I'm going to insist on being a pendant about this.  Sorry.  

Pia claimed that the reason that noms were sent to the list was because of 
transparency.  This is also about transparency.  If a candidate who has the 
required number of noms has declined or withdrawn then that needs to be 
included on the noms page.  Otherwise it looks dodgy.  

The other alternative is for you to have a separate page for all the 
candidates, not just those nominated. The number of candidates needs to match 
those on the ballot.  It would make it easier to read their blurbs as well.
