AMA 2020 Elections...
Probably like many of you, I got a letter from the AMA with a ballet for the election of a new AMA President. It appears there are 3 individuals running. They are:
-- Randy Cameron
-- Rich Hanson
-- Eric Williams

I read the Campaign Statements for each candidate. Each is well written and each person seems like they have the background to do the job. Normally I wouldn't spend this much time on this election (read that to mean I have been more apathetic in the past) but these are rapidly changing times for modelers and more than ever we would like to have the right man in the job.

Does anyone know any of these people professionally or personally? Can anyone here on RunRyder add any insight to who these people are? Are any of the candidates running for AMA President here on RR? Barring other information, I will have to rely on the Campaign Statements provided by the candidates themselves.

Any thoughts? Any discussion?

Election Info
I have personaly known Eric Williams for over 20yrs.
Living in the northeast, we often ended up at fun flies and shows together.. He has been an AMA rep for at least most of that time..he has been to DC on our behalf several times in the past couple of years..
He has my vote, and I hope he will get a lot more!!

I'm not doubting your vote; That's up to you, and thanks for voting.

My question: Who is that, and why a write-in? Is it even remotely feasible that he could win? Are you doing this in protest to the given choices?

I'm just curious, I've not yet sent in my ballot. Thanks for any insight you feel like providing.
wjvail Can anyone here on RunRyder add any insight to who these people are?
Good thread, Bill. I have many of the same questions you do, and considered a thread stating the same. Thanks for bringing it up.

That's why I had zero idea....OK. Thanks Bill.

Still...who is this person and why the write-in, why the support and following? Perhaps you FB folks can get him on RR for a campaign statement?

the 3/4 is a estimation. I know quite a few people are voting for him , is it enough to win ? the hangout is actually a great rc heli place. im not big on fb either , but sometime its nice to watch someone smacking their heli on fb live , and tell them to do some crazy **** in the comments , then they start doin it.Brandon

I also voted for Eric Williams. He has shown up at a number of fun flies I have attended and been very engaged and knew the issues facing modelers, including helis. We just had a major setback with the FAA. There is feeling amongst many that AMA HQ should have done more about the government control earlier on.Tom
