Four Way Tie
Tonight was officer election night at the Golden Key meeting. There are about 10 officer positions. A few of them didn't need elections because people ran unopposed. The historian spot was fairly highly sought after with 4 candidates. Each of them gave a great speech about their qualifications and vision for GK. They were all so good and just about as good as each other that I could not decide for whom to vote. Turns out that everyone else (on average) must have felt the same way because there was a 4 way tie. Oh, and I abstained! (Someone else voted for a fictional name) I could have been the deciding vote...but I don't think that would have been very fair since I don't have a strong preference. Now they are all going to have to put together a portfolio and the person who produces the best quality work gets the job. In a room with ~30 other people, I'm surprised that it came down to the wire like that. A 2 way tie would not have surprised me, but the 4 way was pretty interesting.
