SAG OKs 16 for ballot

New members to rep SoCal constituency

Sixteen members of the Screen Actors Guild’s Southern California territory have been approved as candidates for this fall’s elections to the union’s national board of directors.

The candidates were certified after appearing before a nominating committee in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Of 100 seats on the national board, 34 are up for election this year in mail balloting scheduled for completion Nov. 4. Most of the seats are for three-year terms, although some are for lesser periods.

The 16 candidates sanctioned would represent the so-called general membership — those members who live in Southern California and in states not covered by SAG’s 25 other branches. Total membership is about 95,000.

The nominees are Daryl Anderson, Rick Barker, Mark Carlton, John P. Connolly, Bob Courts, Cynthia DeCure, Dena Dietrich, Matthew Kimbrough, Lev Mailer, Scott Pierce, Eric Poppick, Armin Shimerman, Chuck Sloan, Yale Summers, Lyman Ward and Karl Warren.

Other candidates may qualify for the ballot by completing nominating petitions, which must include 35 valid signatures. The petitions process is open until Sept. 5.
