Records Move

On April 29, 2017, D Nick Dunbar arrived in Parker Colorado after driving a U-Haul from the Party headquarters in Alexandria Virginia with the entirety of the Party archives for organization supervision by Committee Chair Caryn Ann Harlos. This move was authorized through the following motion started via email ballot on March 24, 2017 and co-sponsored by LNC members Caryn Ann Harlos, Daniel Hayes, Brett Bittner, and David Demarest:

""Motion:"" Move to budget an additional $5,000 (budget line 90) to relocate the historical records in the Duke Street basement and in the off-site storage facility to a location in Colorado to be determined by Historical Preservation Committee Chair. The facility will be paid by for and under the control of the LNC and will be obtained at a cost equal or less to the price paid for the similar facility in Virginia. The Executive Director will be directed to send out up to two fundraising emails to cover this expense and the prior budgeted Historical Committee expense (credit to budget line 25).

Voting "aye": Bilyeu, Bittner, Demarest, Hagan, Harlos, Hayes, Goldstein, Lark, Marsh, Sarwark, Starchild, Zohra.

""Voting "nay":"" Katz, Mattson.

""Express Abstention:"" Redpath.
