“Special thanks to all the NAACP supporters who came out to vote in this NAACP election on (Nov. 9). I invite each and every one of our members to join the executive officers and executive committee to work together to make a difference in our community. There is much work to do, so we need everyone,” Moss said. “More specifically we need to join forces to help eradicate human injustices in the workplace and in the community in areas of employment, housing, and prison reform; violence in our neighborhoods; and shortcomings of the school systems that do not accept education as a civil right that fully prepares all children equally, regardless of color, for the job of the future.”
All five executive officers including First Vice President Constance Parker, Second Vice President Marcella Lee, Third Vice President Johnnie Miott, Secretary Imogene Hines and Treasurer Anna Hollis, ran unopposed and were re-elected.
Based on the list of executive committee members prior to the election, Alma Harris, Alan Lincoln, Will Thompkins and Regina Ragin did not run for reelection to the executive committee. One newcomer to the committee is Harvey Smith who will serve as the youth chair.
