I must now move forward to bring to resolution the pending charges against some of the Central Committee officers. I have sent shortened, summarized versions of the charges to the named officers.
I would like to have a meeting with the named officers of the VCDCC along with the leaders of the VDP this week. I am proposing Friday, February 10, 2012, at 1:00 PM. Ii has been suggested that we meet in the VCDCC headquarters conference room, if it could be made available to us. If it is not available to us, I will select another site in Evansville.
It is my goal that the officers named in the charges, individually or collectively, with counsel from you leaders, can come to a proposal for the resolution of the charges. I will submit any such proposal(s) to the Eighth District Democratic Party Central Committee.
I incite the officers named in the charges to bring one council or counsel if desired.
I assure all of you that, while I have thoughts as to what I think it will take to resolve these issues with the 8th DCC, I have no preset agenda for resolution. I only want these issues resolved in the best interests of all Vanderburgh County Democrats. It has festered too long.
If no resolution is proposed or any named officer fails to submit a proposed resolution acceptable to the 8th DCC, I will appoint a fact finding committee to interview all relevant witnesses, review any relevant evidence and submit findings of fact, with or without recommendations, to the 8th DCC for the resolution of any charges remaining unresolved.
Please confirm this communication as soon as you can. If you wish another email address for the Party communications, please advise me. If I don’t receive notice as to availability of the VCDCC headquarters by Wednesday, I will arrange another site in Vanderburgh County and notify you.
Thank you for all you do for our Party.
S. Anthony Long,
Eighth District Democrat Chair
“…And our duty as a party is not to our party alone, but to the Nation, and, indeed., to all mankind. Our duty is not merely the preservation of political power but the preservation of peace and freedom.
So let us not be petty when our cause is so great. Let us not quarrel amongst ourselves when our Nation’s future is at stake. Let us stand together with renewed confidence in our cause–united in our heritage of the past and our hopes for the future–and determined that this land we love shall lead all mankind into new frontiers of peace and abundance.”
