AB 16-06 Motion to accept solicited lawyer advise concerning CS succession
July 2, 2016
Motion to accept the lawyer’s advice that we, the Admiralty Board (AB), solicited via our Inspector General IG). We accept that the Vice-Commander STARFLEET (VCS) was appointed by our (the AB) actions and confirmation, and as such the VCS succeeds to the Commander STARFLEET (CS).
This resolution, should it pass, establishes the following:
1) Confirming that the role of Acting CS is a temporary one with limited powers to see to the day-to-day operations of the organization until such time as the valid CS or VCS return to duty, or is otherwise formally confirmed by the AB
2) Confirm that process and documentation, over that of individuals in any given roles, are what our documentation refers to, and we, the AB, shall follow in future interpretations.
3) This will place Commodore Robin Woodell-Vitasek as CS effective immediately upon vote completion. We allow for, and ask both the new CS and the Admiral Robert Westfall as the Acting CS to have an appropriate period of transition.
4) We thank Admiral Robert Westfall for his work as Acting Commander STARFLEET during this challenging time.
RC Jeremy Carsten of Region 3 made the motion.
RC David Nottage of Region 4 seconded.
