Eleven candidates have thrown their hat in the ring for this year's TECT elections.

Nominations closed for the 2016 TECT election at midday today.

There are 11 candidates for the three places on the trust. This compares to 19 candidates in 2014, 23 candidates in 2012, and 18 in 2010.

The confirmed candidates are:


Natalie Bridges
John Cameron
Anna D'Arcy
Bill Holland
Steve Joseph Penn
Raimarie Pointon
Hylton Rhodes
Tracey Rudduck-Gudsell
Amanda Sutcliffe
Bob Tulloch
Peter White

Existing Trustees Bruce Cronin and Ken Collings have chosen not to stand, but current Chair Bill Holland is re-standing.

"I take this opportunity to thank both Bruce and Ken for their outstanding service to TECT", said general manager, Wayne Werder. "Both Bruce and Ken have been long serving Trustees and TECT would not be where it is today without their considered input".

The election is being carried out by both internet and postal voting, with voter packs being sent out on June 27.

This is the sixth election for TECT that has used online voting, but consumers can only vote using one method. If votes are received by both internet and post from the same consumer, both their votes will be invalid. Each consumer is entitled to one vote irrespective of how many power connections they may have. Voting closes at midday on July 22.
