Southeastern Division Election Results
The ARRL Southeastern Division will have a new director on January 1. Ballots were counted today, and challenger Doug Rehman, K4AC, of Mt Dora, Florida, narrowly defeated incumbent Southeastern Division Director Greg Sarratt, W4OZK, of Huntsville, Alabama, 961 to 949 votes. Rehman was among challengers who ran against Sarratt in 2010. Sarratt has served as a Director since 2007.
There was no change in the Vice Director position. Incumbent Jim Millsap, WB4NWS, handily outpolled challenger George Hawrysko, K4AWA, 1429 to 467 votes. Millsap, of Acworth, Georgia, was appointed in 2012 to complete the term of Andrea Hartlage, KG4IUM, who resigned when she moved out of the Southeastern Division.
ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, informed the candidates of the election results by telephone. ARRL International Affairs Vice President Jay Bellows, K0QB, observed the balloting and reported the results.
