Ballance ward b election draws record field

Ballance Agri-Nutrients’ call last month for director nominations for its Ward B has yielded 9 candidates hoping to replace Dean Nikora who resigned as a director ahead of taking up an international posting.

Ballance Chairman, David Peacocke, says he is delighted that Ward B shareholders have such a strong field of candidates to choose from and he believes that 9 is a record.

“The strong field indicates that we have shareholders who recognise this is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the governance of our co-operative, which is close to being a $1 billion business in terms of revenue. Having high quality candidates for director vacancies is vital to the success of our co-operative, and the response to our call for nominations has certainly achieved that.  We have a very good mix with six men and three women seeking election.

“What we now need is for our Ward B shareholders to participate and ensure they consider each candidate and vote.  It would be very disappointing to have a low voter turnout given the very strong field.”

The candidates are Harvey Bell of Wanganui,  Andy Law of Taihape, Greg Maughan of Martin, Mavis Mullins of Dannevirke, Kevin Old of Morrinsville, Mike Plowman of Owhango, Mike Peterson of Waipukurau, Donna Smit of Whakatane and Sarah Von Dadelszen of Waipukurau. Profiles and a policy statement from each candidate will be available on www.ballance.co.nz from 24 October.

Ward B shareholders will receive their voting packs from 25 October and the election voting will close on 18 November 2014.
