R2K are pleased that the outcome of the election reaffirms its influence with St.George members. The R2K candidates received a high level of positive feedback and support throughout the campaign.
R2K will continue its work to ensure that the best interests of St.George are looked after in the joint-venture. In particular, R2K will attempt to ensure that OKI Jubilee Stadium is maintained as a multi-purpose community asset and that 50% of Dragons home games are allocated to Kogarah. R2K will also work to ensure that the facilities at St.George Leagues Club continue to be maintained and enhanced.
R2K would like to congratulate the incumbent Directors on retaining their positions and would like to thank Danny Robinson and Michael Derrig for their diligence as the Returning Officers.
Finally, R2K would like to thank the numerous supporters who attended the Club over the four days of the election to assist with the distribution of the voting leaflets.
