Merl - Is there any current Board members that are not seeking reelection and/or are ineligible to run given the tenure on the Board?

I believe that Carol is the only one not running again.

Persoanlly, I think all of these folks should get their heads examined... :rolleyes:

Couldn't agree with you more Scottie but as long as they go into it with the right attitude and no hidden agendas, then at least they are starting off on the right foot.

I didn't want to run but was nominated and got the call from Merl Friday. I'll run and I think most folks know my thoughts. Most important this BOD needs new faces and regional diversity.

Glad your in Ford

Ed Roith, but I believe he is term limited and has to sit out a year.
