William, while I failed to join the discussion in the last 2 meetings
and haven't been able to check what was approved, I'm also interested in
this point. So Chrissy is not alone in this.
I also note that for the few months I followed the discussion on the nfp
list about the bylaws, I only remember a mention to this around the
council election time and I wasn't aware that it had in fact been enacted.
My personal opinion is that making this a rule is wrong and can prove to
be counter-productive. I understand the reasons you and others have
raised, but in my view this should be left to the voters - it is (or
should be) their choice in the end.
