It came as a pleasant surprise on Saturday 27th April , to read that your Friday meeting resulted in the decision to have an " Extraordinary General Meeting "! That you chose this course of action demonstrates that you are NOW Listening to your Membership !
ALL the reports i read , indicate that there is a Groundswell of Opinion , that feels Pat Mc Quaid , has had his time in the office of President of the UCI ! Should he be refused a Nomination by Cycling Ireland as a result of the " EGM ", then let the Swiss run the risk of suffering the Derision of the Cycling World , should it choose to offer him as their nominee !
When the results are in from the " EGM " , and it is clear that Pat Mc Quaid will not receive support for a Nomination , may i suggest that you forward " Anto Moran's name " as the Candidate of Cycling Ireland ! As to whether " Anto Moran " will consider accepting this proposal , i feel sure that his INTEGRITY , is such , that other Countries will be happy to endorse the Proposal . This man has shown the Cycling World that he will not be a party to the " Shenanigans " that have taken place in Aigle , during the past Generation .
Anto Moran , has done Volunteer work for Cycling Ireland and will be as aware of what is needed in the UCI , as any other Candidate . He would probably be reluctant to live in Aigle & Switzerland , full time , BUT , this is a world where SO MUCH of the admin work can be done over the Internet . Physically being on site is not a Game Breaker . During the period he will hold that Office , he could oversee the CHANGES that are required to improve the Constitution of the UCI , remove " Anti Doping " to another authority , and implement the changes that will see the UCI become more Transparent .
All the items that you proposed to Pat Mc Quaid , to be considered , would be at the forefront of Anto's agenda . He appears to be a man of principle and would undoubtedly win over ALL Those with a different agenda !
As time is pressing , i would ask that Anto be consulted , IMMEDIATELY , so that in sending out the " Notice of EGM " , you will be able to include this proposal for consideration also ?

PS Whilst i do not expect an answer , i would appreciate an office worker , acknowledging receipt of this Email !
