End of Notice, Beginning of Explanation
PS Q: Why is Dave Duncan sending this, instead of David Acheson, or Bonnie Morrow (the new party vice chair, as of November 17th)?
A: Good question. If you are wondering, feel free to read on. If not feel free to stop. 🙂 The duly submitted petition, authorized by Bylaw 8.C was submitted days ago on November 29th. Chairman Acheson is tied up with the Novell/Microsoft trial and has had limited communication ability. He authorized Kirby and me (taking us up on previous pledges we made to help in any way we can) to work with Vice Chair Bonnie Morrow on this, but we have not been able to contact her over the last few days. Today is the last day this notice can go out, so I am forced to proceed, since it is called by a petition I helped initiate. A post card noticing the meeting has already been sent out. Some of you may have already received it.

Feel free to reply to this email with concerns or complaints. I’m happy to respond as best I can, starting tomorrow. I have a plane to catch this evening.

This is sent to all CC members with an email address in the latest listing I have from the party secretary.

For your reference, the email to Bonnie from David Acheson:
Date: Thu, 1 Dec 2011 21:33:26 -0700
Subject: Bonnie can you work with Kirby and Dave to get an email out
From: David Acheson <dacheson@gmail.com>
To: Bonnie Morrow <bonnie4provo@gmail.com>, Dave Duncan <dave@duncans.org>,
	Kirby Glad <kirbyglad@comcast.net>

under your signature, announcing the meeting on Dec 10.

Dave and Kirby can direct you.

David Acheson
