The operative word, above, is "vote." We can't quantify the positions
of those who didn't vote. We also can't infer that the plurality of
the vote is somehow nefarious, because not everyone voted. The 75 had
an opportunity to be part of the process and, thus, cast their vote,
but obviously chose not to do so.

With respect to the WLS proposal and per the published minutes of the
conference call, each participant vocalized their vote. The
distinctive grouping was the majority who did not favor WLS. There's
nothing wrong with that.
