CHCA Vote Counting Continues on May 1

Update 2. 2 PM May 1: The vote counting for the CHCA election is being done at St. Paul's Parish House, 22 E. Chestnut Hill Avenue, Chestnut Hill, from 1 to 5 PM on Monday. Observers are welcome, it is said.

Update 1. Noon May 1: The vote counting for the CHCA election is now expected to be completed by Thursday, May 4, it was reported by several sources on May 1.

People involved in the 2006 Chestnut Hill Community Association directors' election report the vote count continuing Monday, May 1, as election judges grapple with a large turnout and an extensive candidate list.

"Nothing is out of order during the count," an observer reported. "Rev. Cutler appears to be paying reasonably good attention to what is going on."

On Saturday morning it was estimated that 400 ballots had been counted, with "probably half going to one slate and half of them going to the other slate. You might say 200 each or there abouts. They still have lots of ballots to be counted," our source passed on to Notebook. "The election count will go on for three days easy," the source said on Sunday. "Questionable names and addresses will be verified by Cheryl Masarro at the Local.. As long as the counted votes are safely stored at night, all will be pretty fair counting in this election. Rev. Cutler is doing a great job."

The source reported on Sunday that "the Action Alliance had the edge on Second Opinion (maybe 5 to 10%) but there is continued heavy voting for SOC."

"I think we have done about 400 to 500 ballots so far and it's going to be a reasonably close election with big numbers and probably more historically than ever before," the source added on Sunday evening. "This shall be a significant election for Chestnut Hill, one to talk about; a record turnout and with lots of community energy. I understand we (CHCA) picked up about 80 to 100 new members during this election -- about $2,600 dollars for the coffers for CHCA."

The source concluded wih this observation -- "I think counting will continue past Monday."

John,
Nice to see you doing some reporting for a change. The society page was an ill fit. Now we just need to find you a decent editor.

chestnut hill didn't pick the right editor cause they'd rather go bankrupt by their own stupidity instead of being proactive in dealing with the reality of the situations that exist in chestnut hill. perplexing isn't it. somewhat self defeating.

can your vanity really be that infantile and narrow that you just can't see the truth to the situation? none of you would ever make a good student or jouralist in life.

To MRJ & Yoko:

You should know that reports on blogs come in from more than one source. I don't write everything that appears in CH Notebook.
And as far as "getting Chestnut Hill out of my system," it's more a matter of seeing a bad wound getting worse, and wanting to help heal it.
The Stewart Graham/Douglas Doman/Maxine Dornemann/Crusty Old Trustees group and their minions --Leatherface Hausermann, the Beckers, Jain, SuperBrat Snowden --need to named and exposed. All this black humor and "rude" reporting is to wake people up as to how to do that.

The previous comments here appear to be directed at the owner of this blog and not referencing the separate topics of the CHCA Board or The Local at all.

Are you a good student in life? Or just another sloppy jouralist{sic}?

- just another vain, narrow infant (I guess)
