+1 for me, and my sentiments are similar to David’s.

We can all hope that the Board takes this recommendation very seriously, but I would rather only have people who actually are paying attention and reading all the bids really participate. What we deliver to the Board is not simply a vote, but we also provide a conversation, recorded on this list, that expresses any thoughts and concerns we all have based on our experiences running FOSS4G's and other events.
