Announcement Date: October 4, 2011
Sarratt, while serving as the Chairman for the Ethics and Elections Committee, made a telephone call to a member in the Delta Division to discuss the election taking place. Sarratt did not get along with the incumbent Delta Division Director Mickey Cox, K5MC.
While it is disputed what was said in that conversation, the fact that Sarratt made a call to a member in a Division where the committee he chaired was overseeing that election is an untenable breach of ethics. Sarratt was allowed to step down from the E&E Committee and the incident was hidden from the membership.
