If she was nominated, would you expect her to withdraw?
Look, for the record, I'm pretty jaded about this whole "politics on ATS" hullabaloo.
However, if you are willing to do the job, and family ties are truly the reason for your withdrawal, I think you should reconsider.
Heck, I'm not withdrawing, even though I wonder if I'm being a hypocrite for not doing so.
If the members of ATS elect you, and you're willing and able to do the job, I think you should consider doing it.
Whatever your decision may be, I respect it, but I don't think marital ties are a good enough reason to disqualify you.
