And it's especially wrong to ask the question now, when only five of the
nine At Large members have been elected. If the Board as properly
constituted -- 9 elected from the At Large and 9 elected from the SOs --
wants to reconsider its organization, so be it. But to revise the
representation structure before some Directors have even been elected smacks
of capture by those elected first.
Let's implement what was originally designed before we try to fix it.
