Bylaws Amendments for Action December 11th

At the November meeting, members of the Administration Committee presented proposed changes to the bylaws, unanimously recommended by the Administration Committee. They will be up for discussion and action at the December meeting. These are time-sensitive in that we have an Organizational meeting coming up in February, as determined last August.

There are two groups of amendments proposed, one having to do with qualifications of officers and election procedures, and the other having to do with protecting the integrity of our data resources. The marked up bylaws are attached, and here are the highlights.

Volunteer Highlight - October 2014

Gil and Gloria Luzader serve as Precinct Committee People for Multnomah County Democratic Party in House District 44. HD44 District Leader Tom Karwaki describes Gil and Gloria as "the backbone of St Johns," and says "Gil faithfully hands out four or five hundred slate cards each election, and Gloria makes about five hundred get-out-the-vote calls." The Luzaders both participate in our monthly General Meetings, and both help at Democratic booths and in the St Johns Parade. Gil has volunteered over three hundred hours in Senator Jeff Merkley's office over the past two years.

And like most good Democrats, they also serve their community more broadly. Both Gil and Gloria are leaders of the St Johns Main Street Foot Patrol. Both have been on the board of the St Johns Neighborhood Association and Gloria is active with the North Portland Public Safety Action Committee.

Multnomah County Democratic Party appreciates their service.
