2014 MCDP Convention


On Saturday, March 22, MCDP conducted its 2014 County Convention at the Lone Star Convention Center on FM 3083 in Conroe.  MCDP Vice Chair and the Convention organizer, Adrienne Cadik, opened the convention by introducing our newly re-elected County Chair, Bruce Barnes, who called the convention to order at 9 AM.  After veteran Les Rosenblatt led the pledges to the United States and Texas flags, the MCDP Quintet performed The Star Spangled Banner.

The main business of the County Convention is to elect delegates to the Texas Democratic State Convention and to consider resolutions.  Interspersed in these proceedings were dynamic addresses by two candidates - Mike Collier, candidate for State Comptroller, and Dr. Michael Hayles, Sr., candidate for State Representative, District 16.  In addition, Dick Alexander, a long-time Democrat and businessman in The Woodlands, spoke about the soaring wealth discrepancy in the United States, a topic he covered in his book “Understanding the Arithmetic of America”.

Carol Stromatt organized a very successful silent auction, furnished with items donated by MCDP members.  Michael Smith,our Finance Chair, conducted a live auction on several items of particular interest.  Les Rosenblatt led the discussion of member-submitted resolutions on a wide variety of topics, of which seven were adopted for recommendation to the State Party.  The convention elected 55 delegates to the State Convention, and adjourned at 2:30 PM.

 

As the convention started, no one was aware that one of our members, Precinct Chair Jeanne Elaine Daggett, died in a head-on car accident on the way to her first convention.  Let’s remember Jeanne and honor her memory.

Meet Democratic Candidates

Bruce Barnes, our newly re-elected MCDP Chair in the March 4 Primary Election, invited on March 8th three of our Democratic candidates.  The candidates were well received by the members of MCDP.  Each candidate had a chance to present his platform, campaign strategy, and ideas how they would work with their constituency if elected.  The initial introduction was followed by a lively Q&A section and discussion.

Thank You

Election Judges/Clerks

We want to thank all of the judges and clerks who served on the March 4th Montgomery County Democratic Party Primary Election.  In spite of the icy weather, our Democrats honered their commitments and opened the polls at all Montgomery County precints.

In addition, I want to thank you for your patience leading up to the Primary Election when we had to move some of the judges and clerks to other locations.  Finally, I want to thank those judges and clerks that had to travel to other locations that were well outside their communities.

You are all to be commended for serving your community and country.

Once again,

Thank you for your service,

Les Rosenblatt
