Position statements from Previous Annual Meetings.
Thirty-eight of our members and guests attended the Annual Meeting 2013 on May 17. The new and returning board members listed on page 1 were elected and/or installed by Linda Krefting, President of LWV-TX. Mayor Nelda Martinez delivered a high-energy look at the city from her perspective as a member of LWV-CC. Frank Pimentel and Dr. Gloria Scott were recognized for their service as their terms as board members expired. The Bylaws changes noted elsewhere in this publication were also approved. An hour of the Mayor's time was auctioned by auctioneer superb Nick Jimenez and purchased for $500 by Coretta Graham and outgoing president Judy Telge. The time and money will be devoted to establishing "Women Leaders Mentoring Young Leaders" as Judy's legacy. In appreciation for the time, work and effort required to be president, Judy was presented with a generous gift certificate at Chicos and a resolution of recognition from State Rep. Abel Herrero which had been proclaimed on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives. Well done, Judy!
