The carbon neutrality bylaw didn’t pass.

My proposal to offset Kingman’s carbon emissions due to electricity and natural gas usage didn’t pass. There were 32 votes in favour versus 10 against, and it needed 36 (two-thirds of 54) to pass.

Hmm. 48 ballots were collected, so two-thirds of the ballots collected actually were in favour. But the president used the threshold of two-thirds of the membership, and it didn't meet that threshold.

I guess i’ll just bring up the matter again in the fall.
