Screnci Leading Vote Getter in 2018 FHBPA Election

Boca Raton attorney Stephen W. Screnci was the clear leading vote getter in the 2018 Florida HBPA Board of Directors election which concluded last week. Screnci is an owner who assumed the Presidency of the FHBPA last year and received votes on 70% of the ballots cast. The next highest vote getter was incumbent Trainer Director Joseph Orseno who collected votes on 54% of the ballots cast.

Others elected to the FHBPA Board for three-year terms were newcomers Terri Pompay (trainer) and Troy Levy (owner). Incumbent Director Adam Lazarus (owner) took the at-large seat on the Board.

Alternate Directors elected to one-year terms were trainer Carlo Vaccarezza and owner Robert J. Edwards, Jr.

Unsuccessful candidates were trainers Barry R. Rose, David C. Kassen and Patrick L. Biancone.

For the second year in a row the FHBPA utilized an independent voting company, Simply Voting, Inc. of Montreal, Canada to solely print, distribute, collect and count the ballots. All ballots, including directions and biographies, were provided in both English and Spanish and members also had the option to vote online directly to Simply Voting, Inc.
