I was surprised to read Kevin Hartney’s comments about Burngreave New Deal being an unnaccountable private company pursuing its own agenda in the ‘Ultimatum for BCAT’ article in the April 2006 Messenger.
Can I point out that every person in Burngreave is directly mailed asking whether they want to stand for the New Deal board and all people in Burngreave have an opportunity to vote for the candidates.
On the other hand, historically, BCAT has not publicly advertised their Annual General Meeting and only people attending the AGM have been eligible to vote for candidates.
