The West Virginia State Democratic Convention

So I am back from attending the state party convention in Charleston (my apologies for taking so long to approve the comments - didn't touch a computer while I was away). I might have more to say about it tomorrow. Actually I am sure I will. But for now I'll just say it was a great experience in that it was exciting to see so many people so energized about working to improve their state. The delegates were an interesting mix, and it was interesting to see the processes play out and be refreshingly democratic in a little "d" sense (this convention was the first of its kind) - though sure, the rules adopted at the convention were very friendly to the powers that be. I'm happy to report that both of the people elected by the 1st congressional district caucus to be Obama delegates at the national convention come from Mon County - Caprice Roberts and Jon Blair Hunter. And Mon County's own Charlene Marshall will also be a delegate for Obama in Denver, as a PLEO.

Not everything came as such pleasant surprises, but maybe I'll talk about that tomorrow. In the mean time, if you are looking for news from the convention look for stories next week on Mike Romano being kicked out of office as the state party's treasurer.
