I would like to clarify this sentence, though. I do not think the
election officials serve the TC, neither the TC serves the
election officials. Both bodies serve the community and the
processes defined by it.

It's more accurate to say that the election officials are *appointed
by* the TC, but I agree we're all here to serve the community. In
the particular matter of identifying leaderless teams, the election
officials are definitely acting as advisors to the TC, and I can see
how it might be taken as a bit demeaning to imply that it makes them
servants of the TC. They are charged with reporting these findings
to the TC however, so in a sense that is a form of servitude.
Basically, you're both correct depending on how you look at it. ;)

I'm not sure how the phrase "to serve" has become equated with the phrase "to be demeaned" but it is a leap I don't make myself.

I consider to be of service to be a privilege and an honour. I was honoured to serve the TC as an election official, I guess it is my mistake in believing that others would value the same honour.
