Minutes of November 5 Meeting:

Vice Chairman John Bajumpaa called the meeting toorder at 7:50 P.M. The members in attendance introduced themselves, identifying their affiliationwith the 4Cs, whether representing a member club or as individual members.  Previous Meeting Minutes: A motion to accept the minutes of the August 6, 2018 meeting as published in the November - December2018 issue of The Voice was seconded and passed.Treasurer’s Report:Treasurer John Jarush reported the bank balances as of October 28, 2018. A motion to accept the Treasurer’s report was seconded and passed. Legislative Report: Dave Bajumpaa noted that the Legislative session will begin January 9, 2019 and, being the long session,will continue through early June 2019. So far, we have heard nothing about possible legislation adverse to the automobile hobby. Nevertheless, we will continue our efforts monitoring the legislature and to that end, Dave made a motion to continue to engage Hughes and Cronin (Carroll Hughes) as our legislative monitor. The fee of $3,500 plus sales tax and the other terms and conditions are unchanged from last year. The motion was seconded and unanimously passed. Dave speculated on the results of tomorrow’s (November 6) election, noting that we can expect at a minimum the appointment of a new DMV commissioner after a new governor takes office. The current commissioner, Michael Bzdyra, when still the Deputy, was helpful to us when the change from the“Early American” to “Classic Vehicle” license plate designation was vetted and accomplished.Dave also noted, as reported in August, that longtime 4Cs supporter Representative Tony Guerrera, who was the House Chair of the Transportation Committee gave up his House seat to pursue election to the Senate. However, he did not prevail in the primary and so will not be in office in the new session.Our current plans include seeking a change to the State’s titling rules for vehicles 20 years old and older. There is the possibility that this can be achieved through procedural changes not requiring new legislation. Election of Officers As previously reported, Phil Hamilton decided to not seek re-election to Chairman this year, but indicated his interest in remaining on the Board in another position. Consequently, Vice Chairman John Bajumpaa volunteered as candidate for Chairman, and Phil volunteered for Vice Chairman. This year Scott Macgregor was re-elected to a Member-at-Large position for a two year term. Ken Useted’s Member at-Large two year term will end on 12/31/2019. With no other nominations from the floor, by unanimousvote of the members present, the former slate of officers was re-elected with the change as noted above.Website and Calendar of Events:John Bajumpaa reported that the Facebook page now has 388 members and the website continues to get consistent hits.
