WSM Election Task Force

In January of 2008, the Board of Weaver Street Market Co-operative convened a Task Force of its Worker-Owners and Consumer-Owners to consider new rules for Board elections and strategies for improving voter turnout by stimulating increased Owner interest in the affairs of Weaver Street. I served on that Task Force.

In addition to participating in wide-ranging discussions on all aspects of Weaver Street, both as a grocery store and as a co-operative, I submitted a ‘blueprint’ for improving the democratic structure of Weaver Street. That document is entitled “Tasty Platypus,” for reasons that would only be apparent if you’d been there – so, next time, make sure that you are!

The Task Force’s Preliminary Summary, and the Minutes of all of its deliberations may be accessed here.
