And the winner is…

16 Jul

Changing the Board have pulled off a truly extraordinary set of election results. Our goal was modest: one person in each of the Divisions. After the votes were counted, our group can count ten new Deputies who will be taking up their places across all four of the Divisions this autumn.

We’d like to wish mazal tov to all of the following people, as well as extending our congratulations to all the other successful candidates and our commiserations to those who didn’t make it this time.

But there’s more. For us, this wasn’t merely about ‘winning’. Our goal is to create change, and to this end, some of our unsuccessful candidates will be co-opted onto the Divisions to bring their skills and expertise to the table.

Mazal tov to all of our candidates:
