Candidate's Statement for Chess Life by Sam Sloan (110 words)

Our Chess Federation has made considerable progress in the few months since the new administration took over. We now need stability and re-growth. We need to remember how close the USCF came to disaster last year and to be vigilant for the future.

Our mainstay is the books and equipment business. We need to re-develop and improve that business.

We must face reality. Scholastic dues should be raised to $20 and youth dues to $25, while maintaining adult dues at $40.

We must strongly oppose drug testing by FIDE. We need a new FIDE team. Our present team has failed.
