Joni:

This request to have oversight of the election process should be brought up at the next EC meeting. Clearly any participation by outside parties cannot interfere with the collection or counting process. I trust that you already know that the independent accounting firm is not required to follow our in-house election parameters. Your suggestions below seem to indicate this action. Your proposal also seems to assert that FTB would be the only organization outside of EC members. I am sure if FTB were involved that Free the TWH and possibly others would also want to be involved. This may not be feasible within the contraints of space in the firm.

Mr. Chuck Cadle

Executive Director

TWHBEA

P. O. Box 286

Lewisburg, TN 37091

Dear Mr.Cadle:

We believe that you as well as your Executive Committee want a fair and impartial vote count in the upcoming TWHBEA National Board election. To ensure those results, we propose the following:

1. All ballots be secured at the Arab, AL Post Office until October 15th by Post Office personnel after they make their daily ballot count.

2. Ballots will be picked up at the Arab, AL Post Office at 8 AM on October 15th by a representative of Cook & Co. accompanied by a member of the Executive Committee and a member of Free The Breeders and delivered unopened to the office of Cook & Co. in Arab, AL.

3. Immediately following delivery, the ballots will be counted by Cook & Co. in the presence of the Executive Committee and Free The Breeders representatives.

These procedures will assure the members of the Association and the candidates that proper measures have been followed to prevent a recurrence of the irregularities in the 2006 election.

We look forward to your reply by Tuesday, September 11th.

Regards,

Dee Dee Sale, Chairman

Free The Breeders
