Thats a bit naive don’t you think HM?
I would assume the board is a democratic system. We have no idea whom voted for Jame’s removal, if at all. Whom stood up and protested. Or whom stood up and demanded his head.
What I do know is if someone voted to keep him and was outvoted by the majority, there is little more you can do but keep up appearances as a united board. You move onto the next battle of ideas and strategies. The last thing the club and members would have wanted was a fractured and embarrassingly dysfunctional board.
To vote for or against an individual candidate because of a democratic board decision is frankly crazy.
I’ll base my vote on the character of the person, the sincerity of what they stand for, whether they achieve it or not. All I need to know is they tried to achieve it. I also base my vote on where the club was and where they are now. If we are in a better spot than before, then something is working.
