Join us Oct. 4 for Annual Meeting and Election
Posted on September 20, 2017 by Admin
We hope you'll attend the Rodgers Forge Annual Meeting at 7:00 PM on Oct. 4 at Rodgers Forge Elementary.
You'll get an update on what's happened in the neighborhood over the past year, and you'll also have a chance to share your thoughts with your neighbors and the board.
Joining us at the meeting will be Sen. Jim Brochin, Del. Steve Lafferty, and Councilman David Marks. They will each share legislative news and take questions from residents.
UPDATE: Steve Prumo, head of the New in '22 group that is advocating for a new Towson High building, will also be at the meeting in the second half to discuss plans.
As for the election of board members, there are 12 vacancies to fill in this year's election and 11 candidates, meaning there are no contested seats. Because of that, at the meeting we will vote on whether the 11 people may be installed by acclamation, meaning the Members in attendance will be asked to allow the candidates to sit on the board without a formal vote by paper ballot. This has been a common practice in past RFCA elections.
If for some reason that is not approved by the Membership, we will have a paper ballot vote. But the outcome would be the same with a paper ballot, as any candidate receiving at least one vote would win a seat on the board.
The upcoming newsletter has bios of all the candidates.
