Attention all Region 4East members,
Each year, different parts of the state hold elections for their respective regional director. Regional directors hold office for a term of 3 years and they may succeed themselves. This year, Region 4E is up for election. Region 4E encompasses the counties of Albany, Schenectady, Columbia, Greene and Rensselaer. As regional director I have asked two NYSTA members to be points of contact for anyone wishing to run for the director position. In Columbia County, Dick Leggett Sr. His phone # is 518-392-2062, and in Rensselaer County, Dave Gentner Sr. His # is 518-410-6036. Anyone interested in running for this position should contact either of these two men with their information.
All candidates should meet the minimum qualifications set forth by NYSTA as stated in the by-laws under Article VI. The by-laws can be found on this website. Since it is my intention to continue as your region 4e director, if there is more than just myself interested, then we shall have an election to determine the director for the next three years. Deadline for submissions is June 10th, 2015, as we have to have all names into the NYSTA Treasurer by the 15th so that ballots can be made up and mailed to members.
Jim Greeley, Reg. 4East Director
