Shake off this apathy - stand up and be counted

  • Comment

The RIBA ballot papers arrived this morning. The thing that immediately struck me from the election statements was that George Ferguson alone felt it necessary to include a list of his nominees. Some impressive names are included, but will these same people also be voting for him?

There is nothing in the rules to say that a member must vote for the candidate they nominated. I would be willing to nominate any member who is enthusiastic enough to stand.

The main problem is apathy - on past record only 25 per cent will bother to vote.

I want to see change. I nominated David Thorpe but will be voting for Annette Fisher.
