Providence’s Hill elected regional VP
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.”
