Following is a resignation letter from your local president-elect, Dan Hewitt Owens. Pursuant to the Nevada Local Constitution, the Nevada Local Board, at its meeting held on Oct. 23, appointed Kim Renee to fill the vacancy created by his resignation. Renee will serve in the position of Nevada Local president until the next regular election.
To the Members of the SAG-AFTRA Nevada Local,
As your local president, I attended the SAG-AFTRA national convention. I went with two goals. One was having certain agendas I believed were beneficial to the locals, including the Nevada Local. Not knowing how they would be received, I am pleased to report I was able to discuss them all with the other local presidents and union executives. The response was everything I hoped for, and I have been assured these issues have been given serious consideration. Two, I came to the convention with the belief that when we lost our Nevada executive, we were not getting the representation we deserved. Speaking with union executives, I learned the union has assigned representatives in various departments to assist us, and they have been actively working on our behalf.
At the convention, it became clear to me the duties and time needed to do a proper job as your president. I find that my schedule and responsibilities outside of presidential duties will prohibit me from spending the time necessary to do the work needed. Upon learning this, I realize it is not in the best interest of the Nevada Local for me to continue as your local president. I thank all of you who voted for me and trust you will receive this news as a positive step for our local. I love this union and am proud to be called an actor.
Thank you and best wishes,
Dan Hewitt Owens
