ARLB028 Fall ARRL Section Manager Election Results

The only contested seat for Section Manager (SM) in the Fall
election cycle was in Kansas, where incumbent Ron Cowan, KB0DTI, of
La Cygne, came out on top in the two-person race. Cowan outpolled
challenger Lloyd Colston, of Arkansas City, 260 to 225. Ballots were
counted on November 23 at ARRL Headquarters. Cowan has served as
Kansas Section Manager since 2003. His new 2-year term will begin on
January 1, 2022.

In Alabama, Roger Parsons, KK4UDU, of Mulga, will become the new
Section Manager on January 1. Parsons was the only nominee for the
position. He has been an Assistant Section Manager and a District
Emergency Coordinator. Incumbent SM JVann Martin, W4JVM, who has
served as the Alabama Section Manager since 2016, decided not to run
for a new term.

In Michigan, Les Butler, W8MSP, of Gregory, will become the new
Section Manager of Michigan when the new year arrives. He was the
only nominee to submit a petition by the nomination deadline. Butler
will succeed incumbent Michigan Section Manager Jim Kvochick, K8JK,
whose job will take him out of the state early next year. Kvochick
has been Michigan SM since 2018.

In Delaware, the Section Manager position remains open and a
re-solicitation for nominees will be issued this winter for an
18-month term beginning on July 1, 2022. No nominating petitions
were submitted before the deadline in September. Incumbent Section
Manager Mark Stillman, KA3JUJ, is moving out of the Section early
next year and could not run for another term after serving as
Delaware SM since 2020.
