We are coming up fast on SDC Officer Elections which will happen at our General Membership Meeting on July 24, 2017.  Following are the procedures for the election per our bylaws.

Nominations:

At the June membership meeting, the Nominating Committee shall report its recommendations.

Additional names may be placed in nomination by any member present.

All persons nominated must, at the time of their nomination, give verbal or written consent and must have all dues and outstanding obligations to the Club paid prior to their acceptance of the nomination.

Due notice of these nominations shall be sent to the membership prior to the election meeting.

At the July membership meeting nominations may again be accepted prior to the vote for each office.

Candidates may submit an 8-1/2" x 11" campaign sheet, one printed side only, which shall be published at the expense of the Club and included in said notice.

Election:

The election of officers shall take place at the July membership meeting. Voting for officers shall be by secret ballot, upon request of any member, with those members present whose dues have been paid more than fifty-six (56) days in advance for this meeting being issued ballots by the Recording Secretary.

A simple majority is necessary to fill an office, unless the gender parity procedures require otherwise. In the event a candidate does not receive this majority, a runoff must take place at the same meeting between the two highest vote-getters. In the event of a tie, nominations from the floor and a new election will take place at the following monthly membership meeting, with the membership being sent due notice of such election.


Democratic State Senator Josh Newman is under attack by Republicans. They think he is vulnerable because he won his seat by a narrow margin so Republicans are using lies to gather enough signatures for a recall election.  If they are successful in taking his seat, we will lose our super-majority in the State Senate.  We cannot allow this to happen.

A representative from Friends of Josh Newman will be making an announcement at the meeting with information on what we can do to stop them.
