East Hills is currently in the middle of an all-mail election. On Tuesday, May 2, the church sent out ballots to the (just over 100) official members, so they can vote on two proposed by-laws amendments.
Amendment No. 1 would change the Board of Deacons rules so that we are technically allowed to elect six deacons instead of four, which we have been doing anyway for some time. No. 2 would direct the Elder Board to write and enforce a conflict of interest policy for church leaders. (Full disclosure: I am the son of Ann Hight, Pastor of Women's Ministries, and Tom Hight, an elder.)
If you have one of these ballots, please mail it back or drop it in the box in the church foyer by May 16, because if the total number of votes cast is less than 50% plus one, we do not have a quorum and the outcome does not count.
