The results in the D.C. Bar's elections came in last week, and Ronald Flagg, a partner at Sidley Austin, has been elected president-elect for the 2009-10 term.
Flagg will step into that role on June 25 and serve for one year before becoming president. After serving as president, Flagg will continue to serve on the bar's board of governors for a third year as immediate past president. Also on June 25, Kim Keenan of The Keenan Firm, will replace Robert Spagnoletti, a partner at Schertler & Onorato, as president.
As in past years, voter turnout in the elections was low. Of the 68,183 ballots sent out by the bar, only 8,283 were cast -- a return rate of 12.1 percent.
In the race for president-elect, Flagg received 4114 votes, beating his opponent Alfred Belcuore, a name partner at Montedonico, Belcuore & Tazzara, by 720.
Flagg, a Harvard Law School graduate, focuses his practice on complex commercial and administrative litigation for professional firms and regulated industries. He did not immediately return calls for comment.
