Thanks - that looks fine.
I would have much preferred it if all three would have offered their
seats - all three have already served a three year term which in the
past has been the maximum duration people have served on the board
without standing for re-election.

What i find intriguing about the idea is that candidates in that
scenario would not have the option to simply agree to what another
candidate has said (something that frequently happened during past
elections) but would need to formulate their standpoints on the
different matters themselves. This could give members a more authentic
and more complete view of the candidates opinions.
Consolidating questions without introducing a cultural or political bias
seems like an extremely tough job - i would not feel up to doing this.
I am looking forward to seeing who is going to try doing this.
Naturally people submitting questions also have the option to publicly
post the questions in addition so everyone can have exactly the level
of transparency they desire.
