Houston TASO State Representatives SelectionAt the start of the season I told you I was going to lobby, beg and whatever it took to get us back to the dance floor. (State Crew) You see we are in our third year of seven year probation. I thought the penalty was harsh. It looks like that opportunity might happen.
Two months ago, I asked you the chapter who ever wanted to be on that Ranking committee to show up for the meeting. We had 22 members attend. Out of that I asked for guidelines and criteria, to go by on selecting the top officials. After the guidelines were put into place they were asked to put together a board to identify the top crew and the alternate to be turned in By April 10th noon. Then the 22 members selected a board of 7.
Ranking Committee Chair: Rob Conrey, his assistance were Mary Sledge, Month Valka, Bobby Gonzales, Dave Edwards, Joe Orr and John Scott. The Ranking Committee got together this past weekend. After two hours they came up with the two crews that will represent us at state this year if it happens. The two selections were presented to the board for approval. The board approved these selections by a 6-2-1 vote. The votes were as follows.

We need to support these groups as they represent us this year if it happens. It’s very important that we have a good showing this year. If we don’t it will be a long time before we get another opportunity. So when you see these members wish them the best, uplift them tell them you’re behind them. Next year it might be you. So I am happy to announce the following,
1st Crew: Mary Sledge, Monty Valka, Francis Alleman and John Scott
2nd Crew or Alternate: Toby Tomlinson, Steve Braswell, Rob Conrey and Joe Orr
Good luck on the crews that were selected, Do us proud. Don Milbourn
