Want to reform the Democratic Texas Two Step? changethecaucus.org has announced a meeting for 9-11 AM Friday, June 25, 2010, at the State Convention in Room 225 D-E, American Bank Center.

Check HERE for the full notice.

Several precincts have be able to get resolutions passed in their March conventions proposing changes to the rules, which in turn then made it through then the process approval at senatorial district, or county conventions.   They are to be considered next by the Rules Committee at the State Convention.

Change the Caucus Org needs volunteers to collect signatures on a petition, to persuade folks to get the party rules changed.

They are also looking for folks to run for election to the Rules Committee who are interested in changing the Party Rules.

If you have questions or you can help collect signatures on Friday or Saturday, please contact Scott Cobb by email at scottcobb99@gmail.com. You can also call Scott at 512 552 4743 or Linda Burgess at 512 529 7235.

As we reported on February 28th, Change the Caucus.org was asking folks to take and present a resolution, ending the Texas Two Step, to their precinct conventions on March 2nd.  Yesterday they reported:

“Resolution to Reform the Texas Two Step System Passes Precinct 231 in SD 14 in Travis County”

They are asking anyone else who may have taken and presented the resolution to their precinct to inform them of the results.

In the mean time, Politico has tallied the election results for Governor HERE.

The election is now going to be (D) White against (R) Perry. Take a closer look at the map and note how many folks voted Republican versus Democrat.

Imagine the future.

Change the Caucus has produced testimony at the TDP hearings in Austin November 14th. They are, unfortunately, only in Video. However, if you have that capability, see:

Video: Tory Lauterbach Testifying at the TDP Hearing on the Primary-Caucus System in Austin.

Tory Lauterbach is president of the Texas College Democrats and a 24-year-old law student at the University of Texas at Austin. She testified to the committee in her personal capacity as a Texas Democrat.

Video of Jim Mattox Testifying Against the Texas Two-Step at Austin Hearing on November 14

November 21, 2008 by End the Texas Two Step   

 Five days before his death on November 19, Jim Mattox testified to the TDP Advisory Committee on the Convention/Caucus. He patiently waited more than two hours for his turn to speak. When his turn finally came, he strongly criticized the Texas Two-Step as an “unfair” system. The second part of his testimony contains some of his best points, so be sure to watch both parts.
