ARLB030 New Section Managers Take office July 1 in Four ARRL 

ARRL members in Oregon have made their choice for a new Section
Manager. Marshall D. Johnson Sr, KK7CW, of Albany defeated Lewis N.
Williams, WB7NML, 582 to 417, in the only contested race in the
current SM election cycle. Ballots were counted May 21 at ARRL

Johnson replaces SM William Sawders, K7ZM, who did not seek another
term. He'll be among four new ARRL Section Managers who will take
office July 1. The other three candidates ran unopposed and were
declared elected. Incumbent Section Managers were re-elected in four
other ARRL sections.

In Indiana, James S. Sellers, K9ZBM, of Middlebury, will succeed
Peggy Coulter, W9JUJ, as Section Manager. Coulter has held the
office since 1990. An ARRL Life Member, Sellers has been Indiana's
Section Emergency Coordinator since 1991.

In Vermont, the new SM is Paul N. Gayet, AA1SU, of Colchester. He is
the president of the Radio Amateurs of Northern Vermont, an ARRL
Special Service Club. Gayet succeeds Bob DeVarney, WE1U, who did not
run for another term.

In Illinois, Sharon Harlan, N9SH, of Rockford, takes the reins as
Section Manager from Bruce Boston, KD9UL, who has served as SM since
1994. Harlan was SM from 1990 to 1994.

Incumbent section managers re-elected without opposition were
William Woodhead, N1KAT, Maine; Rudy Hubbard, WA4PUP, Northern
Florida; Glenn Thomas, WB6W, Santa Clara Valley; and Donald
Michalski, W9IXG, Wisconsin.
