More Candidates Enter the ANA Field
April 01, 2009

Two new candidates have thrown their hat in the ring for election to the American Numismatic Association Board of Governors.

Though not all have accepted their nominations yet, the field has swelled to 17 candidates from the 15 that were present or issued statements for the candidate forum in Portland, Ore., March 7. Deadline for accepting or rejecting nomination is April 7.

The additions to the field are Mandeville, La., coin dealer and former Republican candidate for U.S. senator Paul Hollis.

The other is J.P. Martin, a professional coin grader whose career at one time saw him grading coins for ANACS when it was owned and operated by the American Numismatic Association.

The rest of the field includes two candidates for president, current Vice President Patti Finner, and Gov. Clifford Mishler. Both are from Iola, Wis.

Tom Hallenbeck of Colorado Springs, Colo., is the only candidate for vice president.

The other candidates for governor are:

Joseph E. Boling of Indianapolis.
Michael Ellis, Virginia Beach, Va.
Brian E. Fanton, Hiawatha, Iowa
Jeff C. Garrett, Lexington, Ky.
Alan Herbert, Mesa, Ariz.
Chester L. Krause, Iola, Wis.
Walter A. Ostromecki Jr., Encino, Calif.
Thomas A. Palmer Jr., New Smyrna Beach, Fla.
Scott Rottinghaus, New London, Conn.
Jeffrey Swindling, Jacksonville, Fla.
Michael S. Turrini, Vallejo, Calif.
Wendell Wolka, Greenwood, Ind.

The election will be held by mail ballot. They usually go into the mail about June 1 and voting is conducted until the middle of July. A new board will be sworn in Aug. 8 at the Los Angeles World's Fair of Money.

So far the heat of the 2007 campaign is missing, but on the other hand, it is still early in the campaign.
