Berclair, the reason for the decertification was that the SCDP was obsessed with Bryan Carson and not doing their job, nothing to support candidates for election this year, not raising money, not doing anything to get out the vote. They were worthless as a political party. I don't think the whole state executive committee voted. I think the Chair has the authority to de-certify any county party.

I agree that there are way too many appointed positions and many of them can either be eliminated. While I am not advocating strict quotas, smart and inclusive politics is as necessary to the success of this administration as good policies and good management. So yes, appointments of key leadership has to reflect key constituencies for the city as a whole.
