don't worry about how to say them. If several people have spoken, try not to be
repetitious. If there are several with the same concerns, please try to appoint
a spokesperson. The Commission is particularly interested in the specific
reasons you are for or against a proposal because the Commission's decision
needs to be based on specific reasons.
