Three seats were up for election in 2019
The 2019 Election was originally scheduled for September, 2019; however, there were some issues: the ballots that originally were sent out needed to be re-done ( I am not clear on the reasons why). There was a letter sent out to all members that said the Board felt it was in the best interest of the Association.
All candidates had to re-submit their registration for being included in the election. The second set of ballots included nine candidates.
The final election results were:
|Nancy Grimes Henderson||102|
|John R. Way||91|
Three seats were filled with this election. The winners were Denise DeMartini, Bert Soske and Andrew Bunch.
You can see that there was a tight margin of 1 between David Meyers and Andrew Bunch. This is a clear illustration of how important every vote is!
Another unusual incident during this election was that two sitting members of the Board left their term early for different reasons: Jack Cox and Doug Oliver. Rather than waiting to fill the open positions in the upcoming election, they put un-voted members into their seats: Bert Soske filled Jack Cox’s seat and Mary Braly took over as President for Doug Oliver.
Bert Soske’s position was included in the election, and he was eventually voted in; however, Mary Braly’s position was not technically up for a vote until the following year (2020), so she was on the board seat for a year as an un-elected Board Member.
