Hi Owen,
Thanks for your email, brother.

...considering the very context, what's your
understanding of the content of "a" here, please.

Look! the sentence ends with a simple comparison;
 isn't that the key for a common understanding of
the appropriate content of the word representative?

In other words: find the way *a* proxy is designated,
then you should be able to know more about the
first *a*...

Thanks once more!
