Providence Newspaper Guild president John Hill defeated Carl Younger, the chair of The Newspaper Guild’s Human Rights and Equity Committee, 299 to 234 in an election for TNG Region 1 vice president.
Hill will succeed Donna Marks, who did not seek re-election after she was laid off by the Quincy Patriot Ledger.
In our local (CWA 31034), there were 16 votes for Hill and 8 for Younger.
“I know he will represent us well,” local president Tim O’Brien said. “Both candidates ran a positive campaign, and both serve the union well. I am proud to know both of them.”
