Hello Maureen,

I don't need to be educated on those who are eligible to decide on the
Chair of ALAC neither did I make a comment to address a confusion.

I believe my concern about the content of the mail which you originally
wrote to ALAC members was clear enough, I would have made the same
observation if I was on the ALAC and received the original mail.

Once again I have noting for or against you continuing as Chair(not that it
matters anyway), but we should not gag that through.

All the best.
