Approved 8 Jul 2003

Business Carried Over from Previous Month


After Ms. Rippee's motion to set aside 02-19 failed for lack of a quorum (see October minutes), discussion resumed briefly on Ms. Cortez' amended version of 02-19 until Ms. Rippee called the question. With 5 "yes" votes, 4 "no" votes, and 4 members not voting, the amended motion failed. (11/2/02)

After both a motion to set aside 02-19, and a motion to amend it failed, voting commenced on the original 02-19. The motion failed (11/7/02), 3 yes votes to 7 no votes, with 3 members not voting.
