We are still hoping and praying for a win in the courts! The Miss America family should look to Jennifer Barth, Valerie Clemens, Laura Fleiss, and Kate Shindle for guidance and leadership immediately following a negative lawsuit outcome, thus to prevent a power vacuum where many individuals with mixed intentions might come forward to try and lead. In the event that these ladies do not want said responsibility, we ask them to guide the Miss America family toward identifying new leadership for the new Board. We ask them to ensure a co-chair structure for Board leadership. We will now refrain from recommending any additional Board Members, as the Miss America family has vastly different opinions as to who would be a strong national Board member. For current state organizations that remain publicly silent between now and March 1, , we will assume that you will stay with Miss America 2.
