This email serves as my notice of availability to serve as a GPCA GPUS
Delegate for a second two year term.

My specific interests for Delegation activities during the next two years

development from the 2009 McKinney/Clemente campaign, helping develop GPCA
Bylaws updates that more accurately reflect Delegation standing in the GPCA and
the GPCA's GPUS affiliation; review and development of revised Presidential
Nominating Convention delegates selection procedures and policies; Developing

Primary Election ballot; possibly continuing as observer to the CCC; and
