His "interest" was not limited to him alone. Notice the 'everyone else'.

Oh I agree, but as everyone already knows, the two candidates were extremely
qualified and once that was known outside of Z1, which is well documented, then
their 'concerns' should have subsided.

Which seemed to be the case when an issue arose and everyone put their 2 cents
in. The issue was handled internally by the constituents and we moved on
electing a new Z1C who received a substantial majority of the votes. There was
no need for the snide remarks from a few. That's all I'm trying to say.

Be well...
