ARLB018 Utah Section Manager Re-Elected, Two New SMs Coming Aboard
in July

One incumbent Section Manger overcame a challenge to win his bid for
a new term of office, while two SM candidates who ran unopposed will
assume office this summer. All new 2-year terms of office begin on
July 1.

Ballots in the two-person race in the ARRL Utah Section were counted
on May 19 at ARRL Headquarters. Incumbent Section Manager Mel
Parkes, NM7P, received 342 votes, while Pat Malan, N7PAT, of South
Jordan, garnered 280 votes. Parkes, of Layton, has served as the
Utah Section Manager since 1999.

The Maryland/DC Section will have a new Section Manager starting in
July. Marty Pittinger, KB3MXM, of Owings Mills, was the only nominee
for the post, now held by Jim Cross, WI3N, who decided not to run
for another term. Cross has been the Maryland/DC Section Manager
since January 2006. Pittinger is currently the Affiliated Club
Coordinator in Maryland/DC. He also serves as a Public Information
Officer, Official Relay Station, and Net Manager.

A new Section Manager also will be taking the reins in the West
Texas Section. Ron Harden Jr, KB5HGM, of Baird, was the sole
candidate for the position. He has been serving as Affiliated Club
Coordinator and as an Emergency Coordinator in West Texas. Incumbent
Bill Roberts, W5NPR, decided not to run for another term. He has
been Section Manager since 2011.

Five sitting Section Managers faced no opposition in the spring
election cycle and will begin new 2-year terms on July 1. They are
Peter Stohrer, K1PJS (New Hampshire); Richard Krohn, N2SMV (Northern
New Jersey); John Bigley, N7UR (Nevada); Bob Beaudet, W1YRC (Rhode
Island); Dan Pruitt, AE6SX (San Joaquin Valley).
