The Monte – a governor unable to vote

Through circumstances beyond my control, I am unable to be present at the AGM of The Montefiore Home on 7 December .

As a governor, I am entitled to vote but the current constitution denies me this right. With some thirty years of active involvement in our community, I have attended Annual General Meetings of Montefiore Home in the past particularly when I believed my vote was important and would have liked to have been there on Sunday. I am disappointed that this year my opinion, through my vote, will neither be heard nor counted. This requirement to be present in person seems so anomalous and a denial of a fundamental right.
