I have thought hard about this and because I tried to make nominations available for as many people and up to the last minute, I ended up with this situation. What started out as a good intentioned plan backfired on me
The only way that I could think of to fix this was to have nominations open for one month
and have campaigning for two months
and there will be no campaigning at the meeting on election day
How many people voted at the election? Was it really that difficult or odd to expect that the candidates would speak before the voting process? Especially considering that it's happened every single year since the SDGA has went with this process?
It was pretty obvious that after listening to your's and Gordy's speeches, that you don't want to speak before the election because it's not your strong point.
I do not consider online forums a quality place to run a cam-pain. (a restaurant is
)Considering that maybe 12-15 people on this forum vote, and we had 50 voters, this forum doesn't cover the broad spectrum of voters very well. YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY THAT THERE WILL BE NO CAMPAIGNING THE DAY OF AN ELECTION BOB! That's a club decision. You aren't the whole club. Put to vote and your members would vote you down in this area, but you keep manipulating what's best for you. Why are you afraid/against allowing candidates to speak before the election?
Please don't say time, 6 people taking up a max of 5 minutes a piece is only 30 minutes. Our club meetings are legendary for their length.
Don't let everybody miss out on a once a year Time warp again!
