ARLB010 Two New ARRL Section Managers Will Take Office on April 1

Wyoming and Kentucky will be getting new ARRL Section Managers on
April 1, while incumbents in several other sections have been
re-elected for new terms. Ballots in contested elections in the
winter Section Manager election cycle were counted on February 24 at
ARRL Headquarters; some candidates ran unopposed.

In Wyoming, challenger Jack Mitchell, N7MJ, of Cheyenne, will be the
new Section Manager. He received 125 votes to 108 votes for
incumbent Wyoming SM Garth Crowe, WY7GC, of Gillette. Crowe has
served as SM since January 2009.

A ham since 1973, Mitchell is an active ARRL Volunteer Examiner who
enjoys exploring and operating new modes, attending hamfests, making
new friends, contesting casually, and chasing DX. He currently
serves as secretary of ShyWY Amateur Radio Club.

The Kentucky Section also will have a new Section Manager starting
in April. Alan Morgan, KY1O, of Paris was the only nominee for the
position. An ARRL Life Member for more than 30 years, Morgan has
held several leadership posts, including District Emergency
Coordinator, Emergency Coordinator and net manager and has served as
an ARRL-affiliated club president. Outgoing SM Jim Brooks, KY4Z,
decided not to run for another term of office after being at the
helm in Kentucky since 2007.

In contested races two incumbent SMs prevailed over their
challengers. In Arizona, Robert Spencer, KE8DM, of Yuma, outpolled
Steven Wood, W1SR, of Tucson, 775 to 464. In Iowa Section Manager
Bob McCaffrey, K0CY, of Boone also was re-elected, defeating
challenger Scott Kirstein, N0OOD, of Ankey 402 to 127. Spencer and
McCaffrey both have served since 2013 and will be starting their
second terms in April.

Several other incumbent Section Managers faced no opposition in this
election cycle and have been declared re-elected. They are Dale
Temple, W5RXU (Arkansas); Malcolm Keown, W5XX (Mississippi); George
Forsyth, AA7GS (Montana); Chris Brewer, N5GMJ (North Texas), and
Carl Gardenias, WU6D (Orange).
