Regarding the compromise, a few points to bear in mind:

  1. The compromise was agreed by delegates from all assemblies as their opinion of the best/fairest selection of projects overall for Ward 2 within the budget.

  2. As a matter of principle, every project proposed by the assemblies was listed on the ballot. No project recommended by the assemblies was removed. And there was no limit on how many projects assemblies could propose: some proposed a couple some proposed far more.

  3. Because of point 2 (i.e. every project proposed on the appears and not all assemblies proposed the same number of projects) it makes sense to give voters a "slate" that fits the budget and strikes a good overall balance for whole ward, as decided by the assembly delegates.
