You are promising a lot for someone not into politics. You are also
taking a lot of time talking about other things that are unrelated to
Cuis. Not that any of these are wrong. It just makes me think a bit...
and I have a question for you.

Why didn't you run for the Board?

You have a clear picture of what you want and you are no short of
words about the subject that passionate you. This is a good thing.
Some people who ran for the board did not have had as much to say as
you do. I wonder why you did not take your chance to "straighten up"
things. This would also have been an incredible opportunity for you to
gauge the interest of your peers and readjust yourself if otherwise

Now, you may say very harsh things about the board and perhaps they
are all true. History has however taught us that every time one of two
parties retracted from the adversity in spite of what they truly
believed, the other party came to absolute power and bad things
