ALL On The Line

 

 

 

 

All On The Line is a national campaign to restore fairness to our democracy and ensure every American has an equal say in our government. This campaign will be driven by grassroots organizers who want to make a lasting impact on the future of their community, state, and country. Whether you care about making sure everyone has access to quality, affordable health care, achieving equal pay, reducing the gun violence that plagues our schools and communities, protecting voting rights, or dealing with the urgent threat of climate change, there is a fundamental structural barrier that prevents progress: manipulated electoral maps drawn with surgical precision by politicians to preserve their party’s political power and silence the will of the people. This practice—gerrymandering—is when politicians pick their voters instead of voters picking their elected officials and it impacts communities across the nation. The All On The Line campaign will fight against gerrymandering and push for fair maps in the next round of redistricting.

Proposed Amendment to the Standing Rules Passed with 2/3rds majority in session

New Section:

5. Candidate Forums

    A. Northeast Bexar County Democrats may, in anticipation of elections of interest to the membership, hold forums at which candidates will be given the opportunity to address the membership and answer questions posed by members in attendance. 

    B. Only candidates shall be allowed to speak to the audience as a whole at NEBCD candidate forums. However, candidates' authorized representatives are welcome to attend, distribute campaign literature and speak one-on-one with attendees.

Proposed Amendment to the Standing rules passed by 2/3rds majority in session

 

1.  Membership dues are $20.00 per year.

    New Clause:

    C. Membership begins on the date that the member's first dues payment is made. Thereafter, membership renews each year on the anniversary of the

first dues payment, provided that a new payment of dues is made. If a dues payment is made before the annual renewal date, the renewal of membership begins on the next anniversary of the membership. If the dues payment is made after the annual renewal date, the renewal begins on the previous anniversary of the membership. Members who fail to renew their membership by payment of dues within one year of their anniversary lose their membership and must reapply. In such case, the new membership anniversary shall be the date of their new payment of dues.
