Do we have an archive of MWP platforms? Should we maybe have those on the website?

    Ah Ha! I had thought that the Platform on the website WAS the new platform because I thought I noticed some changes. For instance, I couldn’t find the plank on the 2nd Amendment and Guns that I remember being there a few months ago. I must be very confused.

    Do we have an internal newsletter or newspaper or blog responsible for communicating party matters to party members? If not, we really need one. I couldn’t get to the convention, and I have no clue what happened there :-/

    As one who attended this year’s convention in May, I believe we should. When we voted on the upcoming platform, we made quite a few additions, omissions, set out mission statements for public policies, and at times complete removal or rearranging of passages. I must say, we really needed all 8 hours scheduled to do the job. As of now, I do find myself disappointed at the failed materialization of the voted platform on the website; but to be honest, we did boot many things back to committee to work on and that can take a while for a crew of volunteers. As for the archives (which I do not believe exist right now), that should be simple enough to create since all the files can be stored in PDF files and posted on the internet for public access. Granted, some platforms from yester years may be lost in obscurity, but there’s no time like the present to start now. I know that we can still provide the party platform of 2010 since that remains on the Facebook page, the pre-May 2016 platform and the current, unpublished platform, which can make a decent start to what I hope to be an impressive accumulation of past thoughts and evident advancements.
