ARLB029 Southeastern Division Election Results

The ARRL Southeastern Division will have a new director on January 1. Ballots were counted today, and challenger Doug Rehman, K4AC, of Mt Dora, Florida, narrowly defeated incumbent Southeastern Division Director Greg Sarratt, W4OZK, of Huntsville, Alabama, 961 to 949 votes. Rehman was among challengers who ran against Sarratt in 2010. Sarratt has served as a Director since 2007.

There was no change in the Vice Director position. Incumbent Jim Millsap, WB4NWS, handily outpolled challenger George Hawrysko, K4AWA, 1429 to 467 votes. Millsap, of Acworth, Georgia, was appointed in 2012 to complete the term of Andrea Hartlage, KG4IUM, who resigned when she moved out of the Southeastern Division.

ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, informed the candidates of the election results by telephone. ARRL International Affairs Vice President Jay Bellows, K0QB, observed the balloting and reported the results.

I could write you an email, thanking you for your service to amateur radio, but it wouldn't be seen by more than your eyes.

To begin, thank you for your six-plus years standing up for us in the Southeast. And also, for your work during Hurricane Katrina. For those who don't know or remember, Greg coordinated incoming amateur manpower and equipment destined for deployment to South Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. Greg took days off from his normal day job to do that on behalf of those affected and in need. I think you were the Alabama Section Manager at the time, since that was 2005. Time flies, so hard to keep dates and times correct.

I'm sure that there was controversy in adminstration of the League during your tenure. There had to be. And, many things we didn't hear about publicly in that regard. There were and are special interests and perhaps some not in keeping with what is best for amateur radio over what is best for the League. During your tenure, I was confident that your representation afforded us an objective and fair position in all matters brought before the Board of Directors.

Greg, thanks for your service to the hobby. I'm sure I'll run into you at a future Huntsville 'fest, so take care and enjoy your repast.
