CRT Council Private Boating Representatives voting

Some members of the council are due for renewal in 2020. Importantly to The Boating Association members this includes 4 private boating representative posts. Nominations for these posts has closed and there are 34 hopeful candidates.

The timetable for voting commences on 20th January and closes on 14th February. If you are a boat licence holder YOU are eligible to vote and will receive an email from CRT with a unique pin number and access details to the voting portal. Voting is only on-line and via this portal.

Eligible voters will each have a single transferable vote, this means you place your choices in your order of choice i.e. first choice number 1, second choice number 2 etc.

It is not compulsory to vote for all candidates, what is important is that we all vote for your Chairman, Jon Skinner.

Historically river and river estuary users have been overlooked by CRT, in fact it has been said that CRT think they only have canals.
To ensure we have representation and a voice please do not waste your vote but ensure you vote for Jon.
