As you probably know, Council Member Joe Biernat has resigned in the wake of his conviction yesterday. The special election filling the resulting vacancy will occur on the following schedule:
I am calling this meeting, which can call a special endorsing convention as early as Friday 6 December (assuming that we can mail out the notice as soon as the meeting adjourns). I am guessing that the convention would occur on Saturday 7 December in the morning, or Monday 9 December in the evening; I have contacted the Ward 3 Coordinators, Olin Moore and Traci Scott, and we will have a recommendation ready for the Central Committee meeting.
