To restore democracy at San Francisco Pride organization. For info on what transpired at the Sept 15 annual general meeting and the mess surrounding the vote results, please read James Patterson's story for the Bay Area Reporter. Also check out Patrick Connors' report for the SFist site.
Dear SF Pride Officials,
We request that you honor the votes cast at the organization's Annual General Meeting held on Sunday, September 15 at the W Hotel, and respect the will and the intent of the voting members of SF Pride.The top-seven vote-getters should immediately be ratified as the winners of the election and preparations made to install those seven individuals.
After months of lurching from crisis-to-controversy on the part of the current SF Pride board of directors - from rescinding the vote granting a grand marshal slot for Chelsea (nee Bradley) Manning to abruptly cancelling meetings as well as sending endorsement emails and retracting them 24 hours later resulting in the termination of the CEO - we believe it's time for a new Board at SF Pride.
We ask that by the close of business on Friday, September 20, that the seven winners of the election be recognized as such and that you welcome them as active members of the Board without delay.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
