On-line Voting has begun.

The voting process is confusing by design. There are a total of 7 candidate categories but we must focus on voting Lisa Sarkin out. 

Sarkin is running in the Employees/Independent Contractors Category. There are five candidates running for the two available seats in this category. You may vote for two candidates and must vote Sarkin and those sympathetic to Sarkin out.
Vote for Eric Preven AND Patrice Berlin
 To do so you must first register and qualify in the Employees/Independent Contractors Category
Voter registration may be completed on-line until March 31st. link->
