Submitted February 9th, 2017 for consideration March 9th, 2017.

Bylaws Amendment to Elect Alternate Representatives

WHEREAS The Snohomish County Democratic Central Committee Bylaws section 3.01.02 allows the 44th LD Democrats to elect and send Alternate Representatives to the Executive Board to serve and vote in the absence of our Representatives, and

WHEREAS the Bylaws of the Washington State Democrats Article IX Paragraph B, says “…only elected precinct committee officers and precinct committee officers appointed after the organizational meeting shall vote for … any representative the legislative district organization is authorized to send to other Party organizations”, and

WHEREAS The 44th LD Bylaws Section 11.1 details the method for amending the 44th LD Bylaws, including the requirement for Meeting Notice that a proposed amendment must be submitted in writing at the previous regular meeting in order to be included on the agenda;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that We, The 44th Legislative District Democrats hereby amend our Bylaws Section 3.9.1, Bullet 3, by replacing the words “Secures a proxy” with “Notifies an Alternate Representative”, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we hereby amend our Bylaws to add a new section 14 after section 13, to read as follows.
