Yes, Donna, I would agree with your email. I was going to contact Nick about this privately, but I see that his email address is no longer listed on the information page. I really do not understand what I did to deserve such disrespect. I simply asked for some clarification on the motion as a way to prevent any further miscommunication on the matter.
