Brian Setzler, the President of the Cascadia Chapter of the Pacific Green Party of Oregon, sat down earlier this evening with Your Intrepid Reporter.
The meeting took place at my request. I asked Brian whether he would would nominate me for U.S. Congress, Third District of Oregon, and he declined. He added he would not vote for me at the convention.
When I returned home I telephoned Cascadia Chapter Member Bob McGown, who accepted the responsibility of delivering a nominating speech at the Portland state convention, provided he can get there.
So, there is some doubt to the uninformed mind whether the Cascadia Chapter can be said to exist under the formal order excluding the secretary of teh Chapter from attending meetings of the Membership that are open to the public.
[and I misspell the word ‘the’ with intention afore or abast I forget -hand.]
It was wholly appropriate that the conversation ended with my fellow Cascadia Chapter officer saying,
You don’t listen to others; you just interrupted me!
and my replying,
I interrupted you, with some heat, because you just said, “No one is calling you crazy,” when that is the statement of a judge. Do you need the document, where it says, danger to self or others? A judge said, no wrote, that; but you say, “No one is calling you crazy,” and are upset that I raise my voice and interrupt.
