MU General Secretary election
The results of the election were announced today by the Independent Scrutineer. The ballot of members was held between 6 and 27 March 2017 and there were two candidates: MU Executive Committee member Kathy Dyson, who received 1,732 votes, and MU Assistant General Secretary Horace Trubridge, who received 2,193 votes.
Horace Trubridge says:
“‘I am absolutely delighted that the members have chosen me to take the Union forward following John Smith’s retirement in July. Having spent the last few months travelling around the country and talking to the members, I have a very clear vision of where the Union should be heading – building on John’s fantastic work of the last fifteen years – and I am eager to get started. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Executive Committee and all the members of our Union for their tremendous support, I look forward to justifying that support and meeting the difficult challenges that lay ahead.”
The full Independent Scrutineer’s report will be published in the summer issue of The Musician journal.
