Transcript JANUARY 30, 1987/MONTROSE VOICE 11 Business Guild Holds Elections Amidst Dispute By Sheri Cohen Darbonne Montrose Voice Following an emotional debate over the former president's eligibility to run for the office again, members ofthe Greater Montrose Business Guild elected a new slate of officers and seven members to the board of trustees on Wednesday, Jan. 28. The guild's new president is Frank Turner of F.W. Turner and Associates Insurance. Other elected officers are Mike Reuter, vice president; Linda Reynolds, secretary; and Craig Litton, treasurer. Elected to serve two-year terms on the board of trustees were Joe Porro, Bill Yon, George Benedict, David King and Teri Shaw. Board members elected to one-year terms were Marjorie Kerr and Norman Guttman. Bob Bagot and Elroy Forbes, whose two-year terms have not expired, remain on the board. Phyllis Frye received four write-in votes for president, despite the fact she had been declared a non-member and thus ineligible to run earlier in the meeting. The slate recommended by the guild's nominating committee ran unopposed for the positions after the only other nominee, Tom Graham, declined to accept a board position. Graham said that although he could not serve on the board, he might be able to assist the guild as a legal advisor. Acting president Bill Yon, who chaired the meeting, said the offer could be discussed at a later general meeting. A motion introduced by Jim Murphy, who said it was not clear whether or not Frye was still a member of the guild, to vote on her membership touched off a somewhat tense discussion centering on the organization's by-laws and tech nicalities of parliamentary procedure. At one point, "Robert's Rules of Order," the most widely accepted parliamentarian reference, was ruled not to apply under the by-laws. Murphy was informed by the chair that the membership could not vote on stated flatly that he had neither received nor rejected such a letter. Frye, who has claimed repeatedly that she sent the letter to Bagot and personally delivered a copy to Yon, told the Montrose Voice Wednesday morning that she had received the letter back. well- Newly elected Greater Montrose Business Guild officers are (I. to r.) Frank Turner, president; Linda Reynolds, secretary; Craig Litton, treasurer; and Mike Reuter, vice president whether a member who resigned was still a member, but could vote on whether or not to accept the resignation. Murphy amended his motion, moving that the membership vote to refuse Frye's resignation. Lou Vanech asked board chairman Bob Bagot to respond to accusations by Frye that he rejected a certified letter mailed Jan. 20 wherein she rescinded her resignation from the guild. Bagot with a handwritten refusal on the envelope. Frye resigned as president and member of the guild Jan. 15, but claims she verbally rescinded on Jan. 16 in a telephone conversation with Yon. Yon acknowledged that he asked Frye to reconsider her resignation Jan. 16, but did not indicate that she rescinded. Bagot referred to the resignation and a series of letters sent by Frye to guild members and the press as planned publicity stunt." The first vote on refusal of the resignation resulted in 13 votes to refuse and seven abstentions. A roll-call vote of all valid voting members was called, resulting in 14 "yea" votes, with 11 members abstaining. Bagot reminded members that guild by-laws required a two-thirds majority vote to pass a motion. Brian Keever then pointed out that members who abstain are not considered to have voted under Robert's Rules Order. But Yon called for a reading of the section of the by-laws pertaining to the two-thirds majority. It was pointed out that the organizational by-laws specified a majority "of members present" to pass the motion, making no provision to exclude those who abstain. Robert's was ruled not to prevail, and the motion was declared defeated. In spite of the resignation dispute, Frye, who did not attend the meeting, was presented a certificate of appreciation honoring her for efforts and accomplishments during her terms as president. Frye's companion Trish, who accepted the award, called it "an insult" and "an attempt to coverup what has happened." The guild presently has about 120 member businesses and organizations. Its stated function is to promote the "Greater Montrose" area as a place to live, work and do business.
