Duly noted. But since the secretary's job routinely involves
running votes and DPL elections in which I have strong opinions, and
interpreting the constitution is an integral part of the process, I
would not be secretary if I did not think I could do my job
impartially despite that.
If it appears to me that my judgement as secretary is being
affected, I shall immediately recuse myself and delegate the power.
After all is said and done, a hell of a lot more is said than done.
