The Office of the Chair has decided not to hold a game-side referendum on [2245.AB] Local Council Representative, as it does not directly affect the game-side community nor its home governance; the amendment simply removes a de facto useless provision of the Charter. Neither the community nor Council would be truly affected by this amendment, except maybe the non-existent representative.

Vote has passed, this thread no longer needs to be open.
