I skimmed the original thread and saw a lot of good natured campaigning, but I'd like to have a thread dedicated strictly to members who would like
to make the case for their nominees of choice- other than themselves.
I don't have opinions on all of the positions, but there are a few I would like to present for your consideration- and remember, with turnout this
low so far, voting really does count! If you know somebody who will do right by us, bring them up and get them nominated!
The DISC and "at large" positions are two that I have fairly strong opinions on.
I strongly recommend GradyPhilpott for DISC. I haven't always agreed with him, but he's intelligent, aware, and active in most of the threads where
I have encountered him. I think he'd be a valuable voice and would have a very low drama factor. He's also a Marine- not that it's incredibly
relevant but you gotta love Marines. His opponents are a bunch of draft-dodging girly men. lol
I would suggest Off_the_Street for "at large". Another mature, intelligent, low drama nomination. According to his avatars he has both an AK-47 and
a guitar- two very important tools for influencing people.
In general I strongly urge members to get interested, consider the most intelligent and responsible members they know, and make nominations. Don't
just take somebody you agree with- pick somebody with the maturity to do right for us. And of course, please contribute your opinions to this thread
and let's try to get a feel for who we want so that we can make this experiment work sans drama.
Closing note: DO NOT discuss your own qualifications here for the love of Pete. I'm begging.
