NYCC Elections

I am new to NYCC cycle, and I have only been able to make one ride this year. Hence I know very few people in the club.

I work nights, so it is very unlikely I can make the club get together. But I figure I should vote for the next president.

How can I find out who the people that are running are, and what they stand for? Are their bios posted somewhere, or have they come out with any statements?

Candidate Statements

Aside from the November bulletin, if you follow the link on our home page for on-line voting, it will bring you to the on-line ballot. On the ballot itself, you will notice that the names of the candidates in the contested races are highlighted. Simply click the highlighted names and it will bring up their campaign statements.

Stan Oldak
Candidate for President
It has been a time when we have seen a significant increase in our membership to over 1,500 members for the first time last year.

Hal Eskenazi
Candidate for President
Reverse the decline in membership possibly with some branding.

online voting

It would be nice if the online voting application did not require you to enter a vote for all board offices. I don't know either of the women who are running for secretary, they both wrote great bios, and I am sure that they are both nice people. But in order to cast my vote for the other offices I had to choose one. I assume that this wouldn't be the case if I were voting in person?

I noticed this, too.

But mostly, I just wanted to commend the club for instituting on-line voting. I think it's a great feature, and will hopefully encourage high voter turnout.

PS: Hi, Ivy.
PS2: I had to use the PS.

VP Programs postion

It's nice to be able to vote online.

I noticed no one was running for VP of Programs. On the paper ballets, I believe, there was always a line to write in someone's name. Will that option be available to online voters?

Since you studied the club by-laws so carefully when you accused people of violating them when you resigned from the Board, I'm surprised you don't know that candidates for the Board of Directors must be nominated and seconded at club meetings. Write-in candidates are not permitted. I'm dumbfounded as to why any of this matters to you though. You're not a current club member and therefore are not allowed to vote in this year's election. Not only that, as a non-member you were not eligible to hold office and should have been removed from the Board immediately. Too bad you resigned first.
