At the November 14 General Membership meeting, the following individuals were nominated as Local Executive Board officers for the 2014-2016 term:
President: Phil Kearney, Seattle Times Advertising
Treasurer: Steve Miletich, Seattle Times News
Secretary: Rob Davila, Seattle Times News
Because no office received multiple nominations, election was determined to be by acclamation. This determination is provisional, as Local bylaws provide for additional nominations by petition up to five business days subsequent to the November nominating meeting.
To be valid, nominating petitions must be signed by at least twenty-five members in good standing of the Pacific Northwest Newspaper Guild and delivered to the Guild office no later than 5 p.m. Friday, November 22, 2013. If a valid petition is received for any office, an election will be scheduled during the month of December. If no valid petitions are received, the provisional election results shall be confirmed and the individuals listed will take office on January 1, 2014 for a term of two years.
No nominations were received for the office of Vice President and the position remains open. Subsequent to the start of the 2014-2016 term, the office may be filled by appointment of the Executive Board, subject to confirmation at the next General Membership meeting.
