No words really necessary – other than I hope Shane Moore puts his hand up for this position. Shane only narrowly failed to get elected at last November’s election (coming in third just behind Simon Johnson and Tim Connell).
This issue of seeking candidates from the particular membership class was discussed in-depth at the recent Special General Meeting. Shane absolutely qualifies.
He had already announced his intention to stand as a Demand Class candidate, so given that the appointment is only until this year’s AGM (it is filling a “casual vacancy”), he will at least get 3 months experience at the coalface. He can then campaign with confidence for a new term.
I wish Dr Michaella Richards well.
