Ben Hayes joins board
After originally stating that they would not announce the winner of the Supporters Director's Election until the end of the month, the club suddenly announced the winner on the official website today.
The fact that only 1,697 eligible fans voted shows me that this will be the last time the football club offer a position on the board to a fan, unless winner Ben Hayes
molds the role into a credible one.
As expected the number of candidates and their similarities meant that in political parlance the voting provided a hung parliament.What was the score?
just wanted to send their commiserations to Vince
, just 8 votes short of winning, which is a fantastic achievement when you consider he has no CASC connections.
This was the final vote, which does not include an unbelievable 423 spoilt papers!
Ben Hayes - 464 (21.9%)
Vince Nieswiecz - 456 (21.5%)
Sue Townsend - 405 (19.1%)
Brian Cole - 372 (17.5%)
. No pressure but I think you have it all to do to in giving this role some credibility amongst your fellow board members and fellow fans. Good luck.
