Eligible members should have received an email at the beginning of this month from electionsonline.us with a ballot for the 2013 ITE elections.
I chatted quite a bit with our vp candidates at the Midwestern ITE district meeting. Thank you John and Jeff for spending time with me! I also watched John's Video and Jeff's Video (I'm one of the less than 90 hits on their videos – ouch), read their brochures and listened to their stump speeches.
I need to start by saying both John and Jeff are fun guys to talk to, have impressive careers, are very devoted to ITE, and I believe both of them would do a fine job. They are both very aware of my thoughts and were frustrated the ITE election rules didn't allow them to respond. I'm glad we're nudging the conversation (tangent – I hope you filled out the survey ITE sent out).
I don't have a single thing I can point to, but my gut tells me Jeff will do a better job leading the changes I have been calling for. Therefore I'm endorsing Jeff Arey for the 2013 International ITE Vice-President. Whether or not you vote for Jeff, please vote by July 19th.
