The union branch's vice president, Michele Mulroney, and secretary-treasurer, Betsy Thomas, were also voted in for another term.

West has re-elected Meredith Stiehm as its president and Michele Mulroney as its vice president in an unusual strike-era officer and board of directors election.

Incumbent Betsy Thomas won the seat for secretary-treasurer, beating out Jeffrey Thompson, in the voting period that ended on Tuesday. Other officer candidates included Rich Talarico, who had been running for president, and Isaac Gómez, who had been running for vice president. Voting took place between August 29 and Sept. 19 amid the ongoing writers’ strike, which began more than four months prior.

Candidates who won seats on the union’s board of directors included incumbents Adam Conover, Nicole Yorkin, Dailyn Rodriguez, Zoe Marshall and Dante W. Harper, as well as new candidates Molly Nussbaum, Scott Alexander and Rob Forman. Three thousand seven hundred eighty-three valid ballots were cast in the election, which was administered by Votenet Solutions. According to the WGA West’s latest financial disclosure report, the union had 25,120 members as of March 31, 2023.

The election, which served as something of a mid-strike referendum on the current WGA leadership, suggested that voting members support the current direction of the union. All the incumbent leaders who ran again in the election, for officer and board of director positions alike, were voted in this round.
