I HONESTLY DONT THINK ANY OF THEM ARE WORTH VOTING FOR. I REALLY THINK WE NEED A TOTALLY AND NEW OFFICE BEARING COMMITTEE.

Well that's why people need to vote! Only 1 of the 9 candidates up for election is a returning committee member.

Too many people have been apathetic in the past & haven't voted - that's why DV is in the position it's in today.

Time to stop the apathy and have a say in how you want YOUR organisation run.

Cheers

I think you should make them work for it a bit more than they traditionally do.

Ask each one publicly about real issues we talk about every day here where they stand on allowing cross bred oodle breeders to be members and how would they chuck them out if they dont want them there because there are a bunch of them intheir membership including some pretty big names - one who breeds purebred dogs but none registered!

Ask them how they feel about breed specific legislation

How they feel about tail docking etc etc

more regulation and restrictions on breeding

and a couple of hundred more so people know what they stand for and what they w ill be saying as they represent the members if they get in

Traditionally no one has a clue about what any of them think or stand for. Make them accountable and transparent before they get in.

2 of these candidates work in the VCA Office. I'm not sure that is a good combination.

That's not correct. NONE of the candidates work in the Office.

If you are referring to Tania Kirkland & Emma Duff they are longer employees of DOGS Victoria.

Tania Kirkland resigned from her position in 2008 & Emma Duff left in October 2012.

these are the two I was referring to. Did not know Emma Duff had resigned and I stand corrected. Tania Kirkland was working in the VCA office in June/July last year when I was in there and I have seen her working there on several ocassions since 2008. If she too is indeed no longer working there then again I stand corrected.

As I type this message I am currently on the phone to Tania Kirkland who is falling about laughing at your misinformation. There must have been an imposter in the office at the times you state you were in there as Tania has NOT worked for Dogs Victoria since July 2008. I can also confirm this fact as I took over her job when she left.

Tania would like to know if you actually know her & if so why are you stating that she was working in the Office last year & on other ocassions since 2008 when she clearly wasn't?

Cheers

My apologies, a case of mistaken identity. Thanks for pointing out my mistake. No offense intended to anyone.

After a full statement of standing corrected she feels that is appropriate?

Lost my vote...

This is a classic example of one of the really crappy things about the dog world! People making incorrect statements about other people without checking their facts first.

Tania has every right to have a good laugh about it.

It's beyond my comprehension why that should cost her votes in the election.

Or perhaps there is more to this than a simple case of mistaken identity. Are dirty tactics coming into play here? Very easy for people to come on to forums such as this & hide behind their user names & make false & unwarranted statements about the candidates for election.

No more than a genuine case of mistaken identy on my part and you are right I should have checked my facts. However, you have just fallen into your own "crappy thing" of the dog world by the suggestion that others are using dirty tactics without you checking your facts first.

I don't know Odins Warrior and have not colluded with her/him to partake in dirty tactics and I think that her/his post was purely as she/he felt that my comment that I stood corrected had been rejected. But then again maybe I should check my facts.

Things were running like clockwork bace in 2008 at the office from memory, might be one worth voting for = if I get my votiing papers in time, still waiting
