I am running for director of the Hudson Division of the ARRL. I want to be your advocate in Newington. We badly need a change of leadership here, and I've stepped up to hopefully bring positive change to the League. Unfortunately, while Hudson is not as big as some divisions, it will involve some travel, as far as Long Island and Albany, NY.

Some expenses will include lodging, transportation, hamfest table fees, promotional materials (flyers, banners, stickers, etc), website expenses and social media promotion. Some of these will be covered by me but if you would like to help, you can. 

All excess funds at the end of the campaign will be donated to the ARRL Spectrum Defense Fund.

Well, WE DID IT. My new term begins Jan 1, 2019 at noon. I would like to thank everyone who donated and offered other support. I am going to have some updates as well as opportunities to collect memorabilia from this campaign. All proceeds from those will go to an amateur radio (or other) charity of your choice. Follow me on facebook or twitter. All info is at https://hudson.n2rj.com

I would like to thank everyone who has helped. No, I'm not here to ask for more donations. You guys have done enough. I am going to give you guys some updates.

Ballots have been mailed and have been in mailboxes for quite some time now. If you still have yours, please mark and send it in today. Don't let the future of ARRL and ham radio get lost in the trash or below that pile of QSL cards.

There have been concerns about apparent unethical campaigning by my opponent. I cannot say whether or not this is true, but please ignore him, stay the course and get me elected. This is by far the best remedy. If you've returned your ballot, tell your friends. If you are not in the division, tell your friends in the division.

If you are in these divisions, vote for and tell your friends to vote for these candidates:
Hudson - Ria Jairam, N2RJ (Director)
Northwestern - Mike Ritz, W7VO (Director) and Delvin Bunton, NS7U (Vice-Director)
Central - Valerie Hotzfeld, NV9L (Director)
New England - Fred Hopengarten, K1VR (Director)
Roanoake - George W. "Bud" Hippisley, W2RU (Director) and John Humphrey, W4IM (Vice-Director).

Additionally, my opponent sent out an email saying that my postal mailing was "an inappropriate use of thousands of dollars." I vehemently disagree. You donated because you wanted me to win. The ARRL gives you a mailing list so you can mail the division. I owe it to you to ethically do everything I can to win. The mailer is part of that strategy.

Thank you, and we nervously wait less than a month for the result!

Voting is well underway! I would like to thank everyone who helped out so far. It’s not easy and it’s not cheap but you made it happen. Especially the mailing which I did on a shoe string budget with a LOT of manual labor. The rest of funds I spread out for travel to various places. I’m sure many get a sense for how hard I’ve been working
at this, like you would not believe. It IS hard work but I do it for the pure love of ham radio. If you have not returned your ballot, please mark it for Ria Jairam, N2RJ and return it today. Don’t let it get lost under that pile of QSL cards!
