Gotham pledges Gotham meet

SAG extends election petition deadlines

SAG’s new national exec director/CEO A. Robert Pisano has reiterated his promise to meet the Guild’s Gotham leaders and staff next week.

Pisano, who took up the post four days ago in Hollywood, said Thursday he also plans to visit as many of SAG’s 23 regional offices as possible soon.

He also said he was uncertain when SAG will be able to open its New York offices in Times Square and added that some employees have been working from home. “I have been very impressed and pleased so far with the Guild staff, both for dealing with this week’s events and for the reception they’ve given me,” Pisano said.

SAG has extended the deadline for election petitions for Hollywood and New York until 5 p.m. today. Board member Amy Aquino, a former 1st VP, has taken out a petition for treasurer. Kent McCord is also a candidate.
