According to the SPJA Bylaws a Board Director can serve three consecutive terms (2 years each). After that, they need to staff for one year before reapplying for Board Candidate.

The membership vote will be held at the end of the month.

Well, AEG says that the stadium is a go, but the NFL wants a stadium built in Chavez Ravine instead. So, the planned upgrade to the LACC may wait, or it may not. It's hard to tell.

Either way, the current word is that it's unlikely any deals for an NFL deal will be made for the 2013 season.

It still seems like a few years off, I mean it's premature to start building until you have a team lined up. Honestly these things are hard to predict, everything is a 'maybe' until it actually happens.

Okay, the vote has started for the SPJA Board of Directors and the Membership Committee. The polls should close at the end of Halloween and we should know the results soon.

I am running for reelection on the basis that I helped SPJA's financial situation and that I added more checks and balances to ensure that SPJA never has such catastrophic debt again. I am also running on a platform to improve transparency and accountability throughout the organization, like what I have been doing in the past two years.

Here is hoping that the voters agree with me that this is paramount for the organization's future.

I only know that I got a split 50/50 vote, so I got half the yes votes and half the no votes. That is not a majority which means I don't get elected.

I won by one vote last time, and I lost by one vote this time. Kind of ironic how things went this time, especially after I saved AX from all that crushing debt.

Hcoregamer00:

I'm so sorry to hear that.

Considering that you helped to get rid of AX's tremendous debt, one would think that a little gratitude & thanks is in order. (When Micheal Lattanzio left AX, AX was $1.2 million in debt, and not many people would have been able to erase that debt within a few years.) You were one of the Board members who really cared about us fans & you worked your arse off when the AX con was in full swing. (While Marc was absent at the con.)

I daresay that it was your efforts that helped saved AX. (Many people will thank you for that. You have my thanks & gratitude as well.)

It's sad news indeed.

Did Marc Perez also got re-elected?

Damn, this isn't right. Kris, I know you gave it your all and this is what you get in return. It's sad to be honest that within a short time span that the SPJA has become a revolving door. Best of luck to you bud and I'm sure you'll get many support wherever you go.

Well, I just found that Marc Perez will be back as "El Presidente" for AX next year.

Maybe he'll make a sequel to his no show 2012 panel with a "More & More Bad Jokes By The CEO" panel in 2013. I also wonder if he'll cosplay as the "Invisible man" again when the con is in full swing next year. (And get paid with a large salary again for not showing up at AX.)

Guys, we're so fucked.Im sorry but in all honesty,in so disappointed Marc is back.No offense , but that alone makes me pissed as well as the fact someone who sees AX as a fan convention and not just profit for money didnt get elected.

I rather have you Hcordgamer00 then Marc "El presidente" Perez as president anyday.

Ugh, that's not good. Isn't he also still qualified to have another term if re-elected? The next few years will make or break AX. I will be interested to see how AX 2013 will do with no X-Games under Perez.
