A week after a scheduling snafu delayed for two weeks the Salt Lake County Democratic Convention, the party has ousted first-year Chairman Christian Burridge.
Burridge - still blistering from what he described as an "ambush" from fellow party leaders - resigned today at the urging of his executive board.
"They gave me an ultimatum," he said, "and I called them on it."
Furthering the point, the Executive Committee ousted Executive Director Joe Crockett, who had heroically served these past several months at no cost to the County Party.
The scheduling snafu was not the fault of neither Christian nor Joe. The blame lies squarely at the feet of Jordan High School, who double booked our convention with ACT testing.
Joe tells me that he is grateful that he no longer works for the County Party. Personality conflicts with many of the board members, especially those with minimal political experience, drove him crazy.
P.S. - For those who are going to say that I'm being mean to the board, this is the nice version of the post.
