Sudden Passing of Our Chair

On February 16, 2023, our chair, Jack Alan Brown Jr. passed away suddenly.

With him went the knowledge of many of the procedures used by the Party, including the website development. Our acting chair called a meeting in November 2023, in which a new chair was elected for the interim.

Efforts are underway to build the Party structure to what it should be, with proper county organizations. Meetings for this purpose will be called on the third Saturday in April. On the fourth Saturday in May (May 25, 2024), immediately following the primary election, the Constitution Party will hold its own nominating convention at a place to be announced; also on the agenda at that meeting is the election of Party officers.

These elections will be held in accordance with Oregon Regulatory Statutes 254 and 248, with the Party bylaws, and Robert's Rules of Order.
