[9:17pm] pmchi: ICYMI On Nov. 2nd in Philadelphia, Larry West, running as a member of the “Philadelphia Pirate Party”, won an electoral race as “Judge of Elections”. This makes Larry the second Pirate ever elected to public office in the United States. I spoke to him briefly previously, but last time I reached out he never returned my message. So, I would invite him again to resume discussions, but I would prefer if someone else reaches out this time so as [9:17pm] pmchi: I’m not pestering him.

I reached out via his page on Facebook [9:22pm] yari: okay so any volunteers for that should contact you [9:22pm] Sayyida: @pmchi: seems to be a trend with elected officials. I would like to extend our congratulations and support [9:23pm] Sayyida: Should I ask him to join in with USPP meetings? What is the end goal with contacting Larry, judge of elections? [9:23pm] pmchi: On the subject of elections, I’d like to motion to create a section on the website for “Pirates in elected offices” or “Elected Pirates” [9:24pm] jokeefe: Make a connection and ask how we can help him and the Phily Pirates.

Two is more than none [9:24pm] yari: Sayyida sounds like you're taking this on, and thank you. [9:24pm] jokeefe: Interviewing him could be a good blog post/video [9:24pm] Sayyida: @jokeefe: understood [9:26pm] Sayyida: I will be in contact this week, one way or another.

If there are any seconds to this we can go to debate or discussion. [9:28pm] Joe: 2nd [9:28pm] yari: moved and seconded. [9:28pm] yari: any discussion or debate? [9:29pm] yari: should this go to a committee? [9:29pm] yari: or a specific person? [9:29pm] jokeefe: Suggest it also include any pirate appointed to a public office. [9:29pm] yari: thank you jokeefe [9:29pm] pmchi: Thank you jokeefe I agree. We should recognize and promote ALL Pirates in offices [9:29pm] Sayyida: jokeefe: you mean international as well or just those in the US? [9:29pm] Wodensday: Any Pirate of a US office that isn't one of ours within the USPP [9:29pm] pmchi: In the US [9:30pm] Wodensday: To cover all our bases [9:30pm] jokeefe: I was thinking in a US government office at whatever level Sayyida. [9:30pm] Sayyida: When I hear all I thought to literally, my apologies it’s one of those days [9:31pm] jokeefe: might also include past candidates with how they did [9:31pm] jokeefe: we should keep track of that info too [9:31pm] Bosun: All within our realm. [9:31pm] yari: if there any further discussion? [9:31pm] yari: *is there any further discussion? [9:31pm] yari: does anyone have a suggestion for how this may be done? [9:32pm] yari: (who should do it? [9:32pm] Sayyida: Not it. [9:33pm] Bosun: I can give you my stats on my magnificent defeats. [9:33pm] Radiojoe left the chat room. (connection closed) [9:33pm] Wodensday: I don't know if history is within our current scope, though we should make a note of that [9:33pm] Wodensday: For now we should try to keep a list of current governmental pirates [9:34pm] Sayyida: I fully believe this needs to be done, but who with keys to the website has time to do it [9:34pm] Wodensday: If need be, we can defer this to outreach, though I can't guarantee it might be our first priority. [9:34pm] pmchi: We should keep note of elections participated in and in which states, victory or fail, at the very least [9:34pm] yari: I can take this on, actually. Just looking at my task list it seems doable - again, it will be a bit lower down on that list though. [9:35pm] Sayyida: pmchi: as we are a party of transparency. ALL attempts should be for view [9:35pm] pmchi: Shows us Pirates aren’t for a lack of trying! [9:35pm] yari: are there any objections to adding this to my (the chair's) task list? [9:35pm] Sayyida: None from WI [9:36pm] pmchi: None from IL [9:36pm] Wodensday: None here [9:36pm] yari: is there any further discussion?

I will now accept motions with regard to that topic. [9:40pm] pmchi: Motion to discuss [9:41pm] Joe left the chat room. (connection closed) [9:41pm] Wodensday: Unfortunately, I have not had any time to revamp the wording of this motion. [9:41pm] yari: pmchi, discussing the same motion that was on table from last time? [9:41pm] Joe joined the chat room. [9:41pm] yari: Wodensday good to know. [9:42pm] pmchi: In that case, nevermind I will withdraw my motion [9:42pm] Wodensday: Unless pmchi or someone else has an idea of how to rewrite this motion, I wouldn't mind re-tabling this. I apologize. [9:42pm] yari: that sounds like a motion to table for another week. Is that correct? [9:42pm] Bosun: Fix it and bring it next time. [9:42pm] Wodensday: That wasn't necessarily one, but I shall. Motion to table another week. [9:42pm] Bosun: I suggest. [9:43pm] yari: 2nds?

[9:48pm] yari: I was going to say, we didn't officially table it last time but it was... kind of tabled. [9:49pm] jokeefe: Withdraw for later consideration [9:49pm] jokeefe: Withdrawn … [9:50pm] Sayyida: Because as far as I understood, phrasing [9:50pm] yari: My understanding, jokeefe, is we don't have the proposal yet. [9:50pm] jokeefe: thanks [9:51pm] yari: We are on to new business. [9:52pm] yari: At this time I will accept any and all motions from the members of the PNC.
