Have you read the statutes for yourself? Have you come to your own conclusion? Or, are you listening to those that put you in this situation and never informed you of the statute that was signed 24 May 2023?
When and where did the governing bodies, duly informed, have the opportunity to comply with the party’s own constitution and rules? Did the governing bodies know that there was a problem? Did the governing bodies have the opportunity to discuss and review what was submitted to the Secretary of State?
I submit to you that if you take the time to think this through, for yourself, and fully understand the implications, you will conclude that specific MNDFL, in cooperation with nefarious political actors, intend all Republicans (Minnesota Citizens) harm and interfere with the 2024 election cycle. David Hann’s recent weak attempt to resolve this issue has actually violated our constitution, old and wrongly filed new, and puts the MNDFL Secretary of State, Steve Simon, squarely within the statutes language to remove major party status.
Minnesota Session Laws – 2023, Regular Session

RE: EMERGENCY MEETING OF THE STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE
Pursuant to Article II, Section 2 of the RPM Bylaws, a meeting of the State Central Committee is hereby called by a minimum of 25% of the Delegates of the State Central Committee who are from no fewer than 3 Congressional Districts.
These delegates believe there is a critical need for the State Central Committee to meet and take ALL necessary action, required by their fiduciary duty, to protect the Republican Party of Minnesota.

- To ensure there is a compliance process put in place that provides clear timelines, direction and transparency for all necessary bodies of the Party and the individuals who have the duty to take the directed action;
- Providing information to State Central Delegates and seated Alternates about the changes in the 2023 Minnesota Statutes which create multiple requirements for compliance by every Major Party. Noncompliance with these requirements, including the filing of a false certification of compliance, could result in the Republican Party of Minnesota LOSING MAJOR PARTY STATUS and/orIncurring additional litigation expenses; and
- Allowing, within the agenda, a REQUIRED opportunity for the SCC body to discuss thisinformation amongst themselves and have all questions answered by the people to whom they would like to pose questions,
the Delegates request this meeting be held Saturday, September 23 at 1:00 PM (Location TBD.)
While the Party must call the meeting within 40 days, the Delegates, who have a fiduciary duty to protect the Party, are clearly directing the Party to call this meeting as soon as possible to ensure there is the time necessary for all bodies of the Party to come into the required compliance.
To ensure Delegates and alternates from across the state can drive to the meeting the day of the meeting, these delegates are directing the Party to hold the meeting beginning no earlier than 1pm (with registration opening at 10am and closing at 1pm), at a location that will remain available until 10pm.
The State Central Committee is composed of the Members, Delegates, and Alternates elected or appointedaccording to Article IX of the State Party Constitution and Bylaws as determined to be binding by the delegates and seated alternates after quorum is established at this meeting.
The Delegates request there be no registration fees for this EMERGENCY meeting to allow as many members of the body to participate as is possible. Donations to the Republican Party will be accepted via credit card payment prior to the meeting & in person at the event.
A formal call will be issued within 10 days of the called meeting date in the manner allowed by the Bylaws.
