The District Nominating Committee, chaired by PDG Wayne Wiebe, has selected Scott Dudley as nominee for the position of Rotary District 5050 Governor for the year 2016-2017.

Scott has been a Rotarian for 13 years and is a member of the Rotary Club of North Whidbey Island Sunrise, where he served as Club President in 2002/3 and again in 2006/7.  He has also served in many positions in the District, including Assistant Governor, Membership Chair and the faculty of the Rotary Leadership Institute. He is also a multiple Paul Harris Fellow.

Scott has participated in international service projects in Honduras with Pure Water For The World, in Haiti with Shelterbox and in Mexico for a wheelchair distribution.  He credits the wheelchair delivery in 2007 as the event that made him a passionate Rotarian.

Scott is a financial advisor with Edward Jones and serves as the Mayor of Oak Harbor.

Scott was awarded the prestigious Rotary International Service Above Self Award in 2013 for his many contributions and, in particular, his donation of a kidney to Phil Rosario, husband of Haney Rotary Club's past-president, Keesha Rosario.  A news clip about the story is below.

Scott's nomination has been confirmed as no challenging candidate was proposed by a club within a 14 day period following November 10, as set out in the Rotary International Manual of Procedure Article 13.020.8.

Congratulations to Scott and Christine!
