Tim objected to this because the charter committee hadn't talked about it yet. We had a vote and 13 people voted for it to change and 7 voted against it. So it did not change because the charter requires a 2/3 majority vote to change it.
I have a hard time understanding how a regular club member would vote against voting for who they want in office. It seems like the board may have to pick somebody in a pinch and that person may, or may not be the best person for the job. After a few months it would be a perfect time to analyze how that job has been filled and ALSO that person may decide they don't want to do it anymore and choose not to run. In this exact case Joe does have A LOT on his plate! I could not do what he is doing! If I had a baby that was hanging on to life and a shoulder that didn't allow me to write (or disc golf) with my regular hand. I would never commit to the stress of dealing with this extremely tough situation. It's going to take a lot of time and effort for the next few months to be a board member!
i thank you for the concern jeremy but i am very well capable to do the job i was given ...and my baby is NOT "hanging on to life " she is thriving and getting bigger and i CAN write and i CAN play golf (just have to do it with my left hand ) and i have been a board member just not in this club ..so please enlighten me on HOW this "job " will be so stressful and extremely tough ???? and as for you not being able to go thru what i am dealing with ... all i can say to that is " life is compilcated enjoy it how it comes "
