Mediation postponed, feuding Bexar Dems stumble to monthly meeting

Posted By on Tue, Feb 1, 2011 at 4:01 PM

Bexar County Democrats Chair Dan Ramos reportedly delayed a weekend mediation with 379th District Judge Ron Rangel intended to start bridging the very solid divide separating warring factions of the Bexar County Democratic Party that has brought the party’s business to a standstill these past two months. (We’ve been cautioned not to use the term “factions” anymore, in favor of “coup.” We’re taking it under advisement.) Then Ramos attempted to cancel tonight’s monthly meeting of the party’s County Executive Committee, writing the group’s members in an email sent January 30, “The February CEC (regular, not required) meeting has been canceled due to the pending mediation."

The group’s webmaster and precinct chair candidate resigned via group email and later posted on the party’s website:

I am calling for an elected, senior, respected member of the Democratic Party to stand up and take control of the situation at tomorrow’s night meeting (lynching in disguise). Our finances, what is left of them, are in order. Our house is not.

(See her full post.)

Former webmaster Angie Cadena said her reference to a “lynching” was in reference to plans to announce the recent removal of party Treasurer Joseph Nazaroff, a close friend of hers, by a CEC subcommittee last week. But party members aren’t willing to abide by Ramos’ midnight cancellation. County Executive Committee members began sending their own emails stating unequivocally that the meeting is still on. The agenda is available as a PDF on the Dems' website.
