DPROA President David Elliston and DPROA Director Boux Bland worked alongside the nine other associations on interviewing candidates for the three non-member Trustees positions for the DPFP board, per our new constitutional amendment that was passed in Austin.

We interviewed 10 candidates last month and chose the best three whom we believe will assist us in keeping our pension in a benevolent state, Bland said.

The three candidates DPROA recommends are Gilbert Garcia, Robert French and Tina Hernandez Patterson.

The DPROA recommends a positive (YES) vote for these candidates.

The ballot forms will be mailed out on July 16 to all members’ and pensioners’ homes or by email to those who elected eCorrespondence.

On Wednesday, July 17 at 8:00 a.m., voting will began, and on Thursday, Aug. 1, at noon, voting will end.

Election results should be available on Aug. 2.
