Officers' endorsements in the UUA presidential race.
On the UUA's Election-L email list, dedicated to discussing the 2009 denominational elections, a number of people have expressed concerns about Moderator Gini Courter's endorsement of Laurel Hallman as president. Unnoted, however, is Financial Advisor Dan Brody's endorsement of her opponent, Peter Morales. Courter and Brody are running unopposed for second terms.
Meanwhile, Hallman counts four current UUA trustees among her supporters — Charlie Burke (youth trustee-at-large); Burton Carley (Southwestern Conference); Roger Comstock (Northern New England); and David Friedman (St Lawrence) — along with youth observer Nick Allen, who is running unopposed for the youth trustee-at-large position.
Three current trustees have endorsed Morales: Lyda Adair (Mountain Desert); Jose Ballester (trustee-at-large); and Anna Olsen (Thomas Jefferson).
Disclosure: As a UUA employee, I will not be expressing any personal opinions about the race or about individual candidates on this site or elsewhere, nor will this site accept paid advertisements related to the elections. You, however, are very welcome to discuss the race.
