I am glad the convention will be held in the geographic center of the new district to make it easier for people who live on both edges of the district. As it is, people on either end can expect to drive for more than an hour to reach the convention location. The location the convention was previously scheduled to be held at was in the 10th Congressional District.

There is no word if there will be a debate at the convention or not. The 11th District website does not even list the convention on the calendar and has not been updated in some years. Of course, the website is owned by a person, not the party, so they're effectively held hostage to his whims on these things.

I will be there and will be recording video of the proceedings and various candidates. I am registered as a delegate to this convention and may participate in the voting.

Here is some of the coverage I've posted of previous conventions:

There was no district convention in 2011 due to confusion over redistricting.
