Shawn O’Donnell, K3HI, Framingham, has resigned as the State Government Liaison for Massachusetts.
“My current schedule does not allow me to contribute as SGL as much as I had been able to in the past. It is time for me to resign as SGL,” writes K3HI. “It’s been a good ride. A couple of quashed bills here and there, a couple of proclamations now and then, assisting Tom Carrigan, NE1R to get PRB-1 into Massachusetts law, and then helping a number of hams with the legal citation for their zoning boards,” he adds.
Eastern MA ARRL Section Manager Phil Temples, K9HI praised O’Donnell’s efforts in his SGL role over the past several decades. “It’s been a tremendous experience to work with someone as dedicated as Shawn. He’s performed a superb job of keeping his finger on the pulse of Beacon Hill, and warning the amateur community of potential legislation that might have an adverse impact on our hobby service.”
“It’s time for some new blood and excitement in the role,” added O’Donnell. “I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with all of you. Please pass along my 73.”
