Election Committee certifies results
The Guild’s Local Election Committee has certified the results of last month’s election, finding that there were no procedural or substantive grounds for setting the results aside.
In an email announcement sent out Thursday afternoon, the committee stated:
“The LEC hereby on Jan. 9, 2014 issues its Final Determination and Certification of the Results of the 2013 Election. In the absence of any timely, much less meritorious, protests to the election, the LEC has determined that its December 21 tentative certification is true and accurate.”
The following candidates, all part of the Unity Slate, were elected:
Executive Officer: Carl Hall
President: Rebecca Rosen Lum
First Vice President: Gloria La Riva
Treasurer: Michelle Caplette
Secretary: Steve Stallone
In addition, Freelance Unit member Steve Early was elected to a Representative Assembly Delegate position.
Unopposed positions are as follows:
Vice President – Hawaii: Derrick DePledge
Vice President – CA: Richard Knee
Vice President – CFI: Ariel Torrone
Each of these people will serve two-year terms through 2015.
Results showed Hall won with 614 votes out of 1,024 valid ballots cast. Others on the Unity Slate won with similar margins.
The Local Election Committee is also in the process of issuing decisions on a myriad of complaints filed by candidates, rank and file members and staff. We will update this article as those decisions come in.
