THE BLUE UNION PUBLIC MEETING
We were overwhelmed by the amount of Evertonians in attendance and apologise wholeheartedly for those who didn’t manage to make it in. We wish to stress that future meetings will be held at a larger venue to cater for the level of support and interest.
The Blue Union would like to take this opportunity to commend the generosity of the real Evertonians in attendance that delved deep into their pockets and helped us raise a four figure sum that will financially support us for future endeavours.
We were delighted that the national media; BBC, Granada and Sky Sports News in particular, were out in force covering the growing levels of unrest and concern that is engulfing the Evertonian population. It was disappointing, however, that the local media were not represented in an official capacity.
Plans are in place with regards to next Saturday’s game at Goodison Park against Aston Villa and we will be releasing further definitive details during the week.
We have taken on board all suggestions that came from the floor today and a committee meeting was held immediately afterwards to discuss the common suggestions and recommendations from fellow Evertonians.
We are pleased to announce that we have now duly elected officers on behalf of The Blue Union. Dave Kelly, who chaired today’s meeting, was unanimously voted to become chairman, with Tony Fitzpatrick from the People’s Group serving as secretary. Joe Jennings from SOS1878 was appointed webmaster and will also oversee The Blue Union’s social media platforms while Simon Magner from Evertonians for Change will take on the role of treasurer.
The Blue Union are well aware of the fact that we are being watched by the media, by the public and by fellow Evertonians. We will continue to be dignified and respectful and we will not give any of our detractors the opportunity to deflect from the real issues.
This is the beginning of the road for The Blue Union. We do not believe there to be a magical solution to Everton’s problems but collectively we may well find the answer to the plight Evertonians are feeling at the moment.
It’s time to rise as one.
