Today the Convention of States Project announces the hiring of former Georgia state representative, Delvis Dutton, who will be a regional director for legislative affairs.
Delvis served as state representative for the 157th House district in Georgia for four years and ran for Congress in Georgia’s 12th District in 2014. He is a constitutional conservative and has been studying Article V for more than three years. Additionally, Dutton attended the first, ‘Assemblies of the State Legislatures’ meeting at Mt. Vernon in December 2013, which included more than 100 state legislators discussing Article V and the Constitution.
“We are eager to have Delvis Dutton join the Convention of States Project national team,” said Mark Meckler, co-founder of the Convention of States Project and President of Citizens for Self-Governance. “Having a former state legislator as part of the national team will be instrumental in boosting our communication and education efforts among state legislators. As a former state legislator, Delvis brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will reinforce our national expertise, bridge our legislative communications and education efforts, and provide first-hand experience to our national leadership team.”
“Understanding our history and Founding is paramount to solving all of America’s challenges,” stated Dutton. “Our Founding has been omitted from the history books and we’re not thinking about problem solving based on understanding the founding principles of this nation. I am pleased to join The Convention of States Project at this critical time in America’s history. We, The People, through the states, have the Constitutional duty to protect limited government, fiscal responsibility, and halt the abuses from the federal government.”
About the Convention of States Project
The Convention of States Project is currently organized in all 50 states, including hundreds of thousands of volunteers, supporters and advocates committed to stopping the federal government’s abuse of power. Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Governor Bobby Jindal, David Barton, Col. Allen West, Senator Tom Coburn (OK), Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, AMAC and US Term Limits, among others have endorsed the Project. Article V applications have already been passed in Alaska, Florida and Georgia. We stand ready with 32 Prime Sponsors to pass this year and hope to meet the 34 state requirement by the end of 2015.
