  1. We can vote to officially endorse a candidate — that requires 70% threshold,
  2. We can vote not to endorse at all, or
  3. We can vote that all or some of the candidates are “acceptable”

Below is the list of candidates and offices on which we will be considering endorsement:

We will also be voting on our Club officers for 2016. We have four elected officers who are running unopposed at this time although nominations from the floor can be made:

President – Jen Campbell, MD
Vice President – Rhoda Quate
Secretary – Kyle Ellis
Treasruer – Linda Carston

Other Members of the Executive Board are appointed and serve as Committee Chairs of Membership, Internet Technology, Hospitality, Political Action, & Photography. Other possible Committees may be formed from time to time as the need arises.

At our Executive Board Meeting in December, the Board noted that changes need to be made to our Club’s By-Laws to reflect changes in County Party By-Laws that were made at the Central Committee meeting in November 2015. Other updates are also needed.

Looking forward to receiving your membership dues in the mail and seeing you at the upcoming meeting.

Forward for Democratic Victories in 2016!
