Post Script

Pursuant to a RPV General Counsel ruling from 2014 the provision in the District Committee’s ByLaws saying that officers serve “at the pleasure of the Chairman,” is in conflict with the RPV Party Plan. As such David Skiles could not be removed by the Chairman at the meeting on June 13, 2016.

Mr. Skiles was and continues to be the Second Vice Chairman of the 11thCDRC.

2ndVC Skiles and Chairman Prados have had a productive dialogue since the meeting, and are already building a long term relationship for the benefit of the 11thCDRC.

Interested parties should feel free to reach out to 2ndVC Skiles or Chairman Prados for more information.
