Once again, no new blood on the Linnets board.
The only way they will leave is in a coffin.

When only 78 people bother voting and only 1 new candidate applies for a role, it either shows how much real interest there is in the Trust or it shows how people regard the current clique. That on the back of nobody new applying for a board role last year and the majority of the current board never being voted in until a year later (now).
How many Trust members are there in Total?

The question that should be asked is - "Do we need a Trust"?
Given that we are in a situation where only the current board and Darren Law want to get involved, then surely the election process should be removed and those wanting to help should be installed as a committee rather than a Trust Board. The current set up obviously puts people off applying, knowing that they will have a CV passed round Trust members and then a public vote undertaken on them. Some people dont want that public failure.
What benefit does a Trust board have over a committee run club which other clubs have? The majority of board roles dont need to be undertaken by a board member. Its not a board role at other clubs to cut the grass or hang the kit up on a matchday, its either a paid role or a volunteer role. Surely what is best for the club is having commited people who want to get involved, all pulling together to get things done. The low number of actual Trust members that accounts for less than a third of the average home attendance, shows how little interest the fans actually have in The Trust.

You are right, tasks such as cutting grass etc shouldnt warrant a board role, the facts are though that if board members didnt do it then it just wouldnt get done!
The current board can hardly be blamed for no one wanting to stand for election, short of forcing people to stand what can they do? Maybe so few are willing to stand for election because they are happy with the way the club is being run? People on here moaning about a lack of "new blood" may like to consider putting themselves forward? Also a look at the comings and goings of board members since the clubs formation would probably make intresting reading. I would hazzard a guess that on average there has been 2 new board members per year.

it seems a block vote of approx 70 for each sitting board members and 12 for darren law, so the darby and joan clique hang on, no new blood, no youth, no real hope for the long term future

A few people on here have mentioned the " low number of trust members ", do any of you actually know how many there?

And no non-trust members should be privvy to the voting breakdown.
