Mystic Valley NAACP Holds Biennial Officer ELECTIONS

Mystic Valley Area Branch of NAACP Return Atty. Neil Osborne and Its Executive Committee Team to Another Term of Service

Medford, MA—Pursuant to National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s Constitution and By-laws the membership of the Mystic Valley Area Branch held an election for officers and executive committee members.  During the branch’s General Membership meeting, held on November 26, 2012 at its usual meeting place at the West Medford Community Center, members in good standing voted to again elect:

Atty. Neil Osborne of Medford    President,

Rev. Dr. David Kilpatrick of Malden     Vice President ,

Anna Ekpenyong of Medford  Treasurer,

Dotty Walker Gomez of Everett  Secretary,

and the following as Executive Committee members:

Jeff Cowen of Waltham,

Pearl Morrison of Arlington,

Allison Francis of Medford,

Joseph Jones of Medford and

Rev. Florence King of Medford.

Attorney Osborne remarked that his election to a third term at the helm of local branch of the NAACP represents the confidence the civil rights community has in him and the direction of the branch.  Within the past term the branch re-established its youth division,  actively participated in voter registration efforts and legislative forums,  participated in direct action on the Boston Common regarding the Trayvon Martin matter and opposition to Stand your Ground legislation rally in New York City, as well as organized a discussion on 3 Strikes legislation.  While the branch continues to move in a positive direction there is so much more we can do to support issues important to communities of color locally and nationally.  Membership at the local level is a key factor to achieving our goals and the foundation of a strong National organization.  A strong membership pool helps support the work of the branch’s Standing Committees on Education, Health, Legal Redress, Economic Development, and Membership to produce sufficient local civil rights advocacy.

Attorney Osborne’s chief aim during his next term is raising the number of active members in the branch.
