The plan is to have it pay for itself over time with tiered donations. (Each tier could be named after renowned Libertarian philosophers.)

Editorial Notes:

1)     At the date and time of this meeting, Adrian still did not have (according to Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised) the authority to propose changes to the CCCLP’s Constitution and Bylaws.  When he claimed that power, he was exceeding his authority.  The matter was still being actively handled by the duly-appointed Bylaws Committee; as a result, the permission for any CCCLP Member to propose amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws was superseded by, and subordinate to, the authority of the Bylaws Committee.  When I officially notified Adrian that his actions were in violation of RONR, he justified his actions with claims that turned out to be false.  As a result, Adrian’s claims that the County Central Committee had a new set of Bylaws was a fraud that he perpetrated against not only the County Central Committee, but because they were reported to the California State LP as being the “official” bylaws, he perpetrated fraud against the state LP as well.  This is a clear violation of the Non-Agression Principle, and grounds for expulsion from the Party.

2)     As a result of his failure to appropriately implement amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws, his implementation of virtual meetings for the purpose of conducting Business fails to comply with the guidelines set in RONR.  Adrian was present, as Vice-Chair, of the meeting on January 30, 2022, when the Parliamentarian informed the Chair of this restriction under RONR, so Adrian acted this way willfully, and not by accident.

3)     The costs associated with the new website will need to be born by the CCC even if there are inadequate donations.  This approach to paying for the web site is wishful thinking.

4)     There already is a Google Drive available for use of the ExCom and the Members.  It covers more than the Agendas and Minutes.

5)     I would like to believe that there is no information that is so sensitive it should only be known by the ExCom.  That such a communications channel should be considered, let alone established, is indicative of authoritarian paranoia.

6)     The creation of a new distribution list (via Google Groups) was in fact a pointed failure, and, due to the manner in which it was implemented, it led to violations of the State LP’s bylaws.  Those violations are sufficient to cause the CCCLP to be declared “inactive”.

7)     RONR is quite clear that a Member or Officer of an organization can get into trouble if they refer to others in the organization by name (instead of by title), while addressing the body.  The Secretary repeatedly refers to “Mr. Malagon” when she is supposed to be referring to “the Chair”; there were other violations of this same principal as well.  These actions are sufficient cause for the Secretary to be officially removed from a meeting.

Respectfully submitted,

Kurt Schultz

Chairman of the CCCLP Bylaws Committee
