SB QST ARL ARLB010
ARLB010 Four New ARRL Section Managers Elected

Four new ARRL Section Managers will take office on July 1. Ballots
were counted May 20 at ARRL HQ for contested races in the spring SM
election cycle.

In Indiana, Joseph Lawrence, K9RFZ, of Fort Wayne, received 652
votes to top incumbent Section Manager Lou Everett Sr, WA5LOU, of
Cumberland, who polled 482 votes. Everett has been SM for the past 2
years.

Lawrence previously served as Indiana's Section Emergency
Coordinator, as Allen County ARES Emergency Coordinator, and
District 3 DEC. He is currently the Allen County RACES Radio Officer
and IDHS Digital Amateur Radio Advisory Council facilitator. An
aerospace and physics professional, he's also taught numerous
Technician license classes.

In Maine, Bill Crowley, K1NIT, received 258 votes, to defeat veteran
incumbent Section Manager Bill Woodhead, N1KAT, who got 156 votes.
Woodhead has served as Maine's SM since 1998.

Crowley, of Farmingdale, is currently Assistant Section Manager and
Public Information Coordinator, and he was a former State Government
Liaison. He's the president of the Augusta Amateur Radio
Association, a past president of the Yankee Amateur Radio Club, and
chair of the WinterFest and Windsor Hamfest.

In Northern Florida, Stephen Szabo, WB4OMM, polled 833 votes to 296
votes cast for Gary Alberstadt, KA3FZO, of Monticello. A retired
Daytona Beach Police captain, Szabo, of Port Orange, is currently
the Northern Florida Section Emergency Coordinator and District
Emergency Coordinator as well as an instructor/mentor and a
DXCC/WAS/VUCC card checker.

Current Northern Florida SM Paul Eakin, KJ4G, decided not to run for
a new term of office after serving since 2008.

In Delaware, Bill Duveneck, KB3KYH, of Milton, received 142 votes to
defeat Jerome Palmer, N3KRX, of Houston, who got 122 votes. Duveneck
has been Delaware's ARRL Emergency Coordinator since 2009, and a
Volunteer Examiner of the ARRL and Laurel VECs. He is a past
president of the Sussex Amateur Radio Association and chaired the
2012-2013 Delmarva Hamfest. He has developed and manages SARA's
weekend ham radio licensing classes.

Outgoing SM Frank Filipkowski, AD3M, of Wilmington, who has served
as SM in Delaware since 2006, did not run for a new term. Because
candidates in Delaware had to be resolicited for this
nomination/election cycle, Duveneck's term of office will be 18
months instead of 24 months.

Five incumbent ARRL Section Managers did not face opposition and
were declared elected for new 2-year terms beginning on July 1: Tom
Ciciora, KA9QPN (Illinois); Everett Curry, W6ABM (Oregon); Brandon
Bianchi, NI6C (Santa Clara Valley); Paul Gayet, AA1SU (Vermont), and
Gary Sorensen, W9ULK (Wisconsin).
