We Are Democrats: District 12 Senatorial Convention, March 29, 2008- Part 2

This was the view from our seats. We were here for a little over 13 hours due to about 87 precincts being challenged.


Mom survived, but her eyes were tired and red before all was said and done...


Our lovely, dedicated delegates from all the precincts in District 12 were finally (at 7:15 pm) given permission to vote on who would represent the precinct at the State Convention. It was unanimously decided that I would be the Delegate (because I am a teacher!?!) and my mom would be the alternate. We are both going to Austin June 5-7! I guess that means I'll miss the last day of school.

We then had to vote on resolutions, which took at least an hour. At Large Delegates had to be decided as well... so some people got a bit bored waiting and began to...

dance the Macarena. Democrats on very little sleep do strange things...

So, at 10:30 pm, after being at the Gaylord Texan since 9:00 am, we left. My last thought was...

Peace out (Is peace out? How about we make it the new black!).
