Cleveland NAACP 2012 Elections • Part II

It feels funny but not at all surprising that several paid-up NAACP members have contacted us since our last post inquiring about the details of this Sunday’s election of Branch officials.

Here are the details: the 2012 NAACP election will take place this Sunday, November 11, between 1PM and 5PM at the Cathedral Church of God in Christ, 2940 Martin Luther King Drive, Cleveland, OH 44104.  

The following positions will be on the ballot:
1st Vice President
2nd Vice President
3rd Vice President
Assistant Secretary
Executive Committee members

The Branch’s Nominating Committee issued a recommended slate of twenty for the Executive Committee at the October 18 Branch membership meeting. Five members were then nominated from the floor by petition.

As a result the following 25 names will appear on the ballot for Executive Committee positions:

Benny Bonanno
Terry Butler
Judge Pinkey Carr
Lang Dunbar
Carl S. Ewing
Michelle Felder
Annetta Fisher
Bruce Goode
Blaine Griffin
Leslye Huff
Leonard Jackson
Eric Johnson
Meryl Johnson
Rev. Charles Lucas
Jason Lucas
Dr. Sarah Mack
Mamie Mitchell
Susie Rivers
Leathea Robinson
Rev. Leon Thompson
Theodosia Caviness Tucker
Wendell Turner
Kent Whitley
Harold Wilson
Beverly Wright

The ballots are expected to be counted on the spot, with the results available likely several hours after voting closes. The results will be posted here as soon as they are released.
