Buzzsaw Spotlight: 2015-16 National President-Elect Candidate Q&A

We are looking ahead to elections for the upcoming term that will be held at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) at National Convention. There are two certified candidates running for National President-Elect for the upcoming term: Monica Uriarte (San Francisco #4) and Brian Noble (Santa Rosa #50). Each was posed a number of questions submitted to Tommy Lovell, Region 4 Director, and asked to answer in a Q&A format. We have attached those below for your review. Both candidates can be contacted via their candidate facebook pages: Brian and Monica or through email. Please take a moment to review Brian and Monica's responses and we look forward to seeing them both speak at AGM in June!
