Clearly not. I'm telling you first because that seemed prudent. We
should publicize this more widely once that's done. We can talk about
how to do that. I suppose y'all will know how to do that better within
your community than I do.

I think there is just confusion here.

The whole CC and the whole DMB (which is basically the
part/representative of the TB that is relevant for this discussion) all
found unamimously in favor. We all had a little back and forth about the
amount of time we thought it would take to get things set up and decided
3 months was a good conservative time. It can take nearly that long to
get nominators, to elect someone, and get them set up on a council. It
would be kind of a waste if their council disappeared out from under
them as soon as that was done.

I'm sorry that wasn't clear. Hopefully it's cleared up now.
