ALA Council Candidates - PUBLIB

I have been active on PUBLIB for many years now. For those who are not familiar with it, it is an electronic discussion list for public librarians. There are over 5,000 subscribers.

In a private email after a recent comment about folks on the list running for ALA Councilor-at-Large, ALA Executive Board member (and good friend) Nann Blaine Hilyard identified the following as current PUBLIB subscribers who are on the ballot for Councilor-at-Large.

They are:
  • Catharine Cook (Chickasha, OK)
  • Nann Blaine Hilyard
  • Michael McGorty
  • Dale McNeill
  • Melora Ranney Norman
  • Marti Goddard (a friend from a prior ALA life!) [added]
  • Sue Kamm (whom I misunderstood was standing for election again -- even if I now remember signing her petition) [added, link added 3/4]
  • James Casey (whom I misunderstood was standing for election again [added]

If I missed someone, let me know. I will do a full list of my personal endorsements after I see the ballot.

[Added 2 more names at 12:15 pm CST]

  1. I'm on PUBLIB, though I don't check it as often as I used to.
