Hi Everyone!

My name is Todd Mackey, I work for New Harvest Coffee Roasters and I am running for Northeast Chapter Rep. The main elections yielded a tie between myself and Mr. Park Brannen of Cafe Grumpy. Because of this, there is now a week long runoff election going on over at the BGA blog! My charge to all BGA'ers in the Northeast: Head over and vote! Here is a link that takes you straight to the action - http://baristaguildofamerica.blogspot.com/2011/04/bga-chapter-repre...


On this page, you will see some reasons both Park and I have outlined as to why we would like to serve as your Rep. If you feel so compelled, take time with our presentations of self and make a careful decision as to who you would like to have representing you this term. If you don't, shoot from the hip and put a vote in anyway!


I would absolutely love to serve the BGA and its Northeast Chapter this term as Representative. My aim would be to bring as much energy as I can to the table and advocate for more professional opportunities via the BGA and SCAA for the Northeast Region.


Thank you for taking the time out to read this!

Hey, Todd!! I don't know if you remember me, but you trained me when I started out as a barista for Seven Stars. Now I'm BGA certified and working at one of the best specialty coffee shops in Los Angeles! If that's not a good mark in your favor, I don't know what is.


Good luck, I think you'll do really well. :)


Catch you at some BGA event or another, I'm sure!

Hey Gang,


As another member of the barista public out here in Providence, I can definitely attest to Todd's enthusiasm and commitment to the advancement of the bean and its practitioners. Any of you go to the Mid-Atlantic Northeast Artisan Coffee Conference last year, or maybe planning to go this year? Todd is a part of the machine that makes that happen. Dude wears more hats at New Harvest Coffee Roasters than anyone I have ever met - trainer, sales rep, taking tech calls, running espresso catering - and he still finds time to help organize events for the Providence Coffee Society. He was also one of the first people in New England to become a certified BGA barista, so you know he is invested in the BGA.


So that's who I'd vote for.
