    It was just a little less than a year ago that we held an Election for CR of the Boston Rebels. At that time we decided that from that point on an election would be held once a year to see who would lead the group.

    Well, the time to vote again is drawing near.The last month of my current term as CR will end after the March Meet. I will not be running for reelection.

    If you wish to run for CR please post your intention to do so in this thread. Once we have a list of those who want to run we will set up a vote.

    I will be running. :)

    Are we expected to "campaign" in this thread, or will that come later?

    I debating whether or not I will - I'm not sure that I'd be able to devote the time I should.

    Not sure if that was sarcasm or not ;) LOL
    However, I feel the group should come up with a better method for collecting votes.
    If you need help again this year thats fine however I would prefer everyone voted at a meeting for example. :)

    Good luck :)

    The meet-vote idea is a good one. I can't believe we didn't think of that.

    But if someone can't make it to that particular meet, then what?

    Once we have a definitive list of who is attending, perhaps those of us not going can PM them with our vote?
    It kinda defeats the whole "secret ballot" thing, but thta's my idea :)

    CR is chapter representative, the person with the blue colors. Scott, aka Ryno, is currently our CR but we'll be holding elections like he said.

    Thanks. Due to your quick response I'll be voting for you...

    Hehe, while I appreciate that, it was only a quick response because I was up insanely early this morning. Had you posted that say, now, you wouldn't have gotten a response from me until well after 5pm today. My MWF schedule sucks! Grr. But, anyway, soon I'll post some sort of position statement so that all of you can make a more well-informed decision. :)

    Yeah, just wanted to chime in, you have to be a Rebel to vote. What is a Rebel?

    From our website...

    It's easy to become a Rebel:
    Join us in the FanForce forums
    Come to a monthly meeting


    So come to a meet. :)

    Up, and for good reason:

    The new CR takes office in the beginning of April. I assume the March meet (whatever it is) will be the voting battleground.

    Discuss. :)

    It looks as if only Joe and Roseanna plan on running for the CR position.

    I will post a "campaign statement" by this Saturday. I have 3 exams this week, so I apologize for the delay. :)

    I also have a problem with the third Saturday in March, unfortunately. I fly home for my spring break that day. Would anyone object to the second Saturday, or even the second Sunday, of March instead? We should probably discuss that in the meet thread, but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

    I think we should set up another online vote this year as some people may have legitimate reasons to miss the meet.I want to give people a chance to vote even if they can't make the meet.I suggest that we set the vote for the 1st of March. The new CR will then take over after the March meet is over.

    We'll just need to come up with a way to tally the votes. I doubt Strawbary would take the job after what happened last year.

    Meetage is out for me, too, as I'm travelling for the third week in March. Scott, do you see any impropriety in having a Rebel collect all the votes, or would you prefer leaving it to an outsider?

    I would be open to it as long as it's someone that can be agreed upon.

    Like I've said in the past, I can set up a special email for voting, and then members can vote for their choice. The appropriate person(s) can then use the email password to count the votes.

    I would just like to remind the candidates that we have a huge year coming upon us.
    Celebration 3...
