If that is true, why are most boards set up in odd numbers? The answer is to prevent the occurrence of a tie. OR the president, mayor, etc. don't get a vote unless there is a tie. There actually is a reason to fill the seat. Ties do happen especially if the board is divided in other ways. Having an odd number of people on the board had a specific intent. There are important issues coming before this board and I would rather have an extra head in the game than not. I don't have an agenda regarding who should be appointed but it needs to be taken care of by the board immediately. Just appoint someone! Nine months is almost a third of someone's term on the board so you can't tell me it doesn't matter.
