Mary B, where was the ITHA from the start since the herpes brokeout at hawthorne? they came out late, halfhearted, and basically piss-poor attempts to cover their a$$ IMO



Which barn are your horses in?
What did you want done that didn"t get done?

From those "old" bylaws, nothing about term limits:

"The President shall be elected by the members for a three (3) year term commencing with the fall 2006 election and may continue to run and serve if re-elected."

As far as electioneering rules it just says the Board shall adopt separate rules on those to be distributed to the candidates. They're not part of the bylaws themselves, or at least didn't used to be.

Extending the contract of the Ex Director was to make a more consistant transition with a new Pres.  In the past, the first thing every new Pres did was fire the Ex Director, and the next guy came in cold, not knowing the issues and the players, not even being to match names to faces.  With the pending legislation, gaming, ADW, impact fees, the board felt it prudent to have Glen in place regardless of the outcome of the election. 

The way Chicago treats the Ex Director position is different than any other racing jurisdiction.  It's been a perk for the President's friends and owners for a long time.  Other states retain their ex Directors no matter who is Pres. ( ex: Maryland has employed Wayne Wright for 35 years, 8 or 9 Presidents, Marty Maline, Kent Stirling, ... ).

Everything about the job has changed over the years.  We've gone from win, place, show, daily double betting on a handshake with the tracks, being primarily a benevolence organization, to being intimately involved writing legislation.

So yes, that was a change to the bylaws, removing the condition that the ex director serves at the pleasure of the President.

That was a good change, competence over comradery

Christine held the office at one time. Either she got tired of it, or the members got tired of her, I don't recall.
Yes, she did and I think not for sure she was president? Thank her for RECAPTURE thumbs down. Once we get this Casino Bill passed the RECAPTURE goes away finally.

It's not what i want done for me, its what shoulda been done from the outset for everyone, most of all the horses! as far as your other question theres a 50+ page thread thats been locked, im sure youve been following along
