Welcome to the 2010 Board
(UPDATED: See below.)
The results of Capitolbeat’s 2010 elections are in. No negative ads were run, no outside money was involved, and no one’s demanding a recount (at least so far).
Thanks to all of you who voted, either in Phoenix or online.

Vice President: Mark Binker, Greensboro News-Record (NC)
Treasurer: Alan Johnson, Columbus Dispatch (OH)

* Note: Ryan Rusak, our immediate past Secretary, ran for a board term this time because of some health issues, but said he’d serve as Secretary if no one else ran. Despite his best efforts, he was elected Secretary again on write-in votes.
We’ll let you know which position he decides to accept. He has agreed to be Secretary again, which is really good news.
NB: Former Capitolbeat President Aaron Sheinin was also elected to a board term, but has had to decline the seat due to conflicting responsibilities.
