Address to the Membership re: Treasurer.




Dear Friends,

This last week has been difficult for all of us. We've learned some important lessons about how things work, and have begun to formulate a direction towards our eventual growth and the responsibilities we will be taking on.

As part of that process, Stryker Jenkins has tabled his resignation. In a committee meeting this afternoon (September 6, 2009) it was decided by a majority of the committee to accept this resignation. Stryker will be assuming the role as treasurer designate until a replacement can be found, at which time he will assist the treasurer elect until such time as his assistance is no longer deemed needed by the treasurer elect.

To that effect, I have consulted the charter and found the following:

Part of my mandate is "to initiate special elections that may be required in the event of an office holder (being) unable to complete his or her term."

Therefore, I have called a special election among the seated committee members to elect from among the two candidates that have made application for the Treasurer's position: Lemonodo Oh, and EagleWoman Lightfoot. It is critical that this position be filled as quickly as possible because of it's importance to the organization and the festival. It is also critical that the transition take place smoothly and transparently.

Anden Tolsen, the presiding secretary, has this evening initiated a vote. Presiding chairs have been asked to cast their vote, and tomorrow I will announce the winner.

I've made this decision in part on existing precedent. In 2009, EagleWoman Lightfoot was appointed to the Events Chair by the 2009SP Presiding Chair, Zack Preminger, with concurrence made by the 2009SP Secretary. I have decided that in this case because of the urgency of this position being filled, and a smooth transition between Stryker and the next treasurer, to include all current seated chairs in this vote.

Tomorrow, I will declare a winner based on a majority vote. At that time, I will instruct Shawn Mission to update the groups, and access to the Second Pride avatar to reflect this change.

Sincerely,


Rimpoche Kiama,
Presiding Chair
on behalf of the 2010SP Committee

That being said, again I reitterate - I support Lemo's counter-proposal

I love you

I salute this committee decision that shows a lot of courage and wisdom in my view. I believe it will be interesting for everyone of us to get to know each candidate's goals and qualifications and to be able to ask them questions before a decision is taken.

There was no need for the committee to agree to do it this soon when Lemonodo Oh had not yet found enough people to validate his request, since what was questionned was the logic behind the quick vote rather than the legitimacy of it per understanding of charter rules. Agreeing to go back and do things differently to give better fairness to a candidate is a humble decision. Perhaps the sarcasm wasn't really a necessary example to bring if one's goal should be to set standards to ensure the group's well-being and peace though. I only deplore that, but appart from it, thank you.

Once again, along with other examples they've set with their amazing first event and ideas for development, this committee has proven to be formed by people I believe we can expect to continue working as well as they have until now, when at the same time keeping in mind the interest of others as an addition to their own, for a better, richer diversity of the group that will represent the LGBT community for the other communities of SL during this Term.
