Hi All, I know that this isn't a forum for political advancement or
endorsement but everyone probably received their ALA ballots this week and
I'd like to formally encourage all VRTers and video list serv lurkers to
consider voting for Carol Brey as ALA President. In the most recent past,
with past ALA Presidents Sarah Ann Long and Nancy Kranich, the VRT has been
included in strategic planning and the Pres. initiative. We have a great
chance to continue and expand upon that inclusion this time if you consider
voting for Carol. Her platform desires not to recreate the wheel and get
back to basics (or concentrate on what librarians do well) as well as
encouraging things already in the works like the pay initiative, strategic
planning. Carol is a realist and has worked in public libraries all her
career. I would encourage all of you to consider voting for Carol for ALA
President. Thanks. JCS.
