It’s time to vote for members of the Weavers Way Board!
Your vote is incredibly important — our Co-op works because members get involved. The baseline way to get involved, as you know, is to VOTE!
This is an exciting time for Weavers Way, with the partnership agreement with Ambler Food Coop, the new store opening in Ambler and a record number of members. The Board bears the ultimate responsibility for making sure all of our initiatives work out well, so it matters who represents you on the Board.
This year, we have a great group of eight candidates running for four open seats. Read their statements here, or in the Weavers Way Online Members Center (login required). A bonus for going to the Member Center: Short videos of each candidate will enrich your understanding of each one.
When you are ready to vote, you can do so online or by paper ballot, one vote per member household. Voting ends April 30, and results will be announced that evening at the Spring General Membership Meeting.
You'll be getting periodic email reminders to vote until you cast your ballot. So vote early, and we'll stop bothering you!
Your Leadership Committee works hard to ensure the elections process is fair and honors all who are interested in running. I thank them: Larry Daniels, Sylvia Gentry, Joan Patton and Susan Zipin.
For the Leadership Committee,
Weavers Way Board Member Laura Morris Siena, Chair
