    MRC executive double their terms to 12yrs!

    It does not read well for the MRC executive

    "Another member attempted to move twice that all postal votes be discarded given that all members had not been adequately informed about postal votes and that a number of votes had been solicited through the sending of postal ballots to select "friends".

    The postal votes were then announced a total of 139, of which 110 were in favour.

    A vote was then taken of those attending. A majority voted against.

    The motion was eventually carried directly as a result of the postal votes. It would not have passed with the members in the room.

    Melbourne Racing Club spokesman Jake Norton confirmed that Le Grand had told the meeting he had sent out emails and postal vote forms to "a select group of friends" so they could vote on the extended terms for office bearers."
