    DAJ 2019 Kansai Chapter Election Results

    Dear DAJ Kansai membership,

    The 2019 Kansai Nomination and Election Committee (KNEC) is pleased to announce the results of the 2019 Kansai Chapter election. Votes in the 2019 Kansai Chapter election were counted on September 15th and recorded by the KNEC as follows:

    Total ballots cast: 4 (completed and confirmed membership)


    • Kevin Lane - 4 votes, 100% of total votes (WINNER)


    • Margaret Tomoko Brennan - 4 votes, 100% of total votes (WINNER)


    • Steven Breyak - 4 votes, 100% of total votes (WINNER)


    • Raymond Kunikane Terhune - 4 votes, 100% of total votes (WINNER)

    Thank you to everyone who ran as a candidate and voted in this election. For future elections, the KNEC would like to see more active campaigning to reach at least 20 voters. However, due to the circumstances of this election, we understand the depressed turnout.

    Looking forward to see what you’ll accomplish for the DAJ Kansai Chapter!
