ARLB023 May Section Manager Election Results Announced

In the only contested Section Manager race this spring, Mel Parkes,
NM7P, of Layton, was re-elected as the Utah Section Manager with 480
votes. His opponent, Lauri "Mac" McCreary, KG7C, of Lehi, received
147 votes. Parkes, who has held the Section Manager's post since
1999, begins his sixth consecutive two-year term of office on July
1. Election ballots were counted on May 19 at ARRL Headquarters.

In the San Joaquin Valley Section, Dan Pruitt, AE6SX, becomes
Section Manager on July 1 when he takes the reins from Charles
McConnell, W6DPD. Both live in Fresno. Pruitt was the only nominee
for this upcoming new term of office. He has held Public Information
Officer and the Emergency Coordinator appointments since 2005.

McConnell decided not to run for another term of office after having
served two terms as Section Manager. Prior to his term as Section
Manager, he served as ARRL Pacific Division Director for four years,
from 1990-1993; he was also Pacific Division Vice Director in 1989.
In 1976, McConnell became the Section Communications Manager,
serving for 13 years.

The following incumbent ARRL Section Managers did not face
opposition and were declared elected for their next terms of office
beginning on July 1: Bob Beaudet, W1YRC (Rhode Island); Jim Cross,
WI3N (Maryland-DC); John Dyer, AE5B (West Texas); Joe Giraudo, N7JEH
