Board elections 2013


Formal statement – for full circulation

Seven nominations were received for the seven vacancies on the Board. The election is therefore not contested, and these seven people are returned unopposed: (in random order)

John Gaskin
Lee Townley
Paul Charnock
Billy Byrne
Dave Marchbank
John Fitzpatrick
Pete Towey

There will not be a formal ‘hustings’ at the AGM. These names will be put to the meeting en bloc for approval. There will be an opportunity for the candidates to speak, but they will not be required to.

A contested election was expected, but I respect the careful decisions of those who have decided not to stand, and I know that some of them will be working with us in less formal roles.

While a contested election might have given us more credibility (and some excitement), I am delighted that we have seven new Board members with a good range of interests and experience, who all share a passionate commitment to our football club. I am also delighted that, for the first time, the Co-op will have its full maximum of nine elected Directors. This also allows us to co-opt further directors to the maximum of 15.

Exiting times ahead! Animo et Fide,

Mary

  • I know 5 of the ‘Magnificent Seven’. If you looked for 7 passionate and able County fans then that list is what many would choose. Good luck guys. I have a feeling the coming 12 months will be the most important in County’s history.
