I think a body of Ombudsees, appointed by the FPL, confirmed by the
Board, serving 1-2 year terms. The reasons being the following:
1) Multiple people are going to be needed because unless RH is paying
for it, these people will be volunteering to deal with grumpy
2) Elections do not make sense to me in this case. The person is a
facilitator which is a set of skills not everyone has nor one that
people are going to be able to see to elect if X is better than Y.
