MVF Board election underway
Ballots for the 2024 Montgomery Village Foundation (MVF) Board of Directors election were mailed to homeowners on Friday, Feb. 2.
Seven candidates, including two incumbents, are running to fill the three seats on the Board; those seeking election are Pamela Bort (incumbent), Stuart Flatow, Brahm Gicheru, Susan Prince (incumbent), Jacob Sauber, Roland Talley and Thomas Wills. Each year, three seats become available for a three-year term. This election will see at least one new face on the Board, as one member whose term is expiring has chosen not to seek re-election. Residents should read the candidate statements included with the mailed ballot to familiarize themselves with the candidates’ respective platforms. Each candidate has submitted a brief résumé and answered three specific questions pertaining to their proposed goals for election to the Board, included in the pull-out section of this issue. Video interviews outlining candidates’ ideas and positions are also available online at https://buff.ly/48Y2aaA or on our YouTube channel; the transcripts from those videos are included in the pull-out section as well. Additionally, residents can “meet” and talk with the candidates before the Thursday, Feb. 22 MVF Board meeting at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Connection instructions can be found in the MVF Board Packet posted online the week before each meeting. Ballots must be signed and returned to the MVF Office, 10120 Apple Ridge Road, by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 15. Given recent slower delivery times reported from the US Postal Service, it is important that ballots be mailed back quickly to ensure delivery to MVF by the deadline. Alternatively, residents can drop their ballots in the brown mailbox in the MVF Office parking
lot to ensure their vote can be validated. Results will be counted and announced on Saturday, March 16 at the MVF Office. This process is open to the public, beginning at 9 a.m.; results will be announced and posted online when the counting process is complete. New Board
members will be installed at the MVF Annual Meeting, scheduled for approximately 7:45 p.m., Thursday, March 21, at North Creek Community Center, 20125 Arrowhead Road. For more information, contact Director of Communications Ruth Stadius at 240-243-
