Brothers,

HERE COMES THE CONVENTION! THIS IS A CRAZY EXCITING TIME FOR ME BECAUSE I'M UP FOR STATE DEPUTY!!!

I can't believe I'm saying that. It just seems like yesterday that I was looking at you right after being elected as your Warden like a "deer in the headlights." I remember wondering what have I gotten myself into and then needing a truck to get all of the Warden's gear home. Good thing I had a truck! Then I packed it all in my truck and I had no room left for my wife...she needed to ride home with a friend. Good times! Times I'll always remember! I'm so Blessed and so honored to have served you all of these years! So dry your tears and I'll dry mine and I'll remind you about the important Convention stuff.

We only have 90% of the State Per Capita collected so far this year, which means there are 18 Councils that haven't paid. Our State By-Laws are clear that a Council that is not current with the Per Capita payment cannot be seated at the State Convention. That would be a shame to have to turn a Council away. As of today, I had to notify two Councils who submitted Certificates of Election that their Per Capita dues need to be paid or their delegates to the Convention cannot be seated. YIKES! GET THESE PAID ALREADY!

Every Council who is attending the State Convention will need to have submitted a Certificate of Election to me. We need that for you to actively participate and to be paid Mileage and Per Diem after the meeting.

May 5th was our cut-off for names that will be read at the Necrology Mass at the Convention.  Any names we receive now will be read at next year's Necrology Mass.

Finally, I need your votes for State Deputy. The Las Vegas odds makers are only giving me a 51% chance of making Washington State Deputy, AS LONG AS I RUN UNAPPOSED, so I need your vote!

God Bless you and see you at the Convention!

  

Vivat Jesus!
