USCF Election

Postby Russell Miller » Tue May 26, 2009 9:22 pm

Please be sure and vote! We need a good vote total from Washington State. Since in past years less than 10% of those who could vote did so. The ballot is part of the June CHESS LIFE.
My choices are Michael Atkins, Mike Nietman, Jim Berry (a current board member) and Ruth Haring.
Read the statements in the recent CHESS LIFE issues and make your choices.
Please DO NOT VOTE for Sam Sloan.
Check the forums on the USCF website for much discussion of USCF issues.

These are interesting and difficult times for the USCF. Due to the malfeasance of board members Susan Polgar and Paul Truong, including a costly, frivolous legal action commenced in Lubbock, Texas, the USCF is in danger of financial destruction. Make no mistake, board member Susan Polgar has sued the organization she has a fiduciary duty to protect for the dual purpose of silencing her USCF member critics and controlling the organization for her own ends.

The USCF membership must set aside many differences and cast their votes so as to keep Lugo, Korenman and Hecht off the USCF board. Their election will, in my opinion, give control of the organization to Polgar and Truong. We can not allow this to happen.

I note that Leroy Dubeck and Tim Redman have endorsed Bill Goichberg. This is an unprecedented display of unity for the USCF’s sake. I applaud them and join them in this endorsement.

Therefore, effective immediately, I hereby withdraw my candidacy for the executive board of the USCF. I urge those who were planning to vote for me to cast their votes for

Bill Goichberg
Ruth Haring
Jim Berry
Mike Atkins

To those who urged me to run and supported my candidacy for the board, I extend my deepest appreciation. If I have failed you by my withdrawal, I can only apologize and ask for your understanding. I urge you to continue to work with me in earnest to help the USCF survive and prosper. There is so much good to be done once the negativity and malfeasance of Susan Polgar, Paul Truong and their supporters is put behind us.

Chess is the most beautiful game ever created. Just ask any kid at a scholastic tournament or an octogenarian playing across the board from you. Chess will always survive. The USCF may not. Please. Please vote for the candidates above.
