In Reply to: BOD elections, unfair advantage? posted by Grizmt on January 03, 2012 at 07:27:13:
Let me see if I got this straight. You received an email from a “candidate” who’s running for an office or position within an organization during an “election”. The email asked for your vote. It didn’t say anything against the other candidates. It simply told you of his qualifications and asked for your vote. That’s called politicking and elections “101”. It’s no different than a Presidential candidate or local government candidate sending you a mailer.
To me, it shows initiative on behalf of who sent it out. They wanted to get the word out to whomever they could and they used the most efficient way. I admire the fact that Gene G stepped up and set the record straight about the email list. That says a lot about character and integrity.
Bottom line, when I receive an email I don’t want, I delete it. If you don’t want to vote for this person, don’t. There’s no need to make something out of nothing. It is what it is. But then again, some people thrive on this sort of thing. I think they do it to see how many responses they get.
New year, same stuff..
