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. So, the election process is as follows:
The nominations committee ( Mari Falk, Jeanne Hamilton, Deb Klock, Patti VandeHei, Anita Klein) will accept names of people who want to run for a board position. There will also be a membership meeting on October 23, 2017, at the Labor Hall (1104 Wisconsin Avenue, Sheboygan) at 7:00 p.m. for nominations from the floor. Each candidate must have a nominator and a second to be on the ballot. Those members who contact the committee must also have a nominator and a second at the membership meeting. A ballot will be prepared after that meeting with all candidates. That ballot will be voted at the November 27 meeting. Those winning the election take office at the January, 2018 meeting.
Because of the changes in the Board structure that was made in our Constitution, we will be voting for a total of eleven board members as follows:
Chairperson (for one year term)
First Vice Chairperson (for one year term)
Second Vice Chairperson (for one year term)
2 Board members at-large (for one year terms each)
Secretary (for two year term)
Treasurer (for two year term)
Parliamentarian (for two year term)
3 Board members at-large (for two year terms each)
The different term lengths are because the Constitution was changed to staggered terms. This will get the staggered terms started.
If you are interested in running for a position, you must decide which position. If you have any questions, please contact a committee member.
ALSO, some of your memberships have recently lapsed. You must be a current member in order to participate in the election process. Contact Membership Chair Patti VandeHei for information if you are not sure.
