Jeremy, did you forget that there was a Candidate's Forum, exactly for that reason. You chose to wait until the last minute to throw your hat into the ring.
I have thought hard about this and because I tried to make nominations available for as many people and up to the last minute, I ended up with this situation. What started out as a good intentioned plan backfired on me
The only way that I could think of to fix this was to have nominations open for one month
and have campaigning for two months
and there will be no campaigning at the meeting on election day
