My Top 3 Priorities

  • Address needed changes to bylaws to implement proportional voting. The original proposed bylaws were voted down because they were too complex.
  • Address needed changes to bylaws to guarantee that all signed ballots in endorsements are preserved for possible audits. Currently there is no standard procedure for securing and storing ballots
  • Split North Area Caucus into North Area Coastal and North Area Inland
