Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus Announces At Large Delegate Slate



Dear Good Democrats:

This Saturday, May 17, 2008, we will meet in Tampa, Fla. to elect the At-Large Delegates and then the alternates. The Affirmative Action Committee of the FDP has set its goals. I am personally calling upon YOU to elect these good Democrats. I am not going to bore you with nonsense, but, I have included factual information to help you cast your vote

Please beware, that national media will be monitoring your vote. We the State GLBT Caucus are counting on you and I have marked those to be part of the 14 and the rest as alternates. You will also be called upon from our local chapter presidents as well as our regional directors to assure your vote and accountability.

I greatly appreciate your time and consideration regarding this imperative matter.
I look forward to the results and trust me , I will be watching the voting process.
My very best to all.
Respectfully,

Michael A. Albetta
President, Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus

As a reminder -

The allocation of these delegates was determined by the statewide vote of the January 29th Presidential Primary. The allocation breakdown is as follows:
Senator Hillary Clinton
24 At-Large Delegates - 14 Females / 10 Males & 3 At-Large Alternates - 1 Female / 2 Males
Senator John Edwards
1 At-Large Alternate - 1Female
Senator Barack Obama
16 At-Large Delegates - 10 Females / 6 Males, 2 At-Large Alternates - 1 Female / 1 Male
This is the final opportunity to fulfill our diversity goals. Please keep in mind that priority of consideration should be given to African Americans, Hispanics, Native Ameri­cans, Asian/Pacific Americans, members of the GLBT community, people with disabilities, youth, and military veterans.
