All candidates have been given the opportunity to submit statements about why they are running for office. This year we have a disputed contest for president. The candidate statements follow.
I am relatively new to the sport of cycling and I quickly realized that the success of the sport, and our club, is highly dependent on the hard work of a relatively few members. The activities of the Board is critical to our continued success and I am the sort of person who likes to get involved. I serve in various leadership positions in my professional life and through my involvement with a non-profit organization. I believe this experience will be valuable to the CRCA Board in 2011 in my role as Secretary.
I believe some of the critical issues for the Board in 2011 will be: the continued safety of our races; Park’s Department and community relations; improved communications with members; encouraging more new women and junior members; and increasing participation at our open races.
I plan to work hard collaboratively with the other members of the Board to continue to provide all members with a quality, safe and enjoyable racing environment.
