Dear Fellow Democrats,
It has become clear that the original Call to Convention that was supposed to be sent on November 13th was not properly mailed. Our goal as Democrats is always to open our party and welcome all who want to participate. Without proper notice, this is not possible.
As a result, I have consulted with the Michigan Democratic Party and received permission to reschedule our Convention so that everyone can receive proper two weeks notice. We must have our Convention before the end of the year, so please stay tuned for the new date and time.
I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and problems this has generated.
We had a very successful election year and many people gave their time and talents to make Oakland County the epicenter of Michigan’s Blue Wave. I hope we can build on this momentum going forward.
Vicki Barnett, Chair
