    Added to post. The link may change later when it changes from live to recorded mode and will be updated here.

    More comments, Mark Tuniewicz, Starchild.

    Redpath asks to move ballot access to right after adoption of agenda so he can get back out to petition, since he is no longer on LNC.

  3. paulie Post author

    Jul 27 soonest deadline. NJ has hired someone.

    4k? In Maine – Thrasher there and a petition company. Hard to hear Bill.

    PA Aug 3, lost lawsuit, bringing more people in.

    From Jill Galvan:

    I can’t hear him well either but MN has more than 1600 raw. I’ll know more tomorrow night after we count the paper at our excom meeting. We’re turning in what we have this week and it’ll be up to ten days before we know how many were accepted.

    Redpath: More people being brought in to PA

  5. paulie Post author

    More from Jill G: 1236 electronic, I have 51 on me, the chair believes we have about 500 that have come in on paper, but he hasn’t actually counted. So 1600 may be conservative. Estimated until tomorrow night. We have paper everywhere.

  6. paulie Post author

    Secretary asks for conflicts of interest.

    Chair asks everyone for introductions, which is what we are now on.

  7. paulie Post author

    Staff reports, Fishman, transitioning to G-suite for email, documents and a variety of other things.

    Ken – policies and procedures committee?
    Members expressed need to solicit membership

    David Pratt Demarest in zoom chat: Keep in mind the importance of opening up, where appropriate, as many committees to LP members who are not currently serving on the LNC.

    Mark Tuniewicz in zoom: @DavidPratt super important. We should give full notice to all members, so that they can apply to committees. Why didn’t we publicize the Asst. Treasurer position?

    CAH, Lucchini motion to go with JBH motion, officers plus Phillips, Longstreth, Ebke

    Adams motion to divide.

  12. paulie Post author

    dpd exaxctly “I support monthly meetings. I support strengthening the ability of LNC members to advise the Chair. I support strengthening the ability of non-LNC members to advise the LNC, hence the suggestions of opening more committees to non-LNC membership. “

  13. paulie Post author

    Question on continuing ad hoc committee

    Blockchain, Membership Support, Youth Engagement, Convention Voting Process

  18. paulie Post author

    Thrasher in zoom chat:

    For the record, if the Convention Voting Process Committee is to be reconstituted, I will apply to serve on that committee. Improving our convention voting is imperative, and I would work diligently to be a part of the solutions.

    You forgot the fun part where we discussed if members of certain ethnicities/religions (which often have members with darker but not obviously African skin) could be considered white or non-white. (You specifically asked about Jews.) It’s definitely true there are gray areas.

    The relevant issue being my snotty comment about Why is LP national FB posting its own “we must be actively anti-racist” meme when LNC and staff are mostly white. So when is LNC going to be “actively anti-racist”.

    Now that’s something I might have brought up in public comments, but only discovered it during meeting and didn’t occur to me. I’ll have to wait til an Am meeting when I’m more caffeinated.

    Voluntary affirmative action rocks! Anti-discrimination LAWS suck.

    Continued from CAH notes

    Longstreth moved to reconstitute Youth Process and Convention Voting Process.

    Moellman extend for five minutes.

    Luchini moved to divide.

    Smith moved to reconstitute blockchain. 7 members.

    Moellman extend for 10 minutes. 10-5

    Reached the end of CAH live notes. Link is above. Still double checking APRC winners. I had it in zoom chat and it was turned off right at the moment I was trying to copy it to paste here.

  24. paulie Post author

    APRC CAH, Bilyeu, David Sexton, …Longstreth, Nekhaila

    CAH confirmed this is the correct lineup via FB. She said it’s in one note as well, I did not find it there this morning but may not have been searching correctly.

  25. Carol Moore

    I did think I heard one LNC member vote no in a low voice but it was recorded as “yes”. If my ears were correct (and I don’t feel like searching through to find it on youtube), it would have been the only no vote, which may be why she decided not to contest it. Just a little thing of not much import.
