Hello Greater Cincinnati Golfers,
Over the past several months a shakeup of sorts within the GCGA (Greater Cincinnati Golf Association) has occurred. John Reis has stepped down from his Executive Director role and contrary to many beliefs; Todd Johnson was not automatically named his successor. The GCGA board decided to create a committee to begin an exhaustive search outside of our region. Bottom line...Todd did not get the job. Todd has grown up in Cincinnati and spent the past 11 years dedicating his life along with his wife and two children to our sport and community. Over those 11 years as the Tournament Director I think we can all agree that our tournaments have shown the excellence we expect from our coveted titles. Whether you point out the simple things like the GCGA flags and tents or the larger tournament improvements like the online scoring system, Todd has consistently showed his ability through hard work and dedication to produce great tournaments.
This petition is our effort to show the Board of the GCGA that the Cincinnati community of competitive golfers appreciates Todd's efforts and believes he deserves the role which he was groomed over the last 11 years to earn. Sincerely, thank you for your consideration and support.
p.s. A full Board meeting is scheduled for Jan.9th where a majority vote mandates any selection so we have time to make our voice count.
The amount of time, energy anf effort put into GCGA over the years should not be overlooked. I believe it should be rewarded. Todd deserves the nod.
As a former short term board member, I want to note this is Todd's position and his only.
