Hello Fellow Tildenites,
The Elections Committee met on October 22, 2015 to elect a chairperson and discuss committee business. I am honored to introduce myself as the chairperson of Tilden’s Election Committee for this year. I am grateful for the privilege to do service for our wonderful club!
I am equally pleased to report that it is time for club elections!! The Elections Committee is ready to accept nominations for club Officers and Executive Committee Members. According to our By-Laws, you may nominate yourself or others for office. As you know, the Club Officer positions are: President; Vice-President (3 “V-P” spots); Corresponding Secretary; Recording Secretary; and Treasurer. We have 12-16 spots on our Executive Committee. According to our By-Laws, all persons nominated must be members in good-standing. In addition, we ask that all candidates be willing and able to attend at least three Executive Committee meetings, and participate in club events.
If you wish to nominate anyone for this year’s elections, please submit the names of all persons you wish to nominate, specifying the office you wish to nominate them for, to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org by November 16, 2015. At our November 19, 2015 Club Meeting, we will report the names of those nominated as of November 16. However, nominations from the floor may be entertained at our November 19 meeting, at which point nominations will be closed.
Also, please note that the Elections Committee and Executive Committee will hold a “Candidates Night” on Monday, January 11, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Seafarer’s International House (15th Street and Irving Place, 2nd Floor) which all nominees must attend and make a presentation in support of their candidacy. The elections will then take place ten days later at our January 21, 2016 Annual Club Meeting.
I look forward to receiving your nominations and seeing you at the Candidates Night on January 11!
Kathleen C. Waterman, Esq.
Please remember to vote tomorrow, November 3. Encourage your neighbors to vote, too, so that we can have a good turnout.
I would like to thank all of the Tildenites who attended Sunday’s Presidential Forum. The attendance was remarkable – estimated at 300 people – and those present watched a lively debate among representatives of the Democratic candidates. The remarkable Ronnie Eldridge moderated and Assembly member Keith Wright represented the Clinton campaign. Tilden had the loudest contingent present and your shout outs were appreciated!
