Ken, first let me say thanks for your support! I can promise you that I will do everything that I can to bring transparency & openness to the BoD if I'm elected, as will Jeff, George & Steve.
That's one of the major points that brought us together - letting the members see just what the Board does & why they do it. The Board of Directors acts as the voice of the membership, so why can't the membership see or hear what is done in their name?
Are you going to agree with every vote that any one of us casts? Nope you're not, because I'm sure that the four of us will be on different sides of some questions. What you can be sure of is that each of us is for total openness & honesty from the BoD.
There will be some times that a "closed session" is necessary - things like contract negotiations before a contract is signed, investigation before disciplinary action against a member or contractor or some financial matters to name a few. Once the discussion is over, I can't think of too many times when we should keep things from the members.
Again, thanx for your support and be sure to vote!
