Kyle has hit the nail on the head here: Too many cooks spoil the soup.

Is there no one we can trust to provide us with some small direction here?

Given the opportunity, each person who votes might present a different
opinion. That is chaos.

There are some fine examples in history of small appointed bodies producing
governmental documents that the "masses" were able to lay hold of and
support in spite of their various and varied differences.

We have vested Nicole with this appointment. She has, in turn sought some
consultation as she saw best in her judgment (which judgment we decided to
trust when we vested her with that appointment.) Second guessing it now is
effectively failing to back up the appointment we made. This has surely got
to be a source of great discouragement to her and a hindrance to getting the
job done.

It is clear that she is very conscious of the opinions and concerns
expressed in recent days. Doubtless these have been taken into

I would humbly suggest that we now just let Nicole do the job we requested
of her by appointing her to this task.

Respectfully submitted with a smile and a light heart,
