On page 12 of Americans Elect’s Mission Report, Americans Elect CEO Kahlil Byrd clearly indicates that Americans Elect will be continuing its activities:
"With this first phase, Americans Elect did not get all that we wanted. We have made a good start -- thinking through and acting on the activity of bringing the nominating process and elected leaders closer to the people, and opening up the doors to the change necessary to win this battle overall.
The AE community will in no way turn back now. More to do.
But 66 pages in to the Mission Report (not yet scanned in, but see photos here), Americans Elect declares:
"On June 26, 2012, the Organization’s Board of Directors approved a plan of dissolution, which they expect to complete by December 31, 2012. Management’s plans concerning these matters are also discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements."
And a few pages later, Americans Elect reiterates:
"On June 26, 2012, Americans Elect’s Board of Directors approved a plan of dissolution. Americans Elect expects to complete the dissolution of the organization by the end of 2012. Americans Elect’ assets, including its intellectual property and brand, will be sold, transferred and/or distributed as approved by the Board. Individuals or organizations who obtain such assets may use those assets to further and/or expand Americans Elect’s original mission."
No Turning Back. More to Do. Dissolving and Selling Our Assets by Christmas.
How do you make sense of this paradox?
