NENA Annual Meeting October 2020 - Shared screen with speaker view
Spencer
01:38:03
Approximately how long will it take after requesting the minutes to receive them?
Autumn
01:38:32
Usually same day.
John Spengler
01:40:52
Can you please explain why?
Spencer
01:40:56
Is there any reason why you can’t post a link to those minutes here in this chat?
John Spengler
01:40:57
Thank you
Michael Herman
01:41:31
spencer… they’re not already online.
Spencer
01:41:46
Why?
Jason Ridgway
01:42:13
Thanks to Sherri and Jon.
Spencer
01:42:18
IMO this election doesn’t seem open, or fair.
Michael Herman
01:42:18
spencer, more complicated than we can explain in this chat.
Jim Matheson
01:43:18
Is there a limit to the number of Board Seats that we can fill tonight with incumbents and new candidates?
Suz
01:43:42
Suz=SuzanneYehle
Karena Youtz
01:43:58
If you could explain how to change the name, that would help the people who don’t know how yet.
Todd Fischer
01:44:41
Find yourself in the pictures, then click on the 3 dots, then click on rename.
Sarah Foregger
01:44:44
Hi @Karena - it IS kind of confusing, even if you’ve used Zoom before. If you hover above your picture/tile in the Zoom, there is a “three dot button"
Sherri Battazzo
01:44:53
To rename yourself, hover over your picture, you’ll see three dots, click ‘rename’
Sarah Foregger
01:45:00
if you click that, you can “Rename” to whatever you’d like. It is hard, making Zoom not the most inclusive method.
roryoconnor
01:45:02
Thanks Chris for a candid explanation of how the process landed as it is today.
Becky Anderson
01:45:32
How do we sign up for voting? Don't we have to sign a google doc or something?
Autumn Street
01:45:48
It will be posted shortly
Ellen Burry
01:45:56
Thank you Sherri
Spencer
01:47:12
How long will the voting window be open?
Jeff Powell
01:47:34
thanks Sarah
Autumn Street
01:48:17
The voting window remains open until you submit it once you are done voting
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
01:48:28
What if someone lives here but doesn’t have an ID
SuzanneYehle
01:48:33
What if your DL is from a different state
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
01:49:01
What are pre-authentic ID’s?
Autumn Street
01:49:25
Just a substitute for a driver's license, if you don't have one or it's not available
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
01:49:35
Where do you get one?
Chris Wagener
01:49:45
Out of state ID’s are allowed.
robertstefanakos
01:50:47
So you have to be in the meeting to vote? Why is it not open to all people in the North End?
Chris Wagener
01:51:07
The bylaws state that you have to be at the annual meeting
Rooney, Mark
01:51:10
How is a neighborhood association able to access state license information to validate?
Spencer
01:51:17
Paper ballots should have been mailed. This is a sham election.
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
01:51:19
Where do you have to get this “pre-authentification”
Rory O'Connor
01:51:41
Providing my DL # raises a security red flag. Can you expand.
Todd Fischer
01:51:49
Voting is requesting personal identifiable information. Please keep the non-voting portion (driver’s license, address, etc) is limited to need-to-know to validate the vote.
Spencer
01:52:26
Am I the only one that is opposed to this process?
John Spengler
01:52:46
I oppose
johnhansen
01:53:21
I’m also not comfortable posting my DL number.
Scott Snyder
01:53:55
Is it only one vote per household?
Michael Herman
01:54:00
https://forms.gle/PhZP55QyAzKQ5ZJs9
Autumn Street
01:54:06
One vote per person
Leah
01:54:06
Not all DL #'s represent current address.
Becky Anderson
01:54:10
It is quite confusing - there isn't really an explanation of this approach and I would think normally there would be a pool of candidates for the 6 spots.

Spencer
01:57:28
I have zero confidence in this process.
Rory O'Connor
01:57:34
Am I understanding that Michael can provide a unique ID instead of surrendering our DL# ?
Linda Whittig
01:57:42
I’m in! I also cleared my cache.

Susan
02:06:22

Spencer
02:10:29
My girlfriend had to work tonight. Will she be able to vote later tonight?
Linda Whittig
02:10:37
I got a confirmation
Spencer
02:10:55
How long is the window open for voting?
Autumn Street
02:11:06
NENA bylaws state that voting must occur at the annual meeting, and proxy votes are not allowed
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:11:43
Seems exclusionary
Spencer
02:12:18
It is exclusionary.
Linda Whittig
02:13:10
Sounds like Spencer should run for the board since he’s so critical and apparently has better ideas of how everything should be done.
Kelly Olson,
02:13:14
I would prefer to see a competitive race...if incumbents have done good work they will likely get re-elected. Incumbency by its nature is a powerful advantage.
Rory O'Connor
02:13:49
Does the Board understand the downside of the current process ?
Rory O'Connor
02:14:39
Audio is attenuating
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:14:39
Yes!
Joe
02:14:56
agreed
Kate
02:15:13
+1 to Linda
Stephen Gamboa
02:15:28
👏👏👏👏
Rory O'Connor
02:15:51

Foregger, Daniel

No change

Much better now
Jon Swarthout

John Spengler needs to turn his computer volume off since he is in the same house.

