SYLVIA PEREZ GARZA GETS SMACK DOWN FROM GILBERTO HINOJOSA'S WIFE
 
 
September 26, 2013

Sylvia Perez Garza
Chair, Cameron County Democratic Party
Brownsville, Texas

Re: Meeting called by you for Friday, September 27, 2013

Dear Chair Perez Garza:

Last night at 9:47 pm I received an email from the Cameron County Democratic Party calling a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Cameron County Democratic Party for 6:00 p.m., Friday September 27, 2013. The email does not state what matters are going to be discussed or acted upon at said meeting.

As you are well aware Article III, Section E 8(b), of The Rules of the Texas Democratic Party requires that “Precinct Chairs shall be notified by written notice at least five days in advance of all meetings, excluding emergency situations.” I have provided you with a copy of The Rules of the Texas Democratic Party with this letter.

A notice less than 24 hours of the called meeting is in direct violation of Article III, Section E8(b) of The Rules of the Texas Democratic Party. And if it is an emergency, you have failed to state what emergency you believe allows you to call this meeting with less than 5 days notice.

As I understand, you have stated that you intend to announce for the position of Cameron County Judge this weekend. You aware that you cannot, under Texas law, be the elected Chair of the Cameron County Democratic Party and be a candidate for a partisan elected position such as Cameron County Judge. Upon your announcement (if such an announcement is to take place) and required resignation, Article III, Section E 5(b) requires that vacancy of Chair “shall be filled by majority vote of the County Executive Committee at a meeting at which a majority of the membership shall constitute a quorum.” That meeting can be called by you or the Secretary of the County Executive Committee. “Upon the written request of any Committee member, however, the Secretary shall call one for a date not more than 20 days after receiving the request, giving each member notice of the time, place, and purpose. Should a Committee Secretary fail to act after being requested in writing to do so, the State Chair shall call the meeting in like manner.” Article III, Section E 5(a) of Rules of the Texas Democratic Party

If you intend to resign from the position of Chair of the Cameron County Democratic Party and are calling the meeting this Friday September 27, 2013, for purposes of electing a Chair of the Cameron County Democratic Party to replace you, I am hereby giving you notice that such a meeting and election would be illegal under the Rules of the Texas Democratic Party.

In the event that you believe that this is some type of emergency (which I fail to see how it could be an emergency), and you are calling this meeting in order to have an election for your replacement, then, I am hereby providing you with written notice, pursuant to Article III, Section E 5(a) of Rules of the Texas Democratic Party, requesting that the Secretary of the Cameron County Democratic Party call a meeting for filling the vacancy of Chair of the Cameron County Democratic Party for a date not more than 20 days after receiving this request, giving each member of the Cameron County Executive Committee notice of the time, place, and purpose of the meeting.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,


Cynthia Hinojosa
Precinct Chair, Precinct 9
Cameron County Executive Committee
