Candidate Statements

Statement by John Dodd:

Hello.  My name is John.  I've been a member of ASM for a couple of years, and would like to have the opportunity to be more active in the club.  Like many of us, I used to build models as a youngster, and got away from doing it.  I spent a little time in the Navy as a sonarman, and now I'm back to building models, mostly a lot of ships and submarines.  I guess that's the Circle of Life.  Anyway, I was reading on the website about the outstanding pay, benefits, and opportunities to travel to exotic faraway places as a club Pro Tempore.  It sounded really great so I thought I should sign up.  Well, as Bill Gates would say, "No, that was just the demo."  (And, it was the wrong website as well.)  Back to reality.  I think I have good organizational skills, a willingness to work hard, and I get along with people.  I think I can do a good job.  Well, that's it. I hope you give me the chance, and trust me.  This is not the demo.

 

Statement by Bob Henderson:

Hello modelers. 

My name is Robert (Bob) Henderson and I'm running for the position of protem member on the E Board. I am just finishing my first year in that position and I've learned a lot about the club and how it functions, and have enjoyed serving on the board. 

I'm retired so I have all the time in the world (no life?) to give for e board functions and volunteering to help at events sponsored by the club.

I'd appreciate your vote and I promise not to take any bribes from lobbyists, or start any wars.

Vote For Me And I'll Stop Bugging You, I Swear.

A family membership has only one vote.

In the case of an uncontested election, the election may be conducted by voice vote or show of hands by ASM membership present at the Election Meeting. 

In the case of a contested election, voting will be conducted by written ballot.

Ballots may be submitted to the current ASM Secretary/Treasurer by mail or in person, prior to the Election Meeting, or at the Election Meeting prior to the cutoff time previously announced.

Ballots shall be tallied by at least two current Executive Board members and the newly elected Executive Board officers shall be announced at that Election Meeting.

How we will do the November Election: 

Come up, be checked for current membership and attendance, be given ballot with a number on it, vote, put  the ballot in ballot box.
