As you read this blog, ballots for the MVF Board of Directors’ election have been mailed out. This is your opportunity to help the Village by exercising your vote and selecting three Directors to serve for the next three years. Each year, one-third of the nine-member Board of Directors comes up for election.
I was very pleased to see so many Village residents turn out for the Candidates’ Forum on January 22. The complete transcript of the forum is contained in the latest issue of the Village News. I know that many Village residents use this information in making their decision. In addition, the video of the forum has been posted to the MVF website at www.mvf.org.
Voting is done as conveniently as possible. All it takes is a few minutes to read and mark your ballot and then mail it. The postage is already paid. Be sure to sign the outside envelope as directed. Although the ballot is anonymous, the signature and address requirement ensures that the ballot comes from a Village resident.
Ballots must be returned by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 1 to the MVF office on Apple Ridge Road. Counting of the ballots takes place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 2 at the MVF office. Everyone is welcome to watch the ballot counting which is done by a committee of Village residents.
I have marked my Ballot for Sharon Cranford, Scott Dyer and Elena Peterson; I encourage everyone to do the same. Let’s keep moving Montgomery Village forward.
