Deputy Leader Nomination

Hello once more fellow Pirates

I am again nominating myself for the Deputy Leader position. I already have my seconding and I am lucky enough this time around to have several people who are happy to second me. My official seconder is our former Leader, Cris Chesha.

Since joining the party in May 2014 I have learnt a lot. As a party we burn through people far too quickly and we need to get better at delegation and sharing the load otherwise things grind to a halt. If that happens, getting the party moving again can be tricky to say the least.

There are a lot of positives to draw from, the Board of Governors is full. We have Deputies at the ready for the NEC . Membership for 2015 is at a record high and climbing. Volunteers are coming forward to fulfil support roles.
