Dear Chairman Wilson,
With the issue of how to proceed regarding the election of our leadership, and the many rumors that abound, not to mention the offered recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee, I write to ask that as members of the State Central Committee, if we could be given a report of the following;
1. An accounting of what has been collected, and more importantly spent to date, with regards to a State Convention.
2. Who, or more importantly what, is Stratpoli? What is their role and involvement in our process of election?
3. Are members of our leadership involved in the entity ”Stratpoli”, and does their involvement clearly represent a conflict of interest in the event of a disagreement?
4. Were official candidates allowed to merely even witness (not participate, but witness) the discussions and deliberations of the Ad Hoc Committee?
5. Were members of “Stratpoli” allowed to witness, manipulate, or participate, in the deliberations of the Ad Hoc Committee?
6. Will a party plan amendment, be offered to create a separate tribunal, a “Stratpoli” to officiate in the event of future elections of the State Central Committee to replace the responsibilities set forth in the Party Plan of the State Central Committee?
7. If the State Central Committee allows a separate entity to assume the role of arbitrator and policymaker for our Party, will this require a redefinition of our Party Plan and role of the SCC?
Asking you to consider that people’s perception is their reality. I hope you will find the above questions important enough to address at the beginning of the next meeting of the State Central Committee.
We all have much admiration and respect for the Ad Hoc Committee members and their work. However, you potentially do them a great disservice not to explain that the process included the involvement of paid consultants of whom loyalties and contractual duties have not been disclosed to the members of the State Central Committee.
State Central Committee
