Full Platform amendment package submitted to State Convention!

47 Amendments sent to State Convention Platform Committee on April 25.  After meeting every day for nearly a full week, the members of the 2022 Convention delegation from the 46th District developed, prepared, edited and submitted a full package of amendments, additions, and strikes for the 2022 Platform draft.   A coordinated effort with other districts will prove to reduce duplicate submissions, and also, the 43rd and 32nd LDs were kind enough to carry some additional amendments when we had exhausted our open spots. 

Kudos go to Hunter Brown, the 46th's delegation Platform Representative, and chair of the platform effort in the 46th.  Lori Mahieu, Christy Wood and Andrzej Montano rounded out the documentation team assisting Hunter with tracking all of the work.   Tara Gallagher, Sarajane Siegfriedt, Pat Tressel, Julie Conklin, Christy Wood, Lori Mahieu, and Marc Auerbach were the top volume amendment drafters, and Bryce Cannatelli, Lori Shelden, Debby Nissen, Lisa Rivera Smith, Jordan DeMaria, Pam Dalan, K. Kelly, Andrzej Montano all contributed amendments and editing to the document.  Julie Anne Kempf coordinated with other LDs to share our extra amendments and get them submitted.

An excellent effort by all!  Way to represent the 46th District!
