Actors’ Equity Elects New Union Officers With Kate Shindle as President

Broadway veteran Kate Shindle has been elected the new president of Actors’ Equity Association, the labor union of U.S. stage actors and stage managers.

Shindle (Broadway’s “Legally Blonde,” “Wonderland”) ran against fellow actors Nick Wyman and Larry Cahn in a unionwide election that occurred right on the heels of a high-profile union controversy over the pros and cons of an Equity-led initiative to rethink L.A.’s longstanding 99-seat theater plan. Wyman had been the incumbent in the race for president.

Equity represents some 50,000 theater industry pros, with its U.S. territory divided into Eastern, central and Western regions. Eight new officers were elected in the 2015 elections, and 16 council seats were filled on the union’s national council, the governing and policy-making body of the union.

The complete results of the 2015 election follow:

President: Kate Shindle

First Vice President: Paige Price

Second Vice President: Rebecca Kim Jordan

Third Vice President: Ira Mont

Secretary/Treasurer: Sandra Karas

Easter Region Vice President: Melissa Robinette

Central Region Vice President: Dev Kennedy

Western Regional Vice President: Doug Carfrae

Eastern Region Councillors: Dana Ivey, Maureen Moore, Judy Rice, Kristine Nevins, Tonya Pinkins, Kate O’Phalen, Sid Solomon, Joanne Borts, Ruth E. Kramer, Amber White, Bill Bateman

Central Region Councillors: Ariane Dolan, Malcolm D. Ewen

Western Region Councillors: Mary-Pat Green, Jeff Marlow, Barbara N. Roberts
