Oooops, small problem!/Why so few LPSF members at the convention?

Marcy,

  I was not aware that such a vote was taken, but I'm glad there was a
group vote, even though I was not there to participate and would have
voted differently had I been there. If the vast majority of people at
the meeting voted for a transportation initiative, then that's what we
should go with. Therefore I suggest simply amending the process I
proposed to require that any initiative submitted be related to private
transportation.

  Speaking of the last meeting, I understand that we were joined by some
east and north bay Libertarians for the purpose of discussing strategy
for the convention. This makes me all the more curious -- where were
all the San Franciscans in L.A.? I thought we had a good list of people
signed up as delegates, but besides Jeanine Ring and myself, the only
people I saw from our region were Morey Straus and David Rhodes. I
particularly wonder what happened to Bryce Bigwood and Steve Dekorte,
who were supposed to represent us on the platform and program
committees respectively.

Yours in liberty,

Again, thank you to Starchild for his voting procedure, with which I
expressed agreement. However, I just realized that at the last LPSF
meeting there was a formal vote to focus the initiative effort on a
subject related to private transportation (curb rights, jitneys,
etc). There were 15 Activists at the meeting, and as I recall, the
vast majority voted to keep the transportation initiative. Therefore,
if we are to open the field to other proposals, we will need to vote
on overriding that formal vote. I am open to suggestions.

Starchild,

I felt guilty myself for not going to the Convention; I pleaded
family obligations. I know Bryce's work was in crunch mode, so he
could not go. Yes, the EB people came for the social and got
together with those at the meeting who planned to attend. But all
this does not go to the heart of your question: Why not more
participation? Perhaps not enough mention was given at the meetings
or on-line? Perhaps some of us were intimidated? Perhaps there
should have been more teamwork? I look forward to your, and the
other attendees' Convention report at the next meeting, and maybe you
can say a few words on how to increase participation?
