Umpires to vote again for new executive

Umpires to vote again for new  executive


Members of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Umpires Association will return to the Bishop’s College, Kingstown, this Thursday, from 5 p.m., with the sole purpose of electing an executive to serve the organization for the next two years.

This, after the process was stalled last Saturday at the same venue, at the association’s Annual General Meeting.

A locked eight-eight vote between incumbent Roger Davis and Goaland Greaves, for the post of president, presented a challenge for the association, since its constitution does not speak on the matter of a tied vote.

It was revealed though, that in past, whenever there was a tie, the chair had the casting vote.

But, chair Andrew Bramble preferred not to be embroiled in such a delicate matter, hence a re-run of the elections was the consensus.

This was a counter-motion, after it was suggested that Davis continue in the position of president.

The rest of the outgoing executive is Dillon Child – vice-president; Colbert Mc Donald – secretary/treasurer; Maria Abbott – assistant secretary treasurer; with Selwyn/Allen as public relations officer and Ivan Williams and Deighton Butler as committee members.

The St Vincent and the Grenadines Umpires Association has a membership of 28.

Agenda items completed at last Saturday’s meeting were the review of the 2017 national cricket season; the presentation of the Secretary/Treasurer’s Report, the President’s Report and any other business.(RT)
