Indeed, but you seem to have missed out how you'll avoid it. The board
concept doesn't seem to have any details on who would serve on it at
what time, except essentially "by appointment of the DPL" when the DPL
decides that someone has done some things that the DPL wants done.

Saying that you're committed to avoiding that is fine, but the question
remains *how* you'd do so which is absent from the platform.

Apologies for not making myself clearer for you on this, but I'm afraid
you're putting words into my mouth here. It's a concept that I find
interesting, and would put more thought into it when elected, but I do
not intend on appointing a 2IC.
