Richardson unveiled her slate Wednesday, which includes stuntwoman Jane Austin as her running mate for secretary-treasurer. Morales and David Jolliffe are seeking the Los Angeles VP slots; notable candidates for the national board include Richardson, former SAG president Ed Asner, Frances Fisher, Jolliffe and Diane Ladd along with Jeff Austin, Michael Bell, David Cowgil, Joe d’Angerio, Debbie Evans, Marc Geschwind, Linda, Harcharic, Samantha Hraston, Charlie Hutchins, Jodi Long, Kurt Lott, Ron Ostrow and Robin Riker.
Richardson has said that Howard’s faction has been too accommodating to employers and not responsive to members. “Our whole team wants to have a member-centric, member-led, transparent and more democratic approach to tackling the issues that have not been solved,” she said.
The Unite for Strength ticket for the national board includes Ellen Crawford (“ER”), “Being Mary Jane” star Lisa Vidal, Mimi Cozzens, Conrad Palmisano (“21 Jump Street”), “Avatar” actor Woody Schultz, Patrick Fabian (“Better Call Saul”), Gabrielle Carteris (“Beverly Hills, 90210″), L. Scott Caldwell (“Lost”), Jon Huertas (“Castle”), broadcaster Hal Eisner, John Carroll Lynch (“American Horror Story”), Elizabeth McLaughlin (“Pretty Little Liars”), Autumn Reeser (“The O.C.”) and Iqbal Theba (“Glee”).
