Default Place Your Votes for Distict I

Unoffical and informal - Any thoughts on this one?




Disclaimer: This is not for real you MUST mail you real ballot that is attached to your renewal. The ballot MUST be sent to the auditors, not to AMA HQ or they will not be counted. You do not need to renew at the time you vote.

It will sure draw out the "business as usual" crowd. Good luck with getting rid of your "McNeill".

Dear RSallen13:

The PIPE here yet again...I was VERY BUSY at the 2004 Rhinebeck RC Jamboree passing out Andy's campaign pamphlets...and it WILL be interesting how Andy does against the "incumbent"...and when my ballot came in on Thursday of this week, Andy and a certain "D.M." got MY votes-which went in the mail TO THE ADDRESS ON THE CARD, and NOT AMA HQ, this Friday morning!

Yours Sincerely,

The PIPE!

One at a time Red. Pres and D5. Don't know much about D1. District 6 and D8 will come in time. If Mathewson wins I hope he appoints Alex Szemere. I met him several times as a member of Mercer County Radio Control Society in Imlaystown NJ (great flying field if you in the area) and felt that he was a well informed and straight talking guy. I'm sure there are others but I know of him.

Change takes time, one at a time.

Thanks Andy for attempting to make the position of VP an active one. It will be nice to be in contact with the rest of NE.

Only 20 Votes so far out of 190+ visits?

20 votes out of 400+ viewings isn't bad; considering this is a non-binding straw poll. I think the important point is the ratio of respondents. Taking into accounts the efforts of both candidates, this could be skewed in either direction and not be an accurate representation.
It is in line (however) with the responses I've received when speaking to other clubs and individual modelers. When asked, one on one, most reiterate the same !QUOT!talking points!QUOT! IE: a lack of representation, a stagnation of activity within District 1, no real chance of communication within the district (why still no web site?, yet the incumbent does (despite his not publishing it) does maintain an email address) and the perception of favoritism. Some clubs haven't seen their VP in the last ten (10) years. I personally know of one club which sent in event write-ups two years straight which never made MA.
Is there any question why I'm asking for change in District 1?
