S.B. Woo moves
1. to support the strategy proposed in S.B. Woo's e-mail to John Liu on 11/11/07, that is, to start 80-20's Iowa & New Hampshire campaigns and to later begin a "Call to Action" focusing on Hillary Clinton. Her campaign thinks that she already has support from the Asian Americans, and doesn't need to address the concerns of Asian Ams. anymore. We want to pressure the Clinton Campaign to sign 80-20's questionnaire in a satisfactory manner, and
2. that all Board Members commit not only to send in their personal emails/faxes but also ask for friends to send emails/faxes once a "Call to Action" will have been issued.
No need to second this motion, because it had been approved by the Executive Committee on 11/12/07.
The motion was unanimously approved.
10:30PM EST Meeting adjourned.
