Voting for statewide officers resulted in a run-off for the vice president seat and a new president, Chris Mabe. Voters tapped Kathy Stewart for another term as OCSEA Secy.-Treas. and Kelvin Jones for Vice President.
Eddie Parks asked delegates to throw their support behind Mabe so they could forge a united front. Mabe, in turn, vowed they would fight together and asked Parks to stay on as interim Exec. Director through the referendum process, to which the delegates voted YES.
