The votes are in for this year’s elections and the new members of the 2014/15 Executive are; Heather Vernon, Louie Woodall, Adebusuyi Adeyemi, Alvin Carpio, Martin Edobor, Ellie Groves, Ben West, Jessica Toale, Paulina Jakubec, Sophie Keenleyside and Sophia Morrell.
The new Executive formally takes over, after a customary vote, on the AGM this coming Saturday.
Congratulations to those elected.
|Sophia Morrell||68||Elected on Chair's casting vote*|
*The twelfth position was tied between Katharina Klebba and Sophia Morrell and the constitution states ‘In the event of a tie the Chair of the Young Fabian Group shall have a casting vote.’ This was far from an ideal solution and our Chair, James Hallwood, made it clear that he thought future years should seek a better constitutional solution. However, bound by the rules and in discussion with the candidates, he and Katharina decided that she would give way to allow Sophia her first experience of the Executive. The graciousness with which Katharina stepped aside was noted by the outgoing and incoming Executive and she has our thanks for three years of work for the Young Fabians.
Commiserations to those who were unsuccessful this time – there will be ample opportunity to get involved over the coming year. Thanks to all who ran.
