Two new members of the Florida Bar Board of Governors have been elected while a run-off will be held for a third, Miami seat. Contested elections were held for the three open Board of Governors’ seats, one each in the 9th, 11th and 17th circuits. The Florida Bar’s 52-member board consists of the president and president-elect, the president and president-elect of the Young Lawyers Division, representatives elected by members of the Bar from each of the state’s 20 judicial circuits, four out-of-state representatives elected by Florida Bar members who live outside of Florida, and two public members appointed by the Florida Supreme Court. The Board sets policy for the Bar. After a three-way race, John H. “Jack” Hickey and Jorge A. Mestre will face each other in an election for Seat 1 in the 11th Circuit. In the 9th Circuit, Seat 3, Scott Ramsey McMillen won election over William C. Hancock II. In the 17th Circuit, Seat 4, Jay Cohen beat Keith T. Grumer. The two-year terms for new elected members begin in June. For the run-off election, ballots will be mailed by The Florida Bar’s election service provider, New York-based Election Services Corp., to Bar members living in the 11th Circuit by April 1. Voters will have the option of voting online in lieu of returning paper ballots. Results should be certified by Wednesday, April 23. In December 2007, Fort Lauderdale attorney Jesse H. Diner won election as president-elect designate of The Florida Bar after being elected without opposition. He will be sworn in as president-elect in June, when current President-elect John G. “Jay” White of West Palm Beach becomes president for the 2008-09 Bar year. Diner will be sworn in as president of the Bar in June 2009.
