June 26 Meeting in St. Albans

The next state Executive Committee meeting of the CPWV will be held Saturday, June 26, 2010 at the Shoney’s Restaurant in St. Albans, WV from 12:00 noon to 2pm. Note that this is deliberately planned to be a short meeting so that we can spend the remainder of the day circulating our ballot access petitions at the St. Albans River Fest (2010 signature deadline is July 30 – Phil Hudok for Congress). As such, we will follow just a basic agenda of officer reports and old business follow-up, with no discussion of platform items. Resolutions and new business will be included only as time permits.

Those of you who can arrive early, there is a 5k run-walk at 8am followed by a parade beginning at 11am (lineup at 10am, St. Francis Church on 6th Ave.). Parade routes are an excellent opportunity to present our petitions to the public. People will be there as early as 8am reserving their viewing seats. After the meeting there is kid’s tractor pull at 4pm. Also at 4:00 is a performance by the Crossroads Blues Band of WV followed by the South Of The River Band and then a fireworks display at dusk.

    Although only four officers were able to attend due to vacation schedules and other commitments (no quorum, not logged as one of our official meetings), we did have two new attendees and four other members present. We circulated our ballot access petitions prior to the meeting at the St. Albans RiverFest parade on 6th Ave and also afterwords at the site of the actual festival on the Kanawha River.

    Discussion of our next meeting and upcoming events was held. There are numerous well attended events in July to circulate petitions, the Ripley 4th of July parade (on July 3) being one of the bigger ones. Three members plan to attend that. We will also plan to circulate at the National Hunting and Fishing Days event at Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park on Saturday, September 25.

    Our next state party meeting was tentatively set for Saturday, September 11 in the Elkins area.
