It puts the board in the position of being able to appoint the board through the casual vacancy process for up to nearly the full term of each board seat potentially.

It allows a corrupt board to perpetuate itself by eliminating the elected members in favor of appointing corrupt members for the remainder of the term.

OTOH, if they are limited to casual vacancies only lasting until the next meeting at which elections can occur, it prevents this process because they cannot appoint members to multi-year terms.
