Resolutions Adopted by the Central Committee of the

San Mateo County Democratic Party

   Resolutions express the position of the San Mateo County Democratic Party.   Additionally, they may be an attempt to influence the actions of public officials and the public.   They have a preordained format (three “whereas” clauses and one or two “therefore” clauses.    A regular resolution is read to the Central Committee at the first meeting where it is introduced, and a majority of the membership must support it at the next meeting when it is voted on.  An urgent resolution is voted on at the meeting where it is first introduced and must win by a two thirds vote.  Elected delegates, alternates and ex-officios may introduce resolution.

   A workshop on You Say You Want a Resolution? was presented on June 22, 2022 that explains what is a resolution, what it's not and why it uses funny language.  Click here for the slides and here for the video recording.
