Pg. 7 of REPUBLICAN PARTY OF MICHIGAN PROPOSED RULES FOR SELECTION
OF DELEGATES AND ALTERNATES TO THE 2014 REPUBLICAN COUNTY AND
STATE FALL CONVENTIONS Adopted Dec. 14, 2013 states:

8. METHOD OF ELECTING DELEGATES AND ALTERNATES TO THE STATE
CONVENTION
The county conventions may exercise one of two options for electing State Convention
delegates and alternates--the apportionment method or the at-large method. The
convention must use one or the other system. If the apportionment method is used and
there are still vacancies in the State Convention delegation or alternate slate(s)
following such elections, these only may be filled by an at-large vote.

In order to recognize the importance of precinct delegates, a precinct delegate
duly elected at the August 5, 2014 primary election; shall be given preference
(over a non-precinct delegate) to be elected as a delegate or alternate to the State
Convention. Between two or more such precinct delegates, no preference shall
be given.

In order to recognize hard-working Republicans, who may not be precinct delegates, a
county convention, acting as one body, may authorize the election of eligible individuals
(not to exceed 10% of the number of State Convention delegates allocated to that
county or congressional district portion or up to two individuals, whichever is greater)
not subject to this preference, as though they were, to attend the State Convention as
delegates or alternates.

In counties containing more than one congressional district or congressional district
portion, the actual selection of individuals to whom this preference shall be granted, if
authorized by the full county convention, shall be executed in the respective district
caucuses of the county convention. Violation of this preference requirement is
subject to challenge pursuant to Rule 8C.


The "hard working " option according to the rules as stated does NOT supersede a DULY
ELECTED precinct delegate. The "hard working" rule is invoked as an addition to DULY
ELECTED precinct delegates.

I, Joan M. Fabiano was duly elected as a precinct delegate and informed the Ingham County
Chair of my desire to be placed on the slate to the State Convention via email(s) (see inserts
pg 2)
