I don't think that the time spent is a good measurement. I prefer to use

We all know people that spend 80h/week at work, saying all the time that
they are busy and, in the end, don't achieve anything (or annoy those
who want to achieve something).

On the other hand, I know some people who always look relax and you
never see them actually working (or rarely). But they have an amazing
track of achievements.

If elected, I will have the chance that working on the foundation will
be compatible with my job. I don't plan to count the hours, I will
concentrate on getting things done.

Board members are elected representatives. They don't take decision for
themselves, they are the voice of the people who voted for them. As
such, I believe that any formal vote/decision of board members should be
made public.

If some opacity is required, it should be well defined and for a given
time. Or at least, it should be justified.
