Good Afternoon Everyone!

I hope you all are getting a little time to enjoy the weather before diving in to district conventions tomorrow.

Per our constitution, I am hereby naming the following people to temporary leadership positions for the state convention.  I am very excited about the group of people chosen. With the possibility of a gubernatorial nomination election at the convention, we looked for people who have or would remain neutral in the process - especially for the convention chairs and chairs of Rules, Platform, and Credentials which play such an important role in the process.  Additionally, we looked to bring some new people into these roles who could represent different voices within the party. 

All of these people bring unique perspectives into the process, and we are excited to have their help as we work to build out the convention on June 16th.
