CANDIDATE BIOS:


RAYMOND CROSBY
Good Day to everyone. My name is Raymond A Crosby better known as Ray or Rick to most of you, have been a member since 1995, and have served on the Board of Directors since 2015. I currently hold MCEA's Treasurer position which I was asked to assume by Madam President Day in early May of this year. In four short months, I feel that I have seen and learned a lot about the internal operation of our Union. I can honestly say there's more to it then I could ever imagine. However difficult it maybe, I'm learning more about the day to day finances and what it takes to keep our Union running. With this in mind, I would ask your support in electing me for Treasurer of MCEA. I will work hard to initiate getting our rebates again. I will ask all of our chapters to start back or to continue having biannual  meetings every year, and supply the Board of Directors with a copy of their minutes. Not to forget, at this time due to our COVID 19 pandemic with us, virtual meetings will become the norm until a vaccine is found effective. We continue to strive and move ahead not forgetting any of the obligations we have made to our members. I would like the opportunity to do and learn more with your vote and thank you for your time and understanding. Lastly may God bless our union to become better. I am available to answer your questions at racrosby825@gmail.com or 410-598-4621.


JOHN PRINCE
I am honored to be nominated to run for the position of treasurer. I look forward to the opportunity to serve MCEA in new ways. I am a member of MCEA and have been for over 20 years. During my tenure, I served on the board of directors, as chairman of the by-laws committee, chairman of the president's advisory committee, member of the legislative committee, the internal audit committee, member of MCEA Benefits and Trust committee. Most recently, I worked with the past interim treasurer, and current MCEA accountant while employed as the office manager. I have a number of valuable qualities I will bring to the position of treasurer because of my involvement in the aforementioned functions. The experiences provide the springboard from which my serving as treasurer would start and allow me to step into the role quickly. Finally, as a retired State employee, I have the commitment to serve MCEA and I am open to be bonded, if required. This is the best way for me to serve the members of MCEA and the organization by making sure that it's financial viability is sustainable via adherence to the governing by-laws, and all other relevant documents. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments about my candidacy for the position of Treasurer via phone: (443) 929-1566, or email at johpri4@gmail.com.
