Subject: Please send in your ARRL ballot...
Dear Fellow Amateur,
By now you should have received by mail your ballot for the Great Lakes
Division Director election. As you read this, please fill out and send in
your ballot. This is an important election for our ARRL division.
As a university professor, I don¹t have the financial resources to send
election materials by regular mail. But please consider this message no less
personal. I want to do what is best for our division, and do my absolute
best for you.
I have received many endorsements throughout Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky,
and I am most appreciative. Included in these are endorsements from section
and division leaders. Among these are George Wilson, W4OYI, former ARRL
President, and Dick Mondro, W8FQT, former Michigan Section Manager and
current division Vice Director. Also, all three Great Lakes Division Section
Managers have enthusiastically endorsed and actively supported my candidacy:
Debbie Kirkbride, KA8YKK from Michigan; Joe Phillips, K8QOE, from Ohio; and
John Meyers, NB4K from Kentucky. George Race, WB8BGY, does not endorse
candidates, but wears one of my campaign buttons.
I will always be grateful for the kindness, support and friendship so many
of you throughout this division have shown to me personally. It means a lot.
I would sincerely appreciate your vote, and urge you to send in your ARRL
ballot today, if you have not done so already.
73, Gary KI4LA
PS Your vote is very important in this election. Please do forward this to
your amateur radio friends. It is the only way I have to get the word out.
Thank you. (More information on my candidacy is available at
[Absolutely no ARRL or ARRL club resources were used in sending out this
message. The email lists are my own, not from the League, and are therefore
imperfect. Please forgive me if you are not in the Great Lakes Division, or
if you receive multiple copies. /Gary/]
