Eric Hughes for President!

Confused you, didn’t I?

I’m talking about President of the Writers Guild of America, west, not President of the United States — an important distinction, I admit, but still a serious election for those of us who write motion pictures and television for a living.

That election is now in full swing. I am joining Dale Launer, Larry Gelbart and a host of others giving my endorsement to Eric Hughes. One group has run our Guild for literally decades. And not so well in recent years. We’ve had a number of embarrassments, resulting in government labor investigations (you can read about them on Eric’s site, linked above). Enough of that. This is the WGA, not the Teamsters. It’s time for a change. Send in your ballots. I’ve already voted for Eric.
