Democrats talk changes to bylaws

Seneca County Democratic Executive Committee is to hold an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast fundraiser 8 a.m.-noon Saturday at Somerset Reception Center, 382 S. Huron St. Tickets are $7.50 in advance and $8 at the door. Children younger than 10 are free.

The committee also discussed several changes to the bylaws. Commitee member Dean Henry reported that since the bylaws committee did not reach a consensus on the changes, they were to be brought to the executive committee.

Among possible additions were the incorporation of the Central Committee list of responsibilities, the insertion of the oath of office, adding the function of the Cardinal Club and adding a screening committee for making decisions on endorsements.

The committee decided to consider the changes and discuss them further at the next meeting.

The committee also discussed possible endorsement of two candidates in the November general election.

A representative from AFL-CIO is to give a presentation on “right to work” legislation at the next meeting.

The 58th annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner is at 6 p.m. Oct. 24 at the American Legion in New Riegel, with dinner at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are $25 a person.

The speaker is to be announced.
