Voting for the Canal and River Trust Council starts tomorrow, 8th February. Liveaboard boater Frank Kelly, who helped to prevent BW from introducing its draconian and unlawful mooring strategy for the River Lea, is standing for election to one of the four private boater places on the Council. Frank says if he is elected he will undertake to be “an effective voice for the civil liberties, human rights and security of residential boat dwellers nationally and will seek to address problems of prejudice, discrimination and harassment faced by our community”.
Don’t vote for any candidates as 2nd, 3rd etc choices that you don’t fully support – if you do, candidates that you don’t like will get more votes. You can vote for as few or as many candidates as you like.
Make sure you check your post as the voting forms will be sent out to the address that you use for your boat licence. Every boat licence holder gets one vote. The election ends on 9th March.
