I discussed with both James and Jimmy the choice of the word "unanimous". I'm satisfied with their responses. The BoT had a straw poll to make a decision about the leadership in November and the result of that poll may or may not have been unanimous (I'm fine with it being a straw poll at that point in time given the fact that there was a big information asymmetry among BoT members which would question doing a real poll. I'm also happy to see that BoT members are listening and want to improve our information sharing mechanisms). However, all BoT members agreed to support Lila, which is what Patricio has told us.
As a side note, I'd like to ask that we don't bring the conversations specifically tagged private to lists or conversations that include a broader audience. For example, staff were asked to create a safe space for everyone and not share the content of the November meeting publicly.
