Scott elected to SAG national board!

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...d5fa6b05398896

SAG members on Thursday voted for change, electing members of a faction that has promised to unite the union as it faces its toughest challenge in negotiating a new contract with the major studios and production companies.

A total of 18 candidates from the Unite for Strength slate were elected to both the Hollywood and national boards, while 14 MembershipFirst candidates were re-elected or newly elected to the boards.

Among the five new national board UFS members, Amy Brenneman, Kate Walsh, Ken Howard, Pamela Reed and Adam Arkin, as well as independent candidate Morgan Fairchild, who was endorsed by the slate, which ran on a platform of change.

Among the MembershipFirst candidates elected or re-elected to the national board: Lainie Kazan, Joely Fisher, Scott Bakula, Keith Carradine and JoBeth Williams.

Brenneman received the largest number of votes out of the 84 candidates vying for seats on the Hollywood and national boards, according to a source.

According to SAG, a total of 13,793 ballots were tabulated in the Hollywood Division, representing 24.84% of the ballots mailed in that region. Another 5, 458 ballots were counted in the New York division, representing 23.76% of the ballots mailed to members there.

Five New York incumbent board members were also elected, as well as nine alternates. Erik-Anders Nilsson, the lone MembershipFirst candidate running in New York, did not win a seat.

Politics can't be far behind.

I think he's got a tough job ahead, although his area is probably not the one who has to negotiate with the big companies over disputes.

Congrats to him.

Thankfully so ... although, even if he'd venture into politics and get actual ability to affect change, I would hope he'd have enough sense to do something beneficial for everyone.
