Special Note – Officer Elections Nov. 17

The purposes of Muleskinners include supporting Democratic Party candidates, disseminating information to members and the public by hosting forums that provide accurate information related to government, and providing a forum for reasoned debate of issues. This coming year, we will be hosting several candidate forums. We often have press in attendance which publish articles in the Tribune and Missourian.
Membership is defined by payment of dues which are on a calendar year basis. Dues for 2018 membership will start being collected in November. We encourage you to join both the Boone County Democratic party and Muleskinners by selecting the “Joint“ option on the dues form. Your membership in Muleskinners supports the free luncheons provided our speakers and the use of the space at the Country Club of Missouri. You can also join online.
Officers for 2018 will be elected on November 17, usually by voice vote. Those who have paid their 2017 or 2018 Muleskinners dues before the election can vote. A nomination committee has proposed a slate, but other nominations may be made from the floor, in which case voting is by ballot.
The proposed slate is as follows:

Co-Presidents: Mahree Skala & Leslie Clay
1st Vice President for Programming: Chimene Schwach
2nd Vice President for Programming: Wiley Miller
Vice President for Membership: Jade Govero
Vice President for Publicity: Scott Cristal
Secretary/historian: Mary Jo Herde and Al Tacker
Co-Treasurers: Jeanne Sebaugh and Pam Springsteel

Muleskinners meet Fridays at noon at the Columbia Country Club

2210 North Country Club Dr., Columbia, MO.
Take Old Hwy 63 North to Country Club Dr, (opposite Hinkson Ave) map.

There is no fee to attend Muleskinners meetings. An optional buffet lunch is available for $15. The public is welcome and encouraged to stop by. If you have questions, please email Scott Cristal or call Scott at (573) 999-3871. If you have suggestions for future presentations please call Bill Clark at (573) 474-4510.

Muleskinners is supported, in part, by a small difference between what we pay for the meals and what we charge. However, the main source of funds to Muleskinners is our membership. Please, consider joining Muleskinners to support the important part we play in maintaining the Democratic social network in Boone County and in continuing to keep Democrats informed and engaged in political dialogue:

Membership forms also can be found at the Treasurer’s table when you attend a meeting as well as each month in our newsletter, The Boone County Democrat.
