The Brevard Republican Executive Committee (BREC), the local governing arm of the Republican Party, held it's elections last Thursday night, December 13th, and things did not go smoothly, to say the least.
The meeting was closed to only those members who submitted their precinct committeeman/woman paperwork with the Supervisor of Elections back in June. This meant there were 170 eligible voters, including the Brevard state delegation, who are all automatic members by virtue of their being state elected officials.
Before I explain what happened at the meeting, a disclaimer and a little context: I was a candidate for Chair, and was running against the incumbent Chairwoman Barbara Davis, whom I think is a wonderful lady. I have been involved with BREC since becoming politically active in 2007, and ran for Chair once previously in 2010.
