Why to vote RON for Ext Comms

Unfortunately the Green Party's postal ballot of all members for the
position of External Communications Co-ordinator was cancelled.
The decision was taken to hold a new Ext-Comms ballot at conference in
Hove, where I am writing from. This
disenfranchises the vast majority of party members who cannot or chose
not to attend
conference because of the time, distance, cost or work/family
commitments.
By voting to re-open nominations a new postal ballot to ALL members will
be forced.
Given the key role External Communications plays, the critical year
ahead and the
democratic values of the Green Party, I believe that the right thing to
do is to ask for
all membersʼ involvement.
Voting will be at conference starting on Saturday 5th September. Only
registered conference
attendees can vote. So: I am asking you, if you are going to be here at
Conference,
to ʻbe bigʼ, and do the right thing: Please speak for the majority not
present by reopening
nominations for the External Communications Co-ordinator post on the
Green
Party Executive.

Vote RON for Ext-Comms!
