    Donna Hicks running for 3rd VC???

    “We must be real to the young adults.” That kills me. Could help if you actually had a young adult as 3rd VC as the other two candidates are!

    And yet you left out the valiant attempt to strike the resolution commending RINO Lindsey Grahmnesty… Too bad it wasn’t successful!

      I did do that. Unfortunately, I was talking with rules people and trying to make sure I was aware of the happenings that I gave up the live blog at that time.
