No Election for Periodical Correspondents

Why this matters: These reporters elected to the Exec. Committee of Periodical Correspondents can help directors of the galleries in fighting for space and seats at the upcoming Democratic and Republican conventions which the gallery handles for the magazine, blog and newsletter press. Daily press and TV have their own press galleries and committees.

The memo:

Subject: New Executive Committee for the 112th Congress

As of last night’s deadline for nominating petitions for the Executive Committee of Periodical Correspondents, the directors received 7 complete and verified forms.  Since there are seven candidates for seven open positions, there will be no need for a formal ballot election.  If that is to everyone’s satisfaction, Rob and I will add an agenda item to the next meeting to approve the election of the Committee Members.  That meeting should occur sometime in January.
