Just as a reminder, all ballots must be post marked by U.S. POSTAGE SERVICE and all ballots must be received at the Post Office Box by 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, in order to be counted.
All ballots must go through the Post Office Box. No hand carried ballots will be accepted. Mail your ballot in early so your VOTE counts.
The following members have accepted nominations for the following offices:
Dave Gillotte (Incumbent)
John Smolin (Incumbent)
Jason Cervantes (Incumbent)
Pat Dolan (Incumbent)
Kurt Kobler (Incumbent)
Domonic Finks (Incumbent)
On a personal note, I want to thank all the incumbent Executive Board members for their years of service to this organization and for their dedication to our membership. Our Local 1014 Executive Board is the finest Union board in the state and that is in large part due to the dedication of our Executive Board and their commitment to the Union and its members.
I am proud to accept the nomination for President of our great union and I respectfully ask you return the hard-working experienced incumbent board members to the Executive Board to continue their good work fighting for our members. I am equally excited to have three very good brothers running for the two vacant seats.
On behalf of the Executive Board, I would especially like to thank our two outgoing Directors, Andy Doyle and Mike Jones, who are leaving us after many years of service. We thank them for their tireless service to our members and their families. There is no doubt that their work on this Board has made positive impact on our members and their quality of life.
Please take time to VOTE and know that it is an honor to serve you. We will work hard to continue to serve the membership in the tradition of Local 1014—Strength and Unity.
