Bar Governance: NHBA Board Election Includes Two Contested Races
Balloting ends April 15 for the 2015 NHBA Board of Governors election. Results for two contested races will be reported in an upcoming edition of the e-Bulletin newsletter and on the NH Bar Association website.
Both contested races are for at-large governor positions representing specific constituencies elected by the overall membership. Christopher Marshall of the NH Attorneys General’s Office is running against Jane Taylor, Claremont city solicitor, for a three-year term representing attorneys in the public sector.
Donald Frechette of Locke Lord in Hartford, Conn., is running against Danielle Vanderzanden of Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak and Stewart of Boston for a new board seat representing the nearly one-third of NH Bar Association members whose primary offices are located outside of New Hampshire.
The new board members will take office in June when President-elect Mary Tenn succeeds Lisa Wellman-Ally as NHBA president, with David Ruoff and Scott Harris, both unopposed, taking office as president-elect and vice president, respectively. Rob Howard, currently treasurer, moves to secretary, and Peter Hutchins is unopposed in his bid for treasurer.
Paul Chant and Christopher Regan are running for two governor-at-large seats.
Reelected as county governors are: Richard Guerriero - Cheshire; Sandra Cabrera - Coos; Ora Schwartzberg - Grafton; James Shepard - Merrimack County; and Patrick O’Day - Rockingham. County governors serve two-year terms.
