Todd Hissong: RBD SAG Leadership: Art has proved himself an effective advocate for Nevada time and again. He very much deserves your continued support.

Being very Irish, I find myself referring to the recent past of Screen Actors Guild as “The Troubles” - A time of unprecedented turmoil punctuated by screaming matches, intimidation, lawsuits, and, yes, even threats of physical violence. (And that was just the social hour!) 


Make no mistake, the SAG National Boardroom was no place for the faint of heart. Some threw up their hands in exasperation and simply walked away from elected service. 


Others - particularly those from the Regional Branch Division - recognized that SAG’s continued existence as a truly national union was at stake.


One such individual is Art Lynch, who fought those battles on behalf of the members of SAG Nevada. 


While we are now enjoying a well-deserved peace in our Boardroom, the work is far from done and there are surely more battles ahead. 


Art has proved himself an effective advocate for Nevada time and again. He very much deserves your continued support.


In Solidarity,


Todd Hissong
SAG Chicago National Board Director
Vice Chair Regional Branch Division
Screen Actors Guild
