- Platform Committee Accepting Changes by Greg Stempfle
At the upcoming state convention, a portion of the business session will be devoted to the consideration of changes to the LPM platform. This year’s Platform Committee will be chaired by Greg Stempfle. Traditionally, one member from each of the 5 largest affiliates meets to discuss the proposed changes prior to the convention and to give its recommendation to the membership. This year, I will consider including members from outside these affiliates to serve on the committee. Please send any proposed changes to the party platform the Stempfle@hotmail.com. The current platform of the LPM is found at
Please note, there will be no bylaw changes debated at this convention. Only during odd-numbered years do these occur so that we can spend more time on candidate selection.
