When I got there they were already
working on the platform. The woman on the stage was explaining that the
platform committee had worked for more than a year on getting input
from everybody that had something to change.
Greg Garrett explained that some
presentations would be made on the key changes since the previous
version and then input would be taken from the floor. After that the
platform committee would say how to move forward.
Most of these speakers were saying
things like "our change from the previous version is a dramatic
improvement. Please vote for the amended platform."
The Latino Caucus was the only group
that rose to speak as a collective on changes to the platform.
