The proposal failed to be introduced by a vote of 2 aye and 2 no. Trustee Wilson has requested the opportunity to ask the Board of Trustees to approve a change of his vote from an aye to a nay . This change would not change the results of the vote on thi s item. Trustee Yates then turned the floor over to Trustee Wilson. Trustee Wilson: Good Evening Board and Staff, I would like to apologize for failing to get a clear understanding of the motion at that time and having to take the time tonight to ask it again. However, as the Secretary Treasurer mentioned, I understood the motion to be a review or vote on the staffs’ recommendation, as opposed to a vote on how to proceed. As such, I was voting to accept the staff recommendation of not moving forward wi th another review, when the vote was on whether to move forward with the review. My vote should have been a nay . Please allow my vote to be changed from a yay to a nay . Trustee Yates: Thank you, Trustee Wilson. With that, per Robert’s Rules of Order, does any Board Member object to Trustee Wilson changing his vote from aye to no? With there being no objections, Secretary-Treasurer will you please adjust the record.
