Why no coverage of the other AME elections?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

If one didn't know any better it would be easy to conclude that the only elections at the 2004 Gen Con consisted of the races for Bishop and General Officers. I have a long-time clergy/lawyer friend who was seeking an elected position on the Judicial Council. Does anyone have information about the outcome of the Judicial Council races? The work of this council is extremely important since it ensures due process for all AME mebers and acts as an agent for dipute resolution. QED

I concur, Brother Dickens. Duties at my secular job prevented me from attending the conference, but there were tons of issues - pending and emerging - that needed to be dealt with and I'd like to know if, in fact, they were addressed.

Brother Bill,

Judicial Council members elected were Leeomia W. Kelley and Vonciel Jones Hill.

I'm sorry for the ommission from a previous post. I have to get use to the bifocals.

Be Blessed! WHS

Bro. Smith -

Many thanks for your responses. Do you have any information about Rev. Glenda F. Hodges who ran as an alternate to the Judicial Council? QED

Professor Bill, Rev. Hodges and Rev. Delman Howard were both elected as Clergy Judicial Council alternates. As there were two such spots open and only two candidates running, the General Secretary was authorized to cast a unaminious ballot on behalf of the General Conference as he did in the case of all persons who were running "unopposed"
