Board election approaches

Here is part of an email from Board member Mark Sherman:

(from Mark Sherman, member of the Committee to Keep KBOO as KBOO & recently appointed KBOO Foundation Board member)
Greeting KBOO friends,

It has been too long since I have sent out an email. Sorry. I would like to review some of the issues raised at Tabor Space and comment on where KBOO is today. Significant progress has been made in the last 3 months. The highlights include:

  1. The board has formed a negotiating team to work collaboratively and in good faith with the staff to address their concerns in the context of union negotiations.
  2. Remember the top down, corporate styled, board policy manual? It is now being modified by a new work group. The board has suspended the board policy manual until the update effort is completed.
  3. KBOO members can now contact the board directly through the board web page. This was one of my biggest concerns. The board should be responsive and accessible to its members.
  4. Members can now join the governance committee. This is not a big gain. However, the development committee, which has been dormant for too long shall begin meeting again beginning Monday, Aug 5 at 6:00 at KBOO. This will prove to be a critically important committee in the near future.  We need your ideas.
  5. I don’t think you have to worry about KBOO making significant changes to programming without input from the membership. Consider joining the programming committee.

Most of our initial concerns have been or are being addressed. You are the reason for this success. Your attendance at board meetings, your participation in committees, your organizing efforts, your lobbying the board, and your continued support of KBOO made these changes possible. 

The next KBOO election is critical. Please ensure your membership is up to date and you are eligible to vote. If your membership has recently lapsed, when you renew, be sure to pick up a ballot at KBOO. Thanks for being KBOO members! KBOO belongs to all of us.

……………………………………………………………………………………end of Mark’s email…………………………………

Keep KBOO will be issuing an endorsement statement soon.  In the meantime, here is a preview list of Keeper-endorsed candidates:  Michael Wells, Adin Rogovin, Jennifer Davis, Robin Ryan and Joe Uris.

  1. 1) The program i wechtad was Kasich accetance speech2) The first fact i learned is that John Kasich won the election. Also before he won the election he was apart of congress. He also wants to balance the budget in ohio.3)This view of the program was that how much John Kasich was happy that he won the election and he told everyone in Ohio what to expect out of him.4)My opion of the program was even thought a democrat won i think we will see a change in cleveland.

  3. QuotesChimp is noteworthy that your auto insurance company will try to restrict you�and properly so�from receiving a double benefit from them. Thus, if your company pays for covered injuries out of the med pay portion of the policy, it will not pay the same bills under the liability section and will be permitted to deduct those payments from the final award.
