Linden Youth Athletic Associ-
ation officials have announced a
mid-year special election of board
members beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 21, in the Lin-
den-Kildare Elementary School
Cafeteria.
T-Ball, baseball and softball prac-
tices for that evening have been
canceled.
LYAA President Nathan Tram-
mell called for the special election
after a request was made by Robbie
Johnson with support from oth-
er members of the youth baseball
community.
“After the recent financial diffi-
culty, which was resolved by the
board, many in the community feel
that a change in leadership is need-
ed,” Trammell said. “Mr. Johnson
and some others don’t agree with
the way the board handled the situ-
ation so they’ve asked for this elec-
tion.”
All officer positions will be up
for either re-election or election of
new candidates. The positions and
incumbents are: President, Nathan
Trammell; Vice President of Base-
ball Operations, Daniel Delese; Sec-
retary, Tamara Carrell (interim);
Treasurer, vacant; Commissioner
of T-Ball, Jody Turner (interim);
Commissioner of 8U, Jerimie Fore-
man; Commissioner of 10U, Trey
Schuler (interim); Commissioner
of 12U, Chris Jackson (interim);
Commissioner of 14U, vacant; and
Vice President of Basketball Oper-
ations, Jerry Arnold (interim).
These positions will be permanent
until the annual officer election is
held during the first two weeks in
October.
Plans are to create positions for
Commissioner of Boys Basketball
and Commissioner of Girls Basket-
ball, which Trammell said will be
filled in October as well.
“Any citizen of Linden who is in
sympathy with the objectives of
LYAA may attend and participate,”
Trammel said. All parents of play-
ers, both baseball and basketball
are encouraged to come and vote
for their candidates of choice.
All candidates either sitting or
nominated must be in attendance.
Ballots will be given to all adults
and voting will be in secret. Votes
will be tabulated and the results
announced before the conclusion
of the meeting. All newly elected
officers will assume their posts
and duties at the conclusion of the
meeting.
“Hopefully,” Trammell said, “this
will put to rest the issues of the
past and we can move forward with
our business, and ‘Our business is
kids.’”
