    Wish I were still a member so I could vote for you. But I’m sure you’ll 1) win and 2) be a great president in the Stephen Abram tradition. Congrats!

  2. Tom Rink Says:

    Judith, thanks for the vote of confidence. I hope that I am up to the task and will do my very best if elected to this position. It is a great slate of candidates (as usual) so it will be a win/win for SLA regardless. I hope that life is treating you well.
