I find your words very difficult to accept. You were the one who initiated this 
PDP, against arguments made that the Council is already overworked and would 
have difficulty coping with an added task. As you know, I was not in favour of 
a PDP. But a vote was called and the outcome was a green light for the PDP. 
Once that happened, I considered all previous arguments for or against moot and 
agreed to help in any way I could. I and others on this group have put in the 
time required to do the calls (only one, the second one is now) to try and move 
this process forward. For you to come back like this and call those calls 
useless is, at the least, very discouraging for those of us who have gotten 
themselves involved in this work.
