Diocese of Southern Ohio announces nominees

I received this via e-mail this morning.

During the 129th Diocesan Convention, Bishop Herbert Thompson Jr. called for the election of the Ninth Bishop of Southern Ohio. Because of the Covenant Statement released by the House of Bishops in mid-March, 2005, the Diocese of Southern Ohio re-scheduled its electing convention to Nov. 11, 2006. Consecration is slated for April 2007. Click here to read more about the Covenant Statement. Bishop Thompson retired at the end of 2005. Bishop Kenneth L. Price is the ecclesiastical authority for the diocese.
I haven't yet had the chance to read about these nominees for Presiding Bishop in my diocese, but here are the links for anyone who is interested in learning more.
