Blogaronis or Delegates

The Blogaroni Awards are being announced on February 28, 2008 at the Panera Bread Company on National and Elm, across the street from the old Ralph Brown Supermarket and next to the College's Brown Derby. The Bus has posted on the big night earlier.

But what the Bus didn't realize is that night is also the night Democrats across Missouri will gather together and select delegates to the state Democratic convention. Caucuses will be held on Thursday, February 28. Doors will open at 6:30 PM and close at 7:30 PM. Observers will be permitted in after 7:30 PM, but they will not be allowed to participate in the caucus.

In Greene County, the meeting places are:
Legislative Disrict 134 Republic Middle School, 518 North Hampton, Republic.
Legislative Disrict 135 The Library Center, 4653 South Campbell, Springfield.
Legislative Disrict 136 Carver Middle School, 3325 West Battlefield Road, Springfield.
Legislative Disrict 137 Library Station, 2535 North Kansas Exressway, Springfield.
Legislative Disrict 138 Delaware Elementary School, 1505 South Delaware, Springfield.
Legislative Disrict 139 Library Station 2535 North Kansas Expressway, Springfield.
Legislative Disrict 140 Teamster's Hall, 1850 East Division Street, Springfield.
Legislative Disrict 145 Strafford High School, 201 McCabe, Strafford.

If you have questions, the person to call for Greene County information is Matthew Patterson 417-886-8980.

A link to information on all the caucuses is located on the Missouri Democratic Party's website.

Here's a nifty little 8 page PDF file document that tells what it means to be a delegate and other good stuff.
