Motorcycle Riders Foundation Board of Directors Elections Complete

The MRF has just completed three elections for its Board of Directors. The individuals elected will officially be seated at the upcoming MRF Board of Directors meeting in Lansing, Michigan, on February 8.

Deborah Butitta of Arizona was chosen to continue serving on the MRF Board as SMRO Liaison for another two years. This position is elected by the MRF’s Supporting Motorcyclists’ Rights Organizations as one of two direct representatives on the MRF Board of Directors.

In addition, the two State Representatives to the Board positions have been filled. These positions are elected by the MRF State Representatives to provide two direct representatives on the MRF Board of Directors.

Ken Ray of Oregon was chosen to begin a two-year term as one of the MRF State Representatives to the Board. Ken replaces Mack Backlund of Minnesota, who resigned from the MRF Board at the end of his term. The MRF would like to thank Mack for his hard work and dedication while serving on the MRF Board of Directors.

Tim Nelson of Iowa will fill the other MRF State Representative to the Board position, serving out the remainder of Chris Maurich’s term. Chris was elected Director of State Representatives Program in September 2001. Tim’s current term will be for one year.

The MRF would like to thank all of the candidates who showed their dedication to motorcyclists’ rights by running for these important MRF Board positions. In addition, we would like to congratulate those selected and welcome their continued support of the MRF as members of the Board of Directors.
