Minutes, February 5, 2020 P a g e | 2 <br /> <br />In addition to the printed report Ms. Morton provided the Board with information on the <br />status of spending in the current year budget and negotiations on the budget for the <br />fiscal year beginning on July 1, 2020. Spending for the current year is within budget but <br />she highlighted a continuing concern with the FY 2020 budget, specifically the fact that <br />the City has not approved funding for printing ballots for the November 3, 2020 General <br />Election. The Board members expressed dismay that this vital Presidential Election <br />expenditure should be in question. <br /> <br />Appointment of Officers of Election <br /> <br />Mr. Mash presented applications for 11 individuals wishing to be reappointed as officers <br />of election plus three requesting first-time appointment. In addition, there was one other <br />applicant that was recommended for rejection by the General Registrar. The board <br />reviewed the applications, accepted the Registrar’s recommendations, and, on a motion <br />by the Chair, seconded by the Vice Chair, unanimously approved the following for <br />appointment to a three-year term: <br /> <br />Reappointed <br />Herb Beskins <br />John Donnolly <br />Barbara Dulaney <br />Mary Jensen <br />Ann Loper <br />George Loper <br />Barbara Seidler <br />Michale Powers <br />John Seidler <br />William Siegal <br />Dennis Trissel <br /> <br />First time appointment <br />Asia Astrid Abdulu <br />Helen Atkins <br />Sophie Skinner <br /> <br />Update on Absentee Voting and Officer of Election Assignments <br /> <br />Ms. Morton distributed copies of a VERIS cumulative control report providing details on <br />the progress of absentee voting as of the close of business on the date of the meeting. <br />In-person absentee voting has been slow but there has been a good demand for mailed <br />ballots presumably an indication that, while interest in the primary may be high, many <br />voters remain undecided. <br />
