ARLB026 Two ARRL directors to step aside; balloting set in three
divisions

Two members of the ARRL Board of Directors are not seeking new terms
this fall, and there will be an election to fill one of the
vacancies. Southwestern Division Director Art Goddard, W6XD, who's
held the seat since 2002, announced earlier this year that he would
not run for the 2005-2007 term. Rocky Mountain Division Director
Walt Stinson, W0CP, also has decided not to seek another term after
serving since 1998.

"We will miss Art and Walt, who have contributed enormously to the
League's success during their tenures," said ARRL CEO David Sumner,
K1ZZ, who is secretary of the Board of Directors.

Seeking to succeed Goddard is Southwestern Division Vice Director
Tuck Miller, NZ6T, of National City, California, who will face off
against Richard J. "Dick" Norton, N6AA, of Topanga, California.

Rocky Mountain Division Vice Director Warren G. "Rev" Morton, WS7W,
of Casper, Wyoming, is unopposed to replace Stinson in the top job,
while Brian Mileshosky, N5ZGT, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is
unchallenged in his bid to succeed Morton.

Edward J. Stearns, AA7A, of Scottsdale, Arizona is unopposed for the
Southwestern Division Vice Director's seat that Miller is vacating
to run for Director.

In the Southeastern Division, while 25-year veteran Director Frank
Butler, W4RH, faces no opposition for a new term and has been
declared re-elected, there is a contest for the division's second
slot. Incumbent Vice Director Nelson E. "Sandy" Donahue, W4RU, of
Atlanta, Georgia, faces a challenge from Southern Florida Section
Manager Sharon T. "Sherri" Brower, W4STB, of Vero Beach.

In the West Gulf Division, Director Coy C. Day, N5OK, of Union City,
Oklahoma, has no opposition for a new term. Vice Director Dr David
Woolweaver, K5RAV, of Harlingen, Texas, faces a challenge from Doug
Loughmiller, W5BL (ex-KO5I and W5DAL), of McKinney, Texas.

In the Pacific Division incumbent Director Bob Vallio, W6RGG, is
unopposed in his bid for a new term in his own right. The Castro
Valley, California, retiree took over the director's chair in
February 2003 following the unexpected and untimely death of Jim
Maxwell, W6CF. Vice Director Andy Oppel, N6AJO, of Alameda,
California, also is running unopposed. He was appointed in 2003 to
replace Vallio.

Ballots in contested seats will be mailed by October 1 to all full
ARRL members in good standing in the three affected divisions as of
September 10. The votes will be tallied November 19 at ARRL
Headquarters, and the results will be announced that day. Three-year
terms for successful candidates begin January 1, 2005.
