Mommy at the Pierce County Convention

Mommy left home at 6:30AM this morning to go to the Pierce County Democratic Convention in Tacoma. She went that early because she was a volunteer helping delegates sign in. The sign in went a lot smoother than at the LD caucus last week, because they didn't have to elect more delegates, everyone just signed in and got a blue card indicating they were a delegate. Mommy came in her America in Solidarity t-shirt and helped out at their table. You can visit their website at www.americasolidarity.org to find out more about them. She managed to make it all the way through the day at the LD caucus, but today she felt tired and decided to leave early. She came home around noon and took a nap until 5PM--she must have been really tired! When she got on the internet tonight to read the local paper, she found a report about the convention: when they got to the point where they were to vote on resolutions, a lot of the delegates had left, and someone called for a quorum and they didn't have enough delegates to proceed! Of the almost 900 delegates who had signed in at 8AM, a little over 300 were left by 3PM. So the resolutions that were submitted will now have to be voted on at the state convention. This was the last thing Mommy was elected at the precinct caucus on February 9th to do as a delegate for Hillary Clinton, so she is now done with the caucus process as a direct participant.
