If it's irrelevant, then why is it being brought up?

With only one seat up for grabs, I don't really think it matters what
project the board member winds up spending most of his or her time on.

As for whether or not they speak English, I frankly don't think it's
possible for someone who doesn't read and write English well to be an
effective board member - unless maybe they have the money to hire
their own personal translator.
