Shareholder Resolutions and Independent Slate 2016
Organized by: Pamela Craig
We are already at 12% of our goal on the first day, 12 is a lucky number!
March 07, 2016
EVENT DATE Apr 15, 2016
This is a fundraiser to make it possible for the shareholders to put forth proxies for resolutions to change the Bylaws (mainly for election reform), put forth a slate of candidates independent from the corporate proxy, and take other shareholder actions, as discussed in the closed shareholder FB group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/673634076075234/ ). Petitions wiil be electronically distributed by mid-March and printed directly by shareholders, and either collected by designated shareholders or scanned then emailed to designated shareholder(s). Per the Bylaws, proxies need to be mailed by the proponent, at his or her sole expense, in the United States mail, addressed to each shareholder at his or her last address of record.
The resolutions will be listed in the closed FB group as they are drafted and finalized in early March. An estimate of the expenses is roughly estimated to be $8000 (estimated will be updated as we finalize mailout service vendor). Contributors for amounts greater than $499 may offer to pay for expenses directly for the mailings using a credit card or check. Note that this fundraising website takes 3% of the donated funds (this is a small fee compared to many others).
An independent slate proxy ballot for 3 candidates in 2016 (Theodore A.Wright, Michael C. Kinville and Pamela J. Craig; see https://www.facebook.com/Independent-Candidates-2016-930333903747867/?__mref=message_bubble ) will be mailed along with these resolution proxies in a cost saving measure. It is intended that by combining the proxies for the resolutions and candidates into one mailing to the shareholders, money and time will be saved and the independent candidates will not be financially burdened.
As an alternative to monetary donations, you may contribute artwork in the closed FB site for which we can do an auction. Also, you may donate in the name of a person or to anything you wish. The following individual shareholders have already offered to donate directly at a future date if possible (not using this website): Harold Borbridge $499, Gene "Danny" Craig $499. Please feel free to message one of us if you would also like to contribute outside this website.
