For those who have been waiting to hear the entire slate of Hispanic Baptist Convention of Texas officers announced in this spot, I apologize for the delay. We’ve announced it on the BGCT web site, but not here.
The officers are (l-r): Third Vice President Tiny Dominguez, Second Vice President Jesse Rincones, First Vice President Manuel Rios, President Victor Rodriguez and Secretary Alex Camacho.
I mentioned in my last post that multiple votes were taken to elect Rodriguez as president. Convencion rules require the winner of the presidential election to get at least 50 percent of the vote. With five strong candidates running, that did not happen. So one candidate dropped out.
So a vote was taken with foru candidates on the ballot, but no one person received more than 50 percent. When two of those candidates pulled out of the race, the third and final vote resulted in Victor Rodriguez garnering the majority of the votes.
While it is fairly normal for multiple people to run for any Convencion office, this year’s elections were particularly competitive. This slate of officers will lead Convencion into next year’s 100th anniversary celebration. That should be a wonderful gathering.
