By Nate Boyer, Chairman of Preliminary Rules Committee for the 2018 Sixth District Republican Convention
Late last night RPV Chairman John Whitbeck sent an email to all members of the RPV State Central Committee and the 6th Congressional District Republican Committee demanding action regarding concerns he raised regarding the upcoming convention that will determine the 6th District Republican nominee for Congress.
As the Chairman of the preliminary Rules Committee for the upcoming convention and someone who greatly respects our RPV Chairman I was dismayed to note that with respect to every rules related issue he raised, the issues had issues had already been dealt with by the Rules Committee—prior to his sending the email.
I was further troubled that Chairman Whitbeck had not called me to determine how we were treating the issues he raised prior to adding to the hubbub surrounding this convention with his email. Below is a response several of my fellow Rules Committee members and I sent the Chairman to set the record straight.
