I agree that this is important, and I'll be running on a very similar
platform in the next election, but this doesn't solve the problem of
the number of involved/qualified people. If anything, it makes it
worse by increasing the demands on at least some of the people
involved. Long-term, we should have an 11-member board again- but only
after we've established that we consistently have a large number of
active, qualified, committed candidates. We have to admit that we
don't right now, and act accordingly.
