I always wonder, in these discussions, how small a minority needs to be
before it loses its credibility when claiming oppression by the
majority. With only 9 members to elect it may be difficult to get a
director for each interest. And some of those, arguably minority,
interests can be very vocal (Thinly veiled reference ;-) ).
