SAG unwraps noms for new term

The Screen Actors Guild’s national nominating committee on Monday named candidates for SAG offices, including incumbent prexy Barry Gordon, after a day of meetings and interviews Sunday.

The committee nominated Gordon for president, F.J. O’Neil for treasurer and Kathy Connell for recording secretary.

Other nominations included incumbent Joseph Ruskin for first veep, incumbent Richard Masur for third VP, board member Toey Caldwell for ninth veepee and board member Robert Carlson for 11th VP.

Board of director nominations included: Barbara Allyne Bennett, Bibi Besch, Caldwell, John Cann, Carlson, Raymond Forchion, Richard Herd, Jackie Joseph, Jon Joyce, Warren Kemmerling, Edie Lehmann, Russell McConnell, O’Neil, John Randolph , Yale Summers and Angel Tompkins.

SAG spokesman Mark Locher said 12 regional veep spots and one-third of the 100 national board spots are open. He said he expects a significant amount of campaigning and politicking before the Nov. 4 vote.

Locher said that while the nominating committee’s endorsement helps a candidate, it’s not a sure sign of victory.

“We’ve had elections where the entire slate was elected and we’ve had them where virtually no one from the slate was elected,” Locher said.

He said SAG expects that “a number of people will file petitions to be on the ballot” before the Sept. 13 deadline. He said any SAG member of two years standing is eligible for office.

Ballots will be mailed to all eligible members on Oct. 15, with results announced Nov. 5.
