep. Powell, Rep. Bird, and Rep. Noel were going to say. Even though I had read the bills in advance, discussing them could cause me to change my mind or figure out a better way, solving the concerns of many.
That is being proposed to be removed from the caucus meeting. We would be mailing in or dropping off votes, but not meeting and discussing candidates and issues. That is what is wrong with Washington DC. They don't listen to each other in a meeting. They watch from their offices. We need to change that not follow it.
"AND if the caucus event is opened up so everyone can participate even if they cannot attend at a specific place at a specific time" .
I say go watch WALL-E from Pixar again, the people on the spaceship.
I like the idea of improving the caucus meeting so everyone that wasnot at the meeting can find out who represents them and who to contact. We can make the meetings so someone can come for two hours and vote.
are talking neighborhood town halls. We aren't just meeting to elect
delegates. I believe theCount My Vote / Buy My Votegroup would ruin that.
The current system does not protect the incumbent, wealthy or famous. Ie think that is a good thing.
