WhiteTrash BBQ -- Real Pit Barbecue from New York City. This is the story of a fire obsessed guy, living in Brooklyn, with a dream of producing award winning, competition busting, real Barbeque. Come live the dream as I compete around the country in the KCBS Championship Barbecue circuit.

BBQ Politics: KCBS Board of Directors

Let's start the New Year off with a bang...politics. The Kansas City Barbecue Association is holding it's annual elections for the Board of Directors starting tomorrow. If you are a member, please remember to vote.

Here's the slate of candidates for a three year term to the KCBS Board. The following members have accepted nomination and are the Candidates for the 2007 election:
  • Joe Ferguson - Sandy, UT
  • Jack Gibbs, Prairie Village, KS
  • Gene Goycochea,- Imperial Beach, CA
  • Phil Hopkins - Kansas City, MO
  • Larry King, - Lexington, MO
  • Paul Kirk - Roland Park, KS
  • Mike Lake - Shannon, IL
  • Kyle Laval - Lone Jack, MO
  • Linda Mullane, - Williamstown, NJ
  • Steve Ownby, - Kodak, TN
  • Mark Welte - Pueblo, Co
I don't know many of the people who are running, but I heartily support Linda Mullane from Williamstown, NJ for election. The North East needs representation on the board and readers of this blog will be familiar with Linda and her husband Jerry. I can't think of a better person to take our concerns to the board.

I'm also planning on voting for the other folks who live outside of the Kansas City area because I believe that for KCBS to become a truly national organization, it needs to hear and heed a lot more regional voices. In my opinion, it's still to focused on the established contests and teams.

You can read all of the candidates' platforms here. Take a look at them all, but then my barbecue friends, do you duty and vote!
