I fear the PASB election is in danger of failing through lack of interest. The whole process has become far too protracted through wanting to do it "properly" and I reckon something quick & easy at the time the PASB was first suggested by JB would have produced just as good a result.
Then the PASB would have been up & running before now and able to get involved in the important stuff rather than still being on the sidelines.
It's good that 4 people have put their heads above the parapet but I do wonder about the other 6.
OK they may not be PASOTI regulars but most people use the internet and if they're keen enough to stand for the PASB then they should at least be aware of this website?
I'm certainly more inclined to vote for the candidates who have told us a little about where they stand rather than those I know nothing about.
Whilst agreeing with much of what you say, we are where we are.
One of the reasons we may not have heard from all the candidates is that I heard on Saturday that one person put their name forward thinking it was for the Supporters group section rather than the individual ballot.
As I say, we are where we are and I think Jon, Miles and myself despite any differences will be united in trying to win people over to what the PASB can do and trying to get enough support so we can be part of it.
