    Default We need a VP

    Since we apparently do not have a vice president to take over the Illiiois delegation, the floor is now open for nominations. Election will follow in 7 days.

    Are you sure we don't have a VP already? I can't remember and have not taken time to search the old threads. Art can you shed any light on this?

    If we do not already have a VP, I will go along with Jeff.
    I think Jack will make a great VP!

    You must have all of your fingers and at least half your teeth.
    Must have a valid drivers' license and be an Illinois resident, former Illinois resident or want to be an Illinois resident and be willing to re-locate.
    I think I'm leaving something out.

    CR, you left out probably the most important requirement - the VP MUST be a COJ!

    Default Here's what I would suggest

    I will suggest that we wait 90 days from the date of Jay's last post; I can't remember when that was, but 90 days from that date, if we haven't heard from him in the Illinois threads, then we consider the position of president vacated and a new one can be installed.
    This is merely a suggestion. I have no authority.
    Does anyone have the date of his last post. Then start the clock.

    Here is the info you requested Art. Last post by Jaybird210 was on 12-02-2003.

    Here is a link to that thread

    Art, that sounds good to me. It hasn't even been a month yet so let's give him the 90 days to come back to hugs and kisses from the boyz.

    Default Election time

    In view of what's going on in the AZ thread,it's time for the election. It seems one person got nominated from this esteemed group...me. Therefore, cast your votes for ....me..... or write in somebody else's name. Just remember to go by the rules as to who can hold the office, per CR. The person elected should rule the roost until 90 days after 12/2/03 or until Jaybird decided to come back, whichever comes first. After the 90 days, we'll elect a president if it's necessary. Sound fair?

    Default 1 Vote for Jack

    Jack
    You have my vote for VP. I think you will do an excellent job of representing the flatlands. Hell, maybe you should just run for Governor. Can I be your Minister of Finance? I have come up with this great idea of how to make millions from the tourists visiting the flatlands!

    Psssst…is my kickback check in the mail yet.

    After consultation, it is abundantly clear that the President has vacated and will not be carrying out the duties.
    I will entertain a motion to go forward with an election for the office of President AND Vice President.
    I will abstain, unless there is a tie.
    Let the games begin.

    PFIRE:
    Interlopers may voice their opinions and campaign for candidates, but the voting will be open to flatlanders.
    With the new president will, of course, come new rules.
    And remember also, that a vice president will also be elected in the event the president cannot fulfill their duties.

    If I may, I propose a new slate of candidates in light of what was put forth today, therefore, I nominate Jack for the vacated presidency and Les the esteemed VP. Amoung the duties of VP, I suggest fundraising be one of them.
    Thank you
