Tussle to lead Marist Old Boys

There are two groups which will contest today’s Marist Old Boys  (MOB) agm elections. One is led by retired army officer Jackson Evans (replaced Nesbitt Hazelman but leading the same group) and the other WAF CEO Opetaia Ravai.

Popular opinion among ordinary MOBs is that it is time for a change. So Mr Ravai’s group could do well, especially with their 11 point KPI-driven plan and three years to deliver or ship out.

The outgoing committee is said to be struggling to hold on to power. This is despite not successfully registering the MOB Trust and despite what is claimed to be little activity since being voted in by popular mandate in 2011 after MOBilise 2010.

 

Brothers deal with land issue

The land at Flagstaff earmarked for development is owned by the Marist Brothers and not the MOB.

The development was a business decision for the Brothers who receive nothing financially from the MOB. They got an offer they couldn’t lightly turn down as they looked at funding of Marist work. The deal is rumoured to include a serious injection of funds compared to $nil from MOB elements strongly opposing the project. So the development looks set to go ahead.
