9 It should be stricken.
11 Instead, a majority of council members can vote to impeach if warranted,
12 and an election is immediately held. The impeached councilor is
13 eligible to re-run. The impeached councilor still is in power until
14 voted out.
16 If some councilor is making a big difference in Gentoo, I don't want to
17 see them booted simply because they couldn't make two meeting dates, and
18 there is no reason they should have to appoint a sub (though they should
19 of course be able to). Ditto for the whole mess where the council
20 managed to miss-communicate a date and we had to hold another election.
21 What value did that add?
23 We're adults. Let's elect council members once per year, and have
24 provisions for problems, but let's not micro-manage how often they must
25 meet/etc.
27 I'm not aware of any serious organization that has these kinds of rules
28 for their board of directors...
