Meeting Minutes from the 1st Board of Governors Meeting

October 11, 2009

The 1st annual Hugoville Board of Governors meeting took place on Saturday, October 10 at approximately 9pm.  States represented included New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.  Not one member brought a piece of paper or even a pencil, so a written transcript of all discussions, motions, and resolutions is nonexistent. The discussion was lively and the debate vigorous.

Each delegation presented perspectives on their chartered province(s): New Jersey (Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical-ology); New York (Education, Information Technology, Finance); Connecticut (Personal Wellness, Entrepreneurship); Virginia (Food Production and Distribution, Business Management); Ohio (Climatology/ Meteorology, Advanced Software Development); Pennsylvania (Engineering, Communications).

As referenced previously, the failure to assign a scribe for the meeting was considered the following morning to be the premier folly of this historic gathering of intellects.

One of the members of the New York delegation gave an unexpected yet highly interesting presentation on the general state of the nation.  So remarkable was the oration that this member had nightmares that night.  (And not my usual ones; these were notably darker and more disturbing.)  Thank you, New York.

The first official order of business that night was to elect a new fire starter and keeper for next year’s meeting.  After a feigned debate, it was unanimously decided that next year’s honor would go to anybody except the person responsible for maintaining the fire this year.

An informal meeting took place the next morning with representation from a few of the states in attendance.  Over muffins, a question was raised about a comment the night previous from one of the members. The comment was, in fact, a clear and concise explanation as to the process by which it was determined who they would vote for in the previous presidential election.  At the ad hoc meeting in the morning, it was agreed that voting solely based on aesthetics does save time, but perhaps other things ought to be considered.  It was resolved that a study would be performed in Hugoville to determine if there is any correlation between physical beauty (i.e. facial symmetry) and good governance.  In essence, to answer the age-old question:  Does the candidate that is better looking, govern better?  In the meantime, by a vote of 4 to 3, it was determined that Connecticut could remain in Hugoville.

Meeting was adjourned at 9 a.m on Sunday, October 11.

    What should one do if both candidates are equal in visual appeal?

    What if one is slightly less attractive than the other but knows how to start a fire, while the obviously more handsome gentleman sometimes struggles with this task?

    Let’s focus on the question, ” Does the candidate that is better looking, govern better? ”
    As an outsider I will allege that, “Beauty is in the eyes of the beerholder, and the candidate who dispenses the most beer wins.”

    Now that’s good governance!

    Hugo is spreading, like the stink bug. He’s taking West Virginia by storm!