Thank you, Tory!
Becky Anderson
02:18:43
Thank you Tory for the positive example!!!
Spencer
02:19:04
You got my vote Tory!
Sarah Foregger
02:19:06
that was brave, Tory!
Foregger, Daniel
02:19:08
That's stand up Tory, at least one step closer to a fair and open election.
Kate Finley
02:19:16
YEAH Tory!!!!!
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:19:45
If you can’t take the heat, don’t take up the seat!!! Way to go Tory! <3 you’ve got me
Stephen Gamboa
02:19:46
Tory 2024!!
Thomas Anderson

Kate
02:22:08
Tory- Can you please provide a quick summary of your accomplishments to NENA in your current seat?
Anne hausrath
02:22:09
thanks Tory!

02:22:17
Thank you Tory, Sherri and Autumn!

Linda Whittig
02:55:07
To clarify are Sarah and Carlos married?
Chris Wagener
02:55:17
Linda, yes.
Linda Whittig
02:55:20
And there’s a brother and sister both running?
Chris Wagener
02:55:59
I am unsure.
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:56:08
they live in separate addresses
Linda Whittig
02:56:34
Is there anything in the bylaws about a husband and wife both being on the board? I understand they are at different addresses but they are still married to each other.
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:56:46
The siblings
Jeff Powell
02:57:54
they are not married and two completely different highly educated compassionate people that would both do an amazing service to the NENA board.
Linda Whittig
02:58:18
Jeff… didn’t they say they were married living in separate households?
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:58:25
No
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:58:37
I am sorry that you are confused
Jeff Powell
02:58:48
Sarah and Daniel are who I'm speaking about
Sarah Foregger
02:58:53
No, I own a home and my brother does not live in it.
Linda Whittig
02:59:13
Ok… I don’t think a husband and wife should both be candidates,.
Jeff Powell
02:59:51
thanks for clarifying!
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
02:59:52
I have a question
Todd Fischer
03:00:26
Thanks to the current NENA board. I attended my first NENA election around 1990, and it was a bit bumpy, but still worked. Also, being in the hot seat as running the election is challenging and thanks to Michael for stepping up to make it happen. Kudos.
Linda Whittig
03:00:54
Yes. Kudos to Michael.
Michael Herman
03:01:07
https://forms.gle/dNPRkC95Z5afnMkz9
Jon Swarthout
03:01:11
Sarah, Carlos, Daniel and Sarah are all appellants of TRICA Planning and Zoning approval.
Anne Kunkel
03:01:28
It works
Linda Whittig
03:02:16
So husband/wife, brother/sister all trying to get on at once. Sounds like an overtake of the board.
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
03:02:32
Please do not make assumptions
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
03:02:39
That is dangerous language you are using
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
03:02:57
We must trust in our communituy
Karena Youtz
03:04:06
Ellen, maybe just get the cursor onto the fillable line?
Suzanne Troje
03:04:38
Appreciate the comments made by Todd Fisher. The NENA Board does so much work, and Michael has been instrumental in setting up the streets committee website. Had no idea he could also manage an election!
Linda Whittig
03:04:45
It’s my obligation to question, not trust, why so many related people are trying to get on the board at once.
Heather Harper
03:05:21
I concur Linda.
Kate
03:05:22
@Marcia- The same community who came together to overthrow one of the most engaged, dedicated and effective members the NENA board has ever had?
Foregger, Daniel
03:05:50
Jon, I support TRICA, I just want to make sure proper process and procedure is followed and that the results are arrived at in a fair manner! I love the arts, I love the teachers, at TRICA!
Jim Matheson - N. 10th
03:06:23
Thanks to the past, current and future members of the NENA BOD. We appreciate your hard work and for the chance to cast our votes. Have a good night everyone…
Sarah Foregger
03:06:29
Yes, it’s important if NENA represents the neighborhood that support and opposition are both equally quantified.
Marcia Rojas ( She/Her )
03:08:33
@Kate over 100 people voted. That was a democratic vote
Alex Davis
03:09:09
Many of these candidates were the same folks who opposed opening the TRICA building. There seems to be a shared agenda? Hope not.
Linda Whittig
03:09:31
I agree Alex.
Kate
03:12:12
I’m not disputing the validity of the results, I’m questioning the motives of those who chose to vote out members who by all accounts went above and beyond to serve our neighborhood with a passion and dedication that will be difficult to match
Chrystal Allen
03:12:21
Thank you everyone!
Rory O'Connor
03:12:26
Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in serving.
Sarah Foregger
03:12:36
Thank you to everyone who attended tonight.
Sarah Foregger
03:13:02
@Kate, I’m happy to meet with you and chat about your concerns over socially distanced tea at Hyde Perk or Java.
carlos

Becky Anderson
03:15:31
Great job Chris and Michael running this so smoothly - pretty amazing! The tech stuff went very well! Appreciate it!

Yes, thank you Michael and Chris for conducting the election. I look forward to working together!
Kate
03:18:17
