Elections and Newsletters

After last year's bruising presidential contest, I'm reluctant to talk about elections in this column. However, the BSCL's annual election is fast approaching. On May 4, we'll elect a new president, vice president, recording secretary, and board member. Very soon, I'll be convening a nominating committee, in accordance with our bylaws, whose job will be to present a slate of candidates. (Our current treasurer and membership secretary have kindly offered to stand for re-election.) If you've been thinking of getting more involved in the BSCL, I encourage you to consider standing for election to one of these positions. Please let me know if you are interested so I can share your name with the nominating committee.

In other developments, I'm pleased to announce that Teresa Saunders and Theresa Schweser have agreed to be the new co-publishers of the Barcroft News. They'll be responsible for picking up the newsletters from the printer and distributing them to the 25-plus Barcroft volunteers who bring them to your doorstep each month. Please join me in extending a big thank you to Teresa and Theresa —  and to all the delivery volunteers.  

Finally, be sure to join us at the community house at 7:30 p.m. on March 2 for our next monthly meeting. Our guest will be a staff member from the office of Rep. Don Beyer. See you then.
