Today was a proud day at the SEC meeting for the people who are the rank and file of this party. More than once we basked in the glory of being the party that for the past 80 years or so has worked for the things that have pushed this country forward, Social Security, Civil Rights, Regulations that kept the country on an even keel for more than 50 years and saw the largest expansion of the middle class on record. Many of the things that Senator Edward Kennedy stood for.
It was a hard five hours but for the most part I was very proud of the myriad of resolutions that percolated up from precincts all over the state that passed at the SEC meeting today. Here are a few highlights:
First off Delmas Parker presented a heart warming statement of condolences and tribute to the late Senator Kennedy which we voted to adopt.
