Making A Better Tokyo American Club’s (MABT) collaborative summary of candidates

***UPDATED 6 Nov 2020****

This list is a collaboration of members who know the various candidates. Ten (10) members were given the roster and asked to rank the candidates from whom they saw as most effective.

The list is meant to get change oriented decision makers in positions of leadership. And eliminate candidates looking for a title for their resumes.

Besides if a candidate is ‘MABT recommended’ or not, we have put a priority number (#1 is highest priority or best change candidates). PLEASE NOTE- Candidates must have a majority of votes of total voting members to be elected. That is why it’s important to number every box – you want to make sure that your vote counts.

We hope this helps members in the voting process. Special thanks to all the members who helped building this guide!
