Water system executive director Billy Sublett broached the subject of proxies at the Holley Navarre Water System board meeting Sept. 22. Sublett sought approval of the board to send out a letter to the water board members regarding the election in Jan. 2016. The proposed letter would inform the members they could show up to vote on the assigned day, or come by the office or call the office for a proxy.
Currently the water system bylaws state that proxies are allowed in the voting for new board members, but do not stipulate how proxies are to be used. “Don’t fool yourselves; we know how they (proxies) are controlled and swayed. Whoever collects the most proxies wins – that is not a true election,” said board member Troy Bossier.
