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'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!
