GEA Members: I have been directed to share the results of the GEA Candidate Forum. Of those present, the top candidates were Rod Scherpe and Vickie Banks. Both received ratings higher than 85% from the members attending the forum.
The GEA is choosing not to officially endorse candidates for this election because, in part, viable candidates were not able to attend.
Some members have expressed concern about splitting the votes by voting for other candidates. This could lead to a candidate less favorable being elected. Additionally, some have expressed concern for voting for candidates and giving them a false sense of an approved mandate when they are actually uncontested.
Make a difference. With an expected moderate turnout EVERY vote will be needed. Vote!!
