I am a Green+ member and I am led to believe that members only will be entitled to vote.
So, I am still very concerned that the PASB will become a clique and represent members only and not the entire fan base.
This is also where confusion will reign - there will be a lot of supporters, that are not internet savvy, who will become confused between the PASB and the Fans Trust.
How will the PASB communicate with the whole fan base or will they just communicate with the members? Will they set up their own website or will they become a not so independent organisation, using the mouthpiece of PAFC?
I have lots of doubts - the Herald pasty election, which was also a farce, seems to be have been better organised.
You pose some serious questions. I will try to answer honestly, but you need to ask the club for contact details of others and also get their response. i suspect you may be a long time waiting:)
1. Personally, I wouldnt want to be a member of any clique that would have me:) I have said elesewhere I think the PASB should call regular open meetings where all members are expected to attend and face the fans. I think every PASB member should provide contact details which are op[enly displayed, weebsite, programme, public notices.
2. I think it is up to the PASB to ensure they have a seperate identity although there is a strong chance some people will be on both the PASB and thte Trust Board.
3. In part see 1 above, the operative word was "Open". As for the website, the first PASB will need to make that decision, although Id say its likely they will have an internet presence. But this must be matched by conventional means, like programme entry, flyers at the turnstyle, and engage with tthe local media.
4. You are not alone in having doubts, no shame there!
