Vacant Seat for 3rd Governance Steward?

We have looked at this and also the AIPs related to such a situation. Here is some background information in terms of the way this is handled based on the passed related AIPs.

AIP-239 clearly states that elections occur every six months.

The cadence of elections is clearly stated here.

Also it refers back to AIP-138: The Special Council Election Process which it says it follows for Stewards. Again very clearly we have to wait till the next election cycle.

As there is no Ape Assembly as the initiative was cancelled by the GWG and thus cannot follow this suggested process. Also this suggestion is slightly in conflict with the earlier statement in the same AIP that the Stewards process mimics the Special Council Process. As SC process does not have this option of a contributor. That said a contributor would be like any other non elected personnel if we decide to include such a role in the upcoming budget.

@AllCityBAYC and myself have discussed this internally as GWG Stewards and as yet haven’t made an official statement from the GWG to the community. I have only included the points here for ease of reference and are not an official position of the GWG. Thanks @Evil
