  1. Geez! I read the article to find out what was achieved since July 22, 2022, in regards to the 4 bulleted points of focus, outlined.

    As usual, nothing achieved; no positive impact reported.

    What is the point of appointing stewards in either party to manage the affairs of the state & region?
