A sign of a healthy committee is that it does its work promptly and undramatically. The ombudsman commission is such a committee. Charged with investigating alleged privacy violations around the checkuser tool, the commission has functioned with a high degree of professionalism and efficiency. The commission is appointed under the auspices of the Board, who have delegated this role to the staff - first to Cary, and then I took it on.
Accordingly, after a great bit of deliberation, I offered the ombudsmen the ability to extend their current term for one additional year. All, with the exception of one, have chosen to do so. The one who has not is Pundit, who has accepted a position as a steward. Dweller, who was an advisory member of the commission, takes Pundit's seat. It should be noted that this was done some time ago - I have been extremely remiss in sending out the notification. There was no lapse of commission, and the commission functioned fully during the gap period.
