The Incident

This is a preliminary finding regarding an unfortunate incident at our Legislative District Caucus on April 17, 2016.
Most importantly, we are sorry for the incident, and we regret that several of our neighbors chose to attack each other with inappropriate responses.
EVERYONE: CEASE AND DESIST FROM ALL ATTACKS.
The root cause of the incident happened at 1:30PM on March 26th, when the precinct in question elected delegates and alternates BEFORE ALLOCATING THEM! It began from a common human error: failure to follow instructions.

Endorsements

The 44th LD Democrats endorsed the following candidates:
