I think the candidate who isn’t in the clique so to speak will win comfortably….
What price the winning candidate being immediately invited onto the trust board if they’re not already on it …..
FWIW id be happy to vote for anyone who promised not to be part of the trust and therefore impartial.

The person HAS to come from the Trust otherwise this is another attempt to marginalise and discredit them.

It’s also a thankless position if you side with KT your in the clubs pocket, if you side with the Trust etc etc.

Don't think they need any help with that

And how are you going to decide which of the candidates who have no affiliation to the Trust and who promise never to do so, you are going to vote for? Because that alone an easy criteria for all to fulfill.

How does that make anyone impartial, KT's mate Jim Rosenthal could stand, not part of the Trust, so does that make him impartial  Huh?

Maybe not but it’s clearly an attempt to say to the council, look we’ve got the fans on board.

KT is obviously after a puppet to parade in front of the council.

I predict now that this is going to be a VERY long thread  Grin
They have made the form accessible on the official site, so won't be relying on email databases, i.e. no excuses for anyone interested but a tight turnaround.
It'll be really interesting to see the list of names and I'd be a bit surprised if it isn't someone relatively well known or a local business person who gets the vote.
 
The Trust 'should' be launching a proactive campaign to get Andy Roberts the seat but it's probably the first they have heard of it. If not I'm sure we can expect some grand statement poo pooing the idea of standing for it.

That's part of the problem Manny, they aren't the voice of the fans and haven't been for some time. I don't recognise anything they have done recently as been for the fans, it has been for a small number on the Trust board, or that's how it's seems to come across if you look at various FB groups and on here it seems pretty much that opinion overall is against the way they have been acting. It seems to be a fairly small number of posters on here who support them and very few on FB. Now I don't know how many people that comprises in total but it just doesn't seem as if they enjoy a majority of support.

The person only needs to be proposed and seconded by 2 existing season ticket holders to enter the ballot.

Surely this is the chance to get JEEMA elected onto the Board of Directors.

It seems a real possibility if it gets momentum!!!

Yes, but you'll have to cut down the fortnightly demand for the manager to get the boot!  Grin

I think that's been demonstrated not to be the case a lot on here and social media.

This is positive but also has a lot of limitations. It sounds like this person is to be the fans representative (and not a business / construction expert as mentioned) but unless they have a large social media etc presence and really get the thoughts of the fan base it will be one persons view. But a great starting point and good luck to anyone who puts themselves forward.

Really interested to see how it works

I‘m not sure why there is so much emotion about this one - if the trust are sensible they will decide on one candidate and providing  that individual is a moderate and not seen to be overtly demonising  KT (although certainly not a puppet) then there is every chance that individual will get the majority of the votes.

But is that the case ?, we have a few on here who would disagree with the Trust if it said next month was October and pretty much the same amount who agree with most of the Trust's post. Don't forget, a lot of people have been driven off here due to the constant abuse they got, I know loads of Trust associates, who used to post regularly on here who don't post anymore due to the abuse.
