ARLB069 Section Manager Election Results Announced

ARRL West Central Florida Section Manager Dave Armbrust, AE4MR,
narrowly won re-election as ballots were counted in three contested
races. Armbrust--the first and only person to serve as WCF SM--edged
out Gerald Dee Turner, N2MNC, by just two votes--490 to 488.

Elsewhere, results were not nearly as close. In South Carolina,
incumbent SM Patricia Hensley, N4ROS, lost out to James Boehner,
N2ZZ, of Aiken, in her bid for a new term. Boehner, an ARRL Life
Member and a physician, outpolled Hensley 431 to 239.

re-election 485 to 410 over David Leiser, K3NPX.

ARRL Field and Educational Services staff members counted and
verified all ballots November 19 at ARRL Headquarters.

opposition and have been declared elected for new two-year terms.

K0KY, Missouri; Bill McCollum, KE0XQ, Nebraska; George Tranos, N2GA,
New York City-Long Island; Thomas Dick, KF2GC, Northern New York;
and Jean Priestley, KA2YKN, Southern New Jersey.

Kansas also will get a new SM on January 1. Orlan Cook, W0OYH, has
announced his retirement from the Kansas Section Manager's position
as of the end of this year after serving for five years.
