Proposal: The Arbitrum Coalition

No, just no.

First, can the organizations involved demonstrate their time is worth $650-$1500/ hour? Those are the requested amounts. That seems exorbitant … as in “more than I pay for Harvard lawyers” exorbitant, literally.

Second, if the advocate is supposed to be an independent voice for the DAO, the advocate should be elected separately. There’s not even a veneer of independence if the advocate is proposed in the same breath as the council, never mind being actually nominated by the candidates for the council.

The fact the council candidates thought this was a good idea is disqualifying in my opinion. I’m voting no and urge others to do the same.
