The Editor: The powers that control the National LULACBoard are preparing a strategy to create delegates at theNational LULAC Convention in Las Vegas this summer asand when they are needed.The meeting of LULAC delegates at a convention isrecognized in the LULAC constitution as the meeting ofthe Assembly. Delegates to a LULAC NationalConvention represent local councils, generally 3 delegatesor more per council. In the norm, it is 3 delegates percouncil. Councils with large memberships, generally endup with more than 3 delegates, but generally not more that4 delegates. Taking delegates to National Conventionscosts money in the form of transportation, lodging, food,entertainment and registration. More councils have paidup membership than councils with delegates at anyNational LULAC Convention.
Travel from Puerto Rico will cost $800.00 round trip, plus$300.00 for two nights lodging, $200.00 for meals,$100.00 for entertainment and $50.00 for registration, for acost per person of $1,450.00. The bill for 350 delegatesfrom Puerto Rico would run at $507,500.00. If that kind ofmoney were available for island Puerto Rican delegates,that is the amount of money that would be needed to bringin 350 delegates for the elected officials who currentlycontrol the National LULAC Board to get elected. Thatmoney is not available and those delegates will not beavailable from the island.
The Art of Creating Delegates at the National LULACConventionThe Editor: To get around that problem, the politicaloperatives on the National LULAC Board are working outa strategy to have local persons from Las Vegas to fill invacant delegate slots for island Puerto Rico delegates whocould not attend the National LULAC Convention inVegas.
The cost per delegate to create a LULAC council runs at$100.00 per delegate at 3 delegates per council or$300.00 per council. $100.00 per delegate is cheaper forthe political operatives than $1,450.00 per delegate that isinvolved in bringing a delegate from the island.
The National LULAC Board will control the delegates whoseat on the National LULAC Credentials Committee at thethe National Convention. The Credentials Committee willknow who has registered for the Convention, what paidCouncils from the island are absent and will have an exactnumber of where vacant delegate slots will have to befilled. This is standard operating procedure for LULAC.
Check the identity of each delegate. That was done in1994 and 1998, in election years where the vote forNational President was carried by 3 votes in 1994 and by16 votes in 1998.
Anyway, the word on the LULAC callejon is that LasVegas persons who reside in Vegas will be registered asisland Puerto Rico delegates.
