City Convention

Saturday 1 June 2002

10:00 a.m.

(registration opens at 9:00 a.m.)


Edison High School

700 22nd Avenue NE



Dear delegate or alternate:

This notice constitutes the official call for the Minneapolis City Convention. (Please note that the place is Edison High School, not Augsburg College as originally announced.) The agenda includes endorsing four candidates for the Board of Education, and electing Party officers.

You are receiving this notice because you were elected as a delegate or an alternate at your precinct caucus to your senate-district convention in March 2002. You are therefore also a delegate or alternate, as the case may be, to the City Convention. If you have moved out of the precinct that elected you in March 2002 to another precinct in Minneapolis, then you can still participate in your new precinct as the last alternate.


Volunteers Needed for Pre-Convention Committees

The pre-Convention committees (Arrangements, Credentials, Nominating, and Rules) will meet on Tuesday 28 May at 6:00 p.m. in the Jury Assembly Room, Hennepin County Government Center, 300 South Sixth Street, Minneapolis.

Any delegate may volunteer for any pre-Convention committee. Each ward may be represented on any pre-Convention committee by up two delegates. If more than two delegates from the same ward volunteer for the same committee, then that group will voluntarily assign up to two delegates from the ward to the committee. If those delegates cannot assign themselves voluntarily, then that ward’s entire delegation present (including those delegates serving on other committees) will elect their delegates to each committee. Any tie or other indecisive outcome will be decided by lot.


Accessibility, Special Accommodations

These sites are accessible to persons with disabilities. Please contact the Affirmative Action Officer, Thomas Ross (ph. 612.822.3384), if you need any auditory or visual aids, an interpreter, or any other special accommodation or arrangement. We have not arranged for child care.

If you have any special dietary or medical requirements, please bring with you what you need. We have not arranged for lunch or for concessions.


Thank you very much. Please write or call us if you have any questions; we look forward to seeing you on Saturday the first!

Very truly yours,

Brian Melendez
