What if Anchor Circle Secretary Interpretation Is Wrong?

Aren't I just always asking the weird ones?

So if an interpretation of Governance is requested - and to the Anchor Circle Secretary because the Roles affected span circles - and the interpretation seems wrong... what are the options?

I believe the only available options are probably -

  • Propose new (hopefully more specific?) Governance
  • Elect a new Anchor Circle Secretary, request new interpretation


Is there something else I'm missing?

Hey [@mention:454478741268114544] For me (and it may seems weird) an interpretation is never wrong, this is just what it is. In a case I sense I would have a different interpretation than the one from the Anchor Circle Sec. , I would ask myself what's the best way to process my tension if I does care. May be explaining the rules of the constitution is a pathway if I sense that such sec. don't get the constitution right (and may be I'm fully wrong) or go to governance to make such records clearer in order to remove the tension or also ask for a reelection if I sense the person is not a good fit for the role, and ay be there are other ways I cannot imagine here as I'm currently in the actual situation.
