The Republican Liberty Caucus of California successfully held its second annual convention meeting of 2009 in conjunction with the California Republican Party Convention. The CRP Convention was held the weekend of September 25-27, which provided the RLCCA with a unique opportunity to hold a Convention Meeting and build relationships with fellow California Republicans.
The RLCCA Convention Meeting took place on Saturday, September 26. With several new faces and our growing leadership, comradery and activism filled the room. During the meeting, new By-laws revisions were passed unanimously.
All weekend long, the RLC offered an exhibitor booth along side other volunteer organizations and candidates running for state office. The World’s Smallest Political Quiz was again administered at our table, with the results, as expected, placing the majority of fellow California Republican quiz takers in the libertarian quadrant. New to this years convention was the RLCCA Voter Recommendation Guide. The guide focus was on two proposed state party rules and a resolution. There was no action taken by CRP Delegates on the rules, but the resolution passed!
The California Republican Party voted nearly unanimously in support of HR 1207 and S 604, The Federal Reserve Transparency and Sunshine Acts. The resolution was sponsored by the Alameda County and Sonoma County GOPs, and co-sponsored by the Republican Liberty Caucus of California, RLC-endorsed Congressman Tom McClintock, State Assemblyman and U.S. Senate candidate Chuck DeVore, as well as a number of CRP Delegates.
The California Republican Party supporting an audit of the Federal Reserve was a shining moment for the RLCCA and the Liberty Movement. Chuck DeVore, a tremendous supporter of auditing the Federal Reserve, spoke passionately on behalf of the resolution during the resolution committee meeting. Immediately after Chuck DeVore spoke, the Resolution Committee voted unanimously to send the resolution to the floor of the convention. Thanks Chuck!
All weekend long, members of the Republican Liberty Caucus could be seen at our exhibitor booth, CRP committee meetings, County Chairman and Treasurer meetings, CRP Convention floor, and many other party functions and meetings. We certainly made sure the Liberty Movement was active throughout the weekend. And it paid off with our co-sponsored resolution passing overwhelmingly.
The Republican Liberty Caucus of California would like to thank all our members and volunteers who showed up to the convention. We could not have done it without your dedication! We would also like to thank the California Republican Party for holding the Convention and so overwhelmingly supporting the resolution; and U.S. Senate Candidate Chuck DeVore for his support.
2010 elections are right around the corner and the RLC CA is poised to make a difference! If you haven’t yet done so, please join the RLC today!
