Notes from for Legislators District 60 and State District 15 delegate meeting


I was called last week to be a replacement delegate. I went to the delegate meeting on Wed night and these are the notes I took on the candidates. I went to the different candidates and asked, “Why should I vote for you?” I then took notes. When I talked to other delegates, there were a lot of complaints about how bad the communication system was between leadership and the delegates. One State Central Committee, candidate expressed concern that he didn’t know about Wednesday meeting until the day before.

I sent emails to some of these people and some replied giving me their websites in case you want to read more.

Any misinformation is the fault of the note taker.

County Party Chair

Ryan Boudwin

  • In his next term, he would like to concentrate on promoting the Republican message.
  • Q: What are your feelings toward the various tangents of the Republican Party? We are a big tent. If we can agree on 80% on issues we are good.
  • Q: What is your explanation on the citizen complaint that a signature candidate was not promoted by the Republican Party as the cactus candidate was? Ryan said that the rules of the party require that they have to be official candidate of the Republican Party and those are the people we can promote. The Signature candidate did not meet the rules of the party to be a candidate.
  • Pointed out things he promised that he says he accomplished.
