The GPCA state Coordinating Committee approved the bylaws interpretation below on July 3rd.

GPCA Bylaws 13-3 governing bylaws interpretations state that such interpretations may be made by the Coordinating Committee, subject to confirmation by the Standing General Assembly (http://www.cagreens.org/bylaws/2013-06-23#Article_13-3_Bylaws_Interpretation) . This interpretation is being put forward simultaneously with the election it authorized.


That the Standing General Assembly approve the following bylaws interpretation:

- Whereas normal practice for submitting candidate applications for both the GPCA Coordinating Committee and the GPUS Delegation has either been for each candidate to send separate emails to applications@cagreens.org, with a title specifying the office sought, or to send a single email with both offices specified in the subject header; and

- Whereas at the same time there has been no official rules governing this practice; and

- Whereas Trini Castaneda submitted his application only listing the GPCA Coordinating Committee in the subject header of his email, but within the body of the email included both the GPCA Coordinating Committee and the GPUS Delegation; and

- Whereas this led to his candidacy for the GPCA Coordinating Committee being posted to the SGA voting page, but not for the GPUS Delegation, therefore

- The Coordinating Committee finds that a special election can be called to allow the SGA to consider Castaneda's candidacy for GPUS Delegation, and that it should be for one week of discussion and one week vote, with the discussion beginning on Monday, July 4 and the voting on Monday, July 11
