This is APFA National Communications Coordinator Liz Geiss with a special APFA hotline update for Thursday, August 12, 2004.
As was previously reported on this hotline, the Department of Labor determined that, as part of its ongoing investigation into election complaints filed in connection with the recent national officer runoff election, it would count an additional 16 ballots that were previously cast but not counted in the election for APFA president. That count took place this afternoon and the results are as follows:
Of the 16 additional ballots counted, Tommie Hutto-Blake received 14 votes and John Ward received 2 votes. When combined with the previous totals, Ms. Hutto-Blake has received a total of 7,407 votes and Mr. Ward has received a total of 7,400 votes.
The Department of Labor has confirmed that this additional ballot count does not trigger an immediate change in office holder. It is anticipated that the APFA will, in the near future, be receiving additional information from the DOL with respect to its findings with regard to all the pending election complaints. Following that, the APFA Board of Directors will formulate an appropriate specific response to the DOL that will outline its intended course of action . APFA will continue to fully cooperate with the DOL in its conduct of the ongoing investigation into the pending election complaints.
Thank you for calling. This hotline will be updated as events warrant.
