By Timothy Yow, Chair
I wanted to take a moment to speak to the delegates, share a couple quick thoughts about the convention this weekend, and give a few shout-outs.
Let me start by saying “thank you” to all the delegates who voted to make Timothy Yow your next state party chair. It means a lot to know that so many are putting their confidence in me to lead this party for the next 2 years. I also want to thank those who voted “none of the above”. Furthermore I thank you because it reminds me that I have opportunity to be a better person and a better leader. I would hope that any who did vote NOTA would feel the liberty to come to me with their concerns and doubts so we can move forward together in unity. I hope I can restore your faith in me as I serve this party and its members in this current role.
The convention was absolutely amazing. Thank you to Andrew and the convention committee for pulling out all the stops to create a hugely successful event that other states should and will model their future conventions after. You all deserve the accolades that I and many members have bestowed upon you.
Also, thank you to the outgoing chair, Greg Stempfle, for conducting yet another practically flawless business meeting on Saturday. I fear I will never quite run a meeting like you have run so many since you were elected. All I can do is promise to try.
