AILA Election Results
Immigration Daily has learned that a record number of votes was cast at the AILA election on Thursday. Increased participation by the bar in community activities bodes well for immigration practitioners. In the contested elections for Executive Committee positions, David Leopold of Ohio won the race with Tammy Fox-Isicoff of Florida for the position of AILA Secretary. As expected, Charles Kuck of Georgia prevailed over Eugene Flynn's challenge. Those winning for the Board of Governors included a mix of nominated candidates and those running by petition - Cristina Perez-Gonzales, Dagmar Butte, Laura Lichter, Eleanor Pelta, Josie Gonzales, Marcine Seid and Douglas Stump.
