Dear Tyky,

I regret that this issue of John Messing's voting status for ABA has not
been resolved before this weekend.  I will meet with appropriate staff on
Tuesday to resolve the issue.

In the mean-time, since John has clearly provided his vote via email to
before the deadline, I see no reason why the vote will not count.

Karl or Scott will provide John with an answer to the issue of his status
the ABA voting rep on Tuesday.

Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention.
