The formal Notice of Election will be advertised locally during the week beginning 9 September 2013. Nomination packs will be available from the week beginning 9 September from local area Service points, on the council’s website and from the Returning Officer, Kilmory, Lochgilphead, PA31 8RT.

With 8 vacancies and 9 candidates it looks as though there might even have to be a ballot this time.

According to the SECC web page they can have up to 10 members. So ... no ballot.

Well, we've just got a ballot paper with 9 names asking us to vote for no more than eight candidates, so it actually is an election of sorts.

Very democratic - but I would have thought that they would welcome as many members as they could get - and it will be quite a headache for the people counting the votes at Kilmory- but maybe they will get overtime -and add to the defecit in the budget.
And someone is going to feel left out in the cold,

A 'lose lose' situation - lots of money and effort wasted and someone who wants to contribute to Seil's welfare feeling rejected. Nuts.
