I would like to offer my personal endorsement of the following candidates for LITA offices for this election cycle:
Aaron Dobbs and Maurice York for Councilors at Large. Both Aaron and Maurice have worked behind the scenes for years to improve the way that LITA does things, and I think having them on the Board will help move LITA forward. I know both of them well, and have worked with both at a national level with LITA, and would be thrilled to see them as members of the Board.
I would also like to endorse Karen Starr for Vice-President. Her personal statement says “The innovators and leaders of tomorrow are the LITA members of today. It is refreshing to work with a dynamic group on the national level who care, who want to define that future and who come together to work on what the big picture should look like.” I believe that the time has come to define our future.
Please remember to vote, and I hope that you take my recommendation to the polls!
This endorsement represents my personal opinion and is in no way reflective of any committee, interest group, or other unit of LITA or ALA.
