Part of the problem is that the perceived needs are commonly not 
perceived to be perceived needs but absolute, universal needs.  
Therefore i doubt your suggestion - as sensible as it might be - will 
lead to much.  

This is one thing that amazed me most about the whole campaign process 
of these elections.  While there is an overwhelming cacophony of 
statements being made (both from the candidates and from others) the 
one thing that really helps you see through this smoke screen is 
looking at people's capability of self reflection and their ability to 
recognize how their background shapes their perception and limits their 
ability to make the right assessments and the right decisions.

Those of the members who have not yet cast their vote for the board 
elections and who struggle with their decision might find this a useful 
basis to develop their decision.
