Tresrdentml m 255699 Keith Elston: President
Elections are here for board positions with GSO. (More info inside). I would like to take a
moment to talk about what is expected of board members.
First, a board member should attend all meetings unless (s)he previously asks to be
excused. Good excuses include 1) extreme illness 2) extreme illness of close relatives or
lover(s) 2” dead: of close relatives or lover(s) 4) your own death——next of kin must
provide a death certificate and/or your body 5) other (at discretion of chairperson).
Secondly, each board member is accountable at each meeting for any committees (s)he may
head. This includes a report, if any, on all activities of those committees. Thirdly, and
most important, the ability to get along well with the other members of the board. It is
crucial to cur organization that we be able to discuss, maybe disagree, but still remain
friends. A board that is indecisive will never be able to serve the best interests of GSO
or the gay community.
Fourthly, these positions are not just titles! They require work. If a nominee does not
plan. on making a commitment to work. for this organization, then (s)he should xvithdraw
her/his name from the slate.
Lastly, I would urge everyone to attend this very important meeting on June6 and cast your
vote for the new board. Good luck to all the candidates.
In sometime or "any..." ”y On Monday, May 23, the Lexington Herald—Leader ran a front page,
person must fake the responsibility question-and-answer format interview with the president of 080,
losay‘lun.u” Keith Elston.
This is a great step forward for Lexington, G30 and the gay community. It represents a turn—
ing point in our battle to create and maintain a more understanding and peaceful environment
in which to live.
The article dealt sensitively with such issues as gay teachers, morality, legislation, coming
out, stereotypes, and the church. Let us hope that this is just the first of many articles ,
aimed at dispelling literally a lifetime of oppression and misunderstanding.
GSO is anticipating a substantial anti—gay response to this article and in the spirit of
Gay Pride Month, urges you and your friends to write letters of support to the editor of
the Herald-Leader. The address is: Letters to the Editor
