Have you completed and returned your ballot yet? One of your rights and responsibilities as a voting member is to decide issues of significance to the church. To encourage the greatest possible participation in this annual election, the Board of Trustees has again authorized a vote-by-mail process. Voting members should have by now received a ballot. You are asked to consider the recommended candidates to serve on the Board of Trustees and the Nominating Committee, as well as the operating budget for fiscal year 2017-18. Your packet also contains a ballot for the election of two Board Stewards for our church’s Foundation, a separate nonprofit corporation whose sole purpose is to benefit First Unitarian Church of Portland.
Whether you choose to mail in your ballot (must be received in the church office by Thursday, May 18, as the office is closed on Fridays) or drop it off at church no later than 11:15 a.m. on Sunday, May 21, it is important that every voting member’s voice be heard.
