Firing up the vote and the fish

Chef Chad of Lark Creek Blue

It's that time of year again. The silvers have slowed, gold leaves swirl to ground, and inside the Copper River/PWS Marketing Association elections are being held. The 2013 Board of Directors election sees three gillnet seats open, most recently occupied by Brian Rutzer, Bill Webber and Thea Thomas. Brian and Bill have declined nominations to run for the board again, both of them after years of service to the organization. On behalf of the membership, I want to thank them for volunteering their time and unique skills and expertise in leading your local RSDA.

Five candidates are on the ballot, which was mailed to each permit holder almost a month ago at their address on file with the CFEC. Ballots are due to the CRPWSMA office by October 15th. You can hand deliver them up until 5pm that day or snail mail them via pre-paid envelopes included (just make sure to have them postmarked by the date due). Below are the candidate statements:
