I am not convinced that the need is great enough for the BoT to invoke
the emergency PDP; neither through flaws in 2008-6 which the community
accepted nor through current circumstances.
My $.02: I agree with others that the Board's concerns should have
been raised during the transfer policy discussions that have taken

community) and maintains community consensus as an integral part of
the policy process.
