For International Vice-President

Gary Levine

Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al vice pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, Gary Levine, topped the polls on the first bal­lot dur­ing last year’s Las Vegas con­ven­tion. In the sub­se­quent run-off, Gary lost by only 3 votes to Art Riley from the Cap­i­tal Dis­trict. Gary has decid­ed to let his name stand for elec­tion this com­ing June dur­ing our Orlan­do con­ven­tion. We want to encour­age all clubs to endeav­or to send del­e­gates to Orlan­do for the June 27–29 con­ven­tion.

In Strat­ford, we must endorse Gary’s can­di­da­cy to help ensure a suc­cess­ful elec­tion bid.

In the words of our Past Inter­na­tion­al Pres­i­dent, Dr. John But­ton:

I have known Gary for 20 years. He is a mas­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tor and he is the epit­o­me of integri­ty. He is a “straight shoot­er.” With Gary, there are no games. He speaks his mind and what is on his mind is what he believes to be the right thing not the pop­u­lar thing. Gary believes in straight talk. He is not afraid to take an unpop­u­lar posi­tion if he believes it to be the right posi­tion.

Gary does not pre­tend to know every­thing. He asks ques­tions and he lis­tens.

Last year, he was chair of the Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al Mem­ber­ship Com­mit­tee. He has led that com­mit­tee by exam­ple. He believes that talk is cheap while action is not. He has had remark­able suc­cess recruit­ing new mem­bers and open­ing new clubs across the Kiwa­nis world all the while exud­ing a qui­et humil­i­ty.

He is cre­ative and inno­v­a­tive. As well, he has exten­sive expe­ri­ence in munic­i­pal gov­er­nance.

And, he is fun.

Gary has the attrib­ut­es and skill sets that Kiwa­nis needs to face down the chal­lenges that cur­rent­ly con­front us and turn them into oppor­tu­ni­ties. He is a ser­vant leader. Where he leads, I will fol­low.

– John But­ton
