SEMA COUNTY COORDINATOR REPRESENTATIVE
2008 Campaign Page

Welcome, my name is Kemis Massey and I'm running for SEMA CC representative. Before you can vote for me you need to know a little about me.

I've been with the GAGenWeb Project since late 2000, starting as a CC for Muscogee County. Later I added Chattahoochee and Clayton Counties. I've served as the West Central GA Regional Assistant for the last two years. In this position I work closely with the CCs in the west Central Region of Georgia helping them out with their pages, clarifying any questions, and promoting a sharing of ideas. This has broadened my understanding of the importance of the County Coordinator to USGenWeb Project. The CC really is the core to our project.

I'm currently serving as a CC representative on the Grievance committee, my term will be up this month. As part of the committee, I reviewed and voted on several complaints. It's great there is a process in place to ensure that we are treated fairly. On the National level I recently served on a fact finding committee. We reviewed state procedures for information on non-profit status. I am list administrator for several county and surname lists and message boards.

I'm married to a wonder man John, who supports my quest for finding our roots. He even wanders around cemeteries with me. He's been very helpful in a few cemetery clean-ups.

In 2001, I responded to an email on the Muscogee County list and set out to find a local cemetery. What I found was a jungle and a trash dump. I got vocal about what I found and we've now established Clapp Factory Cemetery Preservation League - dedicated to it's restoration and protection. I'm currently secretary / treasurer to the group. The biggest challenge has been finding family members willing to help. I'm currently working on a web page for the group and hope to be able to present it to public soon.

If elected, I promise to treat others as I want to be treated - fairly, with dignity and respect.

Whether you vote for me or not, please take the opportunity to VOTE, it's really important to all of us.

Thanks for your consideration, Kemis Massey
