Today's noon meeting at the outpost had fair attendance. The majority of the attendees seemed to be in opposition to CPAC's position supporting incorporation. The following is a report from my notes produced as accurately as possible.
Many questions were asked involving CPAC’s mission in Candlewick, their finances and filings, the membership requirements, and several other issues.
When the current treasurer took over the cash balance was $3,166.84. Finances were discussed and it was indicated the current cash on hand is $574.34. A $2,500 retainer was just paid to a law firm working on CPAC’s issues.
Two positions needed to be filled in CPAC offices, one being co-chairman and the other sergeant at arms. The Pride group put forward Mary Budreau for the co-chair with Tony Corso the other nominee. Mary, who is coincidentally the Pride's co-chairperson as well, was elected to the post. Karl Steiskal, the other co-chairperson of the Pride, was put forward for the position sergeant at arms. He also won his position. They are both fine, intelligent people who will do well with CPAC's responsibilities.
October 13th will be the target date for a meet the candidates night here in Candlewick. Hopefully CPAC can bring together some good candidates to answer our questions regarding their issue stands.
The meeting lasted about an hour total with a pretty good give and take on the incorporation movement and CPAC’s involvement to date. This will be an ongoing contentious issue it would appear.
