  1. The reason why you usually only see reappointments and very few new faces to these committees is because of the appointment process. Very seldom do new faces get a spot because almost all reappointments get chosen first. What needs to happen is all applications should be put in a draw box. A council member puts their hand in and pulls one out. process continues until all spots are filled. Make it luck of the draw.
