During the election of treasurer it became interesting. After Angie Richards was nominated she then nominated Brandon Madery for the position.

She turned down her nomination for the position citing that she served as treasurer last year and thought it would be good for another board member to serve in the role. Madery was given the position as no one ran against him.
