Appointment of Member to the Open Space Advisory Board
body
DATE: October 5, 2020


The term of one member of the Open Space Advisory Board, Ms. Tasia Young, is expiring, and pursuant to Section 14-2-6-16 ROA 1994, over the past few weeks, Councilors have nominated the following two individuals as potential appointees:

Ms. Tasia Young, PhD (re-appointment, submitted by Councilor Gibson)
Ms. Kay Bounkeua (new appointment, submitted by Councilor Sena)

Since more than one individual has been nominated, the City Council rules dictate that the following procedures are used:

"A ballot shall be prepared containing the names of each candidate. The balloting shall be by preferential balloting wherein each Councilor indicates the order of his or her preferences with the numeral "1" for his or her first preference, the numeral "2" for his or her second preference, and so on for every possible choice. After the ballots are marked, the total numerals shall be added for each candidate and the candidate whose total is the lowest shall be declared the winner.

If more than one similar position is to be filled on any particular body, the necessary number of candidates with the lowest number of votes shall be declared winners.

In the event of a tie, there shall be a runoff among those candidates having the lowest totals. The runoff shall be conducted by preferential balloting in the manner described herein."

Biographies of each candidate follow below. The chosen candidates term will expire September 1, 2023.
