I want to thank President HOWARD, our elected officers and national board members for their confidence in me. It’s an honor to represent SAG-AFTRA members and I look forward to continuing the great work we have accomplished to date.”

DAVID is equally committed to wisely shepherding our operations and to ensuring good wages and safe working conditions for our members. We are lucky to have him and know we will continue to benefit from his leadership.”
