Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote in this year’s Co-op election! We congratulate Mohamed El-Sokkary, Micheal Snow, Isa Bella Rogol, and Joshua Simpson on their election and welcome their experience, commitment to community, and dedication to the Olympia Food Co-op as they begin new terms in 2014. We believe Mohamed, Micheal, Isa Bella and Josh are well-rounded individuals who bring a range of experience to the board.
Reelected incumbent Joshua Simpson writes, “I’m excited to continue my work with the Olympia Food Co-op and help the Co-op to fulfill its mission of commitment to social, animal, and food justice through ethical purchasing and especially to work to make these choices available to all Olympians.”
In addition, bylaws changes proposed by the board were passed by large margins, another sign that Co-op members trust the service and volunteer-driven oversight of their elected representatives.
Please stay tuned for upcoming educational and outreach events organized by Olympia BDS, and thank you for doing your part to support democracy and justice in our community. Thank You!
