Board of Civil Authority
October 23, 2014 – Minutes
Present: Gloria Cristelli, Christine Druke, Priscilla Cotton, Gary Katz, Mary Ann Clarkson, Greg Record, Sandra Dowley, Richard Marek, and Michael Fitzpatrick
Absent: Todd Lawley, Fred Bacon, and Ellen Darrow
Priscilla Cotton, chair, called the meeting to order at 5:30 p.m. Gloria Cristelli indicated that by not being able to contact other assistant election officials she was left without a confirmed schedule very close to a national election.
Priscilla read the names of each BCA member present from the tentative schedule to ask if he or she could work the hours he/she was scheduled. He/she said yes or no. Gary Katz indicated that he needed to leave a half hour earlier than the ending of his scheduled time but could not switch with anyone in the afternoon slots. Gloria indicated that she would fill the half hour slot. Gloria Cristelli had received written confirmation from Ellen Darrow and Fred Bacon saying that they could serve the designated hours.
Gary Katz moved to accept the minutes of the July 15, 2014 BCA meeting. Greg Record seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously. The watermark of the word Draft will be removed.
A brief discussion ensued regarding the necessity of having these meetings. Mike Fitzpatrick noted that he does not read his emails and would not have attended the meeting if it had not been for his phone call to Gloria in the afternoon. Gloria’s point was that those who do not respond in emails are the same ones that do not come to the meetings. No action was taken.
Respectfully submitted by,
Gloria J. Cristelli
