“Island Senior” is a reg­u­lar col­umn on the San Juan Update writ­ten by Peg­gy Sue McRae…

This year’s elec­tion of can­di­dates for the Mullis Center’s Oper­a­tions Com­mit­tee has been unprece­dent­ed in many ways. To fill every seat more peo­ple ran for posi­tions than ever before.

With over 900 bal­lots com­ing in more peo­ple vot­ed for the Dis­trict Com­mit­tee than ever before. The vot­ing and the vote count­ing; with over­seers, lawyers on hand, and the sher­iff secur­ing the bal­lot box at night, was more con­tentious than ever before and the process more trans­par­ent and secure than ever before. Hence, the wait for final results was also unprece­dent­ed but final­ly, now, the results are in.

Many thanks to the com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers who stepped up to run for a seat on the Dis­trict Com­mit­tee; it is a hard work­ing com­mit­tee. Thanks also to the many islanders who came out to vote even when it meant stand­ing in line in the rain. You all showed us how much you care about our senior cen­ter and our seniors and dis­abled com­mu­ni­ty. Thank you!
