To my fellow council members,

I believe that this responds to the CSG complaint against me.

While it is unlikely that I will be faced with many more opportunities  
for voting in the council before the end of my term, I will no longer  
force myself to abstain from votes as of this point.

I thank you for the opportunity to air this issue and to bring it to  
the Board's attention.
