[20:15:18] <@Bosun> Nothing really to report. If we want to push the bylaws change, we can. Not a hill I want to die on. [20:15:47] <yari> Oh, can we do IDs? Did we already? [20:15:53] <yari> Rose Klein, California [20:16:19] <@Bosun> Or we can take our time and write a great argument and publish it. [20:16:23] <pmchi> Mitch Davilo, Illinois [20:16:24] <Olivia_> Olivia Kristiann, volunteer [20:16:29] <@Bosun> Sorry no - you ar chair, [20:16:52] <@Bosun> Joseph Klein, USPP chair [20:17:14] <@Bosun> Yari is chair. [20:17:18] <yari> welcome welcome, hope everyone had a good holiday [20:17:36] <yari> So Bosun - you were talking about the bylaws change [20:17:48] <yari> Your preference, it sounds like, it so take our time with the change? [20:18:34] <@Bosun> Yes, take our time and make it a clear argument. [20:18:59] <@Bosun> It can languish on the table for now. [20:19:17] <@Bosun> Do you agree? [20:19:35] <yari> That makes sense. Last I recall, we needed to create a procedure for determining eligibility of deligations [20:20:48] <@Bosun> Yes. This can be fun. Make the rules up to be Pirate like. [20:21:21] <@Bosun> An open and public procedure. [20:21:47] <yari> Sounds good. Tabled for next time, and I think that next week I'd like us to determine a loose deadline for its creation [20:22:18] <@Bosun> How is Mitch's campaign so far - saw the twitter. [20:22:27] <yari> An excellent question! [20:22:33] <yari> Pacha? [20:22:37] <yari> Pmchi? [20:22:54] <yari> I hate how it autocorrects that for some reason [20:23:03] <pmchi> I talked to a photographer to get some actual shots done. So that’ll be happening in the next week or so [20:23:28] <yari> Exciting! [20:23:44] <Olivia_> Things are moving! [20:23:45] <@Bosun> Wow. Keep track of all your expenses. [20:24:00] <yari> ^ a good point [20:24:11] <pmchi> I’ll have a little black book for every expense [20:24:14] <Olivia_> receipts [20:24:30] <pmchi> ^^ [20:24:36] <@Bosun> Good accounting is an act of transparency. [20:25:02] <pmchi> Also wore some pirate party gear today, got a few questions. Baby steps but people are curious! [20:25:17] <pmchi> Bosun: 100% [20:25:57] <@Bosun> We need to get you t-shirts. [20:26:23] <pmchi> Yard signs too [20:26:54] <pmchi> Not that they need to come right away, just was thinking about all the little things hahaha [20:27:05] <yari> Good to think about [20:27:22] <Olivia_> How about a website link for campaigning? Will it be a local url link for the Chicago or Illinois Party or a subdomain tie to the USPP website link> [20:27:28] <@Bosun> The Illinois flag and seal looks like a chicken. Maybe a state outline for the Pirate logo? [20:27:57] <pmchi> Honestly I’ll likely use the Chicago flag before the Illinois flag [20:28:11] <pmchi> Not just person reasons, but aesthetic purposes [20:28:15] <pmchi> Like you said, chicken flag [20:28:43] <yari> And people associate strongly with the Chicago flag [20:28:46] <pmchi> The state outline is an excellent idea [20:29:20] <@Bosun> Is any part of your district outside Chicago? [20:30:09] <pmchi> Yeah, about half in half out. Somehow all the white neighborhoods ended up in the same district [20:30:16] <pmchi> Classic gerrymandering, ya know? [20:30:22] <yari> classic [20:30:49] <yari> Then having both would definitely be good [20:31:53] <yari> Pmchi do we know the answer to Olivia's question about the website? [20:32:11] <@Bosun> Stae outline - good idea - I have pirate flag art - i'll see about dropping the outline in and in SVG and PDF format. [20:33:06] <yari> Pmchi bosun if you don't mind waiting until after the 15th, I can make the svg pretty easily [20:33:07] <pmchi> No website yet. I assume it would be connected to the USPP since it’s a federal office [20:33:51] <Olivia_> Can you email me later when it's done one with a transparent background I can email the guy who runs the Pirate Party graphic generator I use for announcements and other Parties do too. [20:33:52] <pmchi> It might look odd connecting my campaign to the Chicago or Illinois PP [20:33:53] <@Bosun> I can trow something together but I will need to invoice you as an in kind donation. [20:33:58] <@Bosun> throw [20:34:39] <@Bosun> Your and independent - pirate in fine print. [20:34:52] <@Bosun> an .. independent [20:35:36] <pmchi> Wouldn’t, with signature requirements met, it be as a member of the Pirate Party, not just independent? [20:35:44] <@Bosun> Can't type and keep up with my election feed. [20:36:07] <Olivia_> The Assange graphic I made days ago with the USPP flag on it. Others have the flag with text too if you want. When I went looking for ones for USPP and MassPirates I only got ones with just the flag for now. [20:36:41] <Olivia_> It has to have a transparent background though. [20:37:31] <yari> It sounds like we have three methods of producing this one graphic: through Olivia, through myself, and Bosun [20:37:38] <yari> So I think its covered [20:37:44] <yari> One way or the other [20:37:52] <Olivia_> https://twitter.com/PPbyOlivia/status/1345863499981975552 [20:37:59] <@Bosun> Yes. When met. It will give you a PR boost as the press does their clever arrgs ... but play it strait and just be open and serious. They will resect you. [20:38:14] <@Bosun> respect. [20:38:24] <Olivia_> It's a graphic generator MEP's use it too. [20:38:47] <@Bosun> I use illustrator. [20:39:07] <Olivia_> My main graphic and video editor is Canva. [20:39:29] <yari> okay we need to wrap up [20:39:38] <@Bosun> OK. [20:39:56] <yari> Uh, Bosun, you have options available for the graphic [20:40:03] <@Bosun> we need to wite - draft by next week. [20:40:15] <@Bosun> write [20:40:18] <yari> sounds good. [20:40:24] <yari> Send a doc? [20:40:33] <@Bosun> yeah [20:40:50] <yari> Okay. Any other pressing issues? [20:40:57] <yari> Before we adjourn [20:41:12] <Olivia_> no I don't think [20:41:57] <yari> Hearing none, could we have a motion? [20:42:04] <@Bosun> do - my toes are crossed that Mitch (Majority Leader) is very sad tomorrow [20:42:09] <@Bosun> Move adjourn [20:42:23] <yari> Bosun I agree with you [20:42:40] <pmchi> I’m hoping to be the happiest Mitch in all the land tomorrow! The other one is in for a bad day [20:43:01] <@Bosun> Good night. [20:43:03] <yari> Motion is on the table [20:43:07] <yari> 2nd? [20:43:07] <pmchi> 2nd [20:43:10] <yari> cool [20:43:12] <yari> gnight [20:43:12] <Olivia_> 3rd [20:43:21] <Olivia_> Goodnight everyone! [20:43:22] <@Bosun> 4th 5th [20:43:25] <yari> So adjourned [20:43:30] <@Bosun> goodnight. [20:43:38] <pmchi> Goodnight everyone! Stay safe [20:43:39] <yari> Bosun can you post? [20:43:48] <@Bosun> yes. [20:43:50] <yari> Thank you!
