TMN’s Scott Cobb has been appointed to the 2006 TDP Chair’s Advisory Committee on the Platform. The committee’s first meeting is Wednesday, May 17, at 10 AM in the AFL-CIO building in Austin. The official party platform will be drafted and approved by the Platform Committee elected by the senatorial district caucuses at the state convention in Ft. Worth. The advisory committee is an informal group. It is virtually impossible to draft a coherent platform from scratch during the convention between 8 am on Saturday morning and the time the convention adjourns, so the advisory committee is tasked to draft a working document that the elected Platform Committee may choose to consider at the convention.
If any Democrats would like to make suggestions for the 2004 platform, please send ideas to Scott Cobb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2004 platform endorsed a moratorium on executions.
