    Jean,
    Yes, I think Mike is just covering the bases of what could and/or might happen, so that the Warrant Committee is ready for any eventuality. This is the first time that I think that I have seen these motions shared. I have always seen them in a notebook at town meetings, but since I was not involved with making the motions, I have generally not paid a lot of attention to them.
