I support John Robert Stratton, N5AUS, for re-election as Director of the ARRL West Gulf Division. No other candidate has done more to support our hobby and worked harder to guide the management of the ARRL.
I first met John at the Green Country Hamfest in Claremore, Okla. He was the new Vice Director for the ARRL West Gulf after Dr. David Woolweaver, K5RAV, stepped up for become Director.
From our first conversation I have found John to be a strong advocate for amateur radio. In addition to being a Division Director, John is a vital part of the ARRL’s Executive Committee. He is also a strong voice for the ARRL members with in the West Gulf Division and the Radio Amateur community at large.
John is a practicing attorney in Austin, Tex. I know that John has a love of technology that stems from love of amateur radio and his bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas.
John is a respected and well-liked and respected professional, which is only one of the many reasons why the Radio Club of America (RCA) recently appointed him to Vice President and Co-Counsel. And why I will be casting my vote for West Gulf Division Director for John Robert Stratton, N5AUS.
