Gilbert Standing For Sag Presidency Again

SCREEN ACTORS GUILD (SAG) president MELISSA GILBERT is fighting for a second term in the prestigious office - and will try and finally unify the organisation with its rival.

SAG's nomination committee yesterday (03JUL03) put forward Gilbert, along with LA CONFIDENTIAL actor JAMES CROMWELL for the new position of secretary-treasurer.

Gilbert, who became president last year (02) and 2001's original contest with VALERIE HARPER has to be re-run because of questions over the validity of the ballot, will try and resurrect her plans for a consolidation with the AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TELEVISION AND RADIO ARTISTS, which was narrowly defeated this week (ends04JUL03), if re-elected.

No other candidates for the presidency have yet stepped forward.
