Neighbors,

BCNA will hold annual Officer and Sector Representative elections on Tuesday, December 11,
at the General Association Meeting.

We published most candidate statements in the BCNA newsletter that you should have received by now.
However, some neighbors have announced their candidacy since then, so I am re-sending all statements.
With 13 positions on the ballot, that makes for a lot of reading.
I am therefore breaking them down into several e-mails:

President,
Director of Communications
VP Neighborhood Issues and VP External Affairs
Treasurer, Secretary
Green & Lavender Sector Reps
Blue & Yellow Sector Reps
Pink & Brown Sector Reps
Orange Sector – STILL NEED CANDIDATE

Thanks,
Ingrid Weigand
Member, BCNA Elections Committee

A little Austin history from John T. Davis.

“How The 1970s Defined Austin”
A cool article about Austin.
By John T. Davis
Published: August 30, 2018 Austin Monthly

Longtime Austinites are particularly fond of their former sleepy college town’s history, and no decade represents a happier time—the happiest, some would say—than the freewheeling, youth-driven ’70s. Austin has always been a progressive city, but this decade formed the bedrock for where we are today. We explain why.
