This is Liz Geiss, APFA National Communications Coordinator, with a Special Hotline update for Wednesday, August 18, 2004.
The Department of Labor recently counted 16 additional ballots for the position of APFA President. This resulted in a change in the outcome of the election. On the basis of this result, the Department of Labor has expressed the position that Tommie Hutto-Blake should be installed as the President of APFA. The Department of Labor will shortly be providing additional information pursuant to its investigation in the near future.
The APFA Board of Directors will be meeting on Wednesday, August 25th, to consider an appropriate response to the Department of Labor’s findings and recommended action, and to consider the further information that is to be forthcoming from the Department of Labor.
This Hotline will be updated as events warrant. Now please stay on the line for the regular APFA Hotline.
