KIC Leadership

Good job to the KIC membership on changing the election process. Now, we need to get busy and make sure that politics does not play a game in the selection of officers for the Council.

Under Norman Arriola (Pres) and Verna Hudson (vice pres) KIC has had too many issues to keep them on as officers. They have been in these positions way too long. It is obvious that they care nothing about the Saxman people or their membership. This is shown clearly by the handling of Kyle Palmer to the point where attorneys, and State Senators have gotten involved. They have fought too long and too hard against our Saxman people. They do not deserve any more time in leadership.

Irene Dundas should be the President. She is originally from Saxman and I believe that she would be an excellent new president. Rob Sanderson has been voting on the side of the membership. Put him in as the Vice President. I think with his background serving as a VP for Central Council he is a good person to keep membership wishes in the forefront.

Any of the remaining council except for Verna and Norman could be elected as Secretary/Treasure. DON"T LET THEM TELL THE MEMBERSHIP WHAT TO DO. The membership needs to continue on their mission of saying enough is enough. Look at Egypt. You are all doing a marvelous job of bringing them to accountability.

In membership,
