SCDP BOARD ELECTION
Elections for the Sheboygan County Democratic Party Board will be held on November 27, 2017, at a membership meeting at 7:00 p.m. at the Labor Hall, 1104 Wisconsin Avenue, Sheboygan. Because of a past motion (made 2 years ago) all current board members terms will expire this year.
That ballot will be voted at the November 27 membership meeting. You must be present to vote. Those winning the election take office at the January 2018 meeting.
Because of the changes in the Board structure that were made in our Constitution, we will be voting for a total of eleven board members as follows:
According to the Constitution, Article VII, Section 1, “The Chair, First Vice-Chair, Second Vice Chair, and three (3) members-at-large shall be elected in odd years. The Secretary, Treasurer, Parliamentarian, and two (2) members-at-large shall be elected in even years.”
The different term lengths are because the Constitution was changed to staggered terms. This will get the staggered terms started.
The slate that has been prepared by the Nominations Committee is as follows:
Chair – Anita Klein; First Vice-Chair – Tim Lorenz; Second –Vice Chair – Carol Zoran; Secretary – Deb Klock; Treasurer – Cody Gabrielson; Parliamentarian — ?; 5 at-large board members: Barbara Alvarez, Ryan Burg, Carol Falk, Jeanne Hamilton, Mari Falk, Patti VandeHei.
If you are interested in running for a position, you must decide which position. If you have any questions, please contact a committee member. The duties of each office is listed in the Constitution and can be viewed on the web page: http://www.sheboygandems.com/constitution
ALSO, some of your memberships have recently lapsed. You must be a current member in order to participate in the election process.
