Nominations have closed. Following is your roster of candidates and campaign statements:
Commissioner: Danny Gilmore - SJSlide (Incumbent)
Hi Everyone! My name is Danny, and I am one of the founding members of this League! Way back in 2002, Tori Eakes and I with a determined group of women decided that San Jose needed a "League of Their Own" -- and through a lot of hard TEAM work, we got it started. I have been on the board since the very beginning, and have put in several hundreds of hours of volunteering; I have held the position of Vice Commissioner of the “C” Division for four out of six of our years in existence. I have attended meetings, as well as chairing and running several fundraising events, running Play Days and Clinics, and coaching new teams to help this League grow because I care very deeply for our League. I stepped in and assumed the interim role of Commissioner when our League needed one, and I would like to continue as your Commissioner. I feel this last year has been a very successful one, with many changes and much growth. I truly believe in you and this League and I would love to be able to keep serving you. Sincerely,
Vice-Commissioner C-Division: Dawn Whelan - Who's on First (Incumbent)
Hi my name is Dawn W., from the team of WOF.
I am running for VC of C Division. I have been in this spot since the beginning of the year. I have certainly learned a lot more about the league in this position but the most important thing I have learned is to listen to all of you and be "YOUR" voice for our division and league. I feel things have changed for the better and we can only continue in that direction. I would be honored to stay in this roll. Please vote for me.
Vice-Commissioner D-Division: Carina Roque - Stray Cats
Hello all voters. My name is Carina. I have been a member of the league since it started in 2003. I have been on the team Stray Cats. We have been in last place as well as first and places in between. I have found that the league a great place for friendship, learning, and fun. An opportunity has come up and I think I am up for the job. I would like you to vote for me for Vice-Commissioner of D-Division since I have been a part of the league and all the ups and downs of the D division, I can provide what I have noticed, learned, insight (maybe) and serve you to the best of my ability. I want to continue the league's history of respect, camaraderie, and fun. Thanks for your vote.
Treasurer: Cathy Jamieson - Killer Goldfish (Acting Incumbent)
Please vote for me for Treasurer. I'm organized, frugal, & dedicated to keeping our League fees low. Anyhow, no one else wants the job. Thanks for your support & enjoy the rest of summer season! Thanks! Cathy.
Secretary: Sandie Day - (Incumbent)
Hi all,My name is Sandie Day and I'm running for SJWSL League Secretary. I have been a part of this league since the summer of 2004 when I started with the Groundbreakers. I have managed teams (O and Ball Busters) in the D-Division and have been on the board since spring 2005. I was elected Secretary in 2006. Many of you may have noticed my marked absence last year as I was getting through a little cancer, but I am back better than ever. I love this league and the opportunities it has given me to meet new friends and play in a great atmosphere. I would love your vote and I welcome your suggestions always. Game On!
