Earlier this week the executive board of IBEW Local 1928 received notice that Business Manager Leo Doran intended to step down from the position of Business Manager. This afternoon, the Local executive board met to appoint an interim Business Manager until the Local's election in June of this year. At that meeting, Local President Jimmy Sponagle was the successful candidate of the nominees from the floor. Brother Ernel Henwood accepted the nomination for President, vacating the Vice President position. Brother Leo Doran accepted the nomination for Vice President. We appreciate Brother Sponagle and Brother Henwood stepping up to assume added duties with the Local, which will allow Brother Doran to turn his mind to important personal matters. The staff in the Local's office will do its best to make the transition a seamless one.
