I nominate Regina Obe for the OSGeo Board of Directors. Regina is a member
of the PostGIS steering Committee and has been an OSGeo Charter Member since
2009. Regina has a particular strength that is very rare in the Open Source
world and that is her dedication to making open source software and
programming accessible to the often non-technical savvy GIS user. Regina
(along with her husband Leo) have maintained the BostonGIS blog and the
Postgres Online Journal for many years providing quick and understandable
tutorials, guides, and cheat sheets for various projects with a particular
focus on PostgreSQL/PostGIS, much of this has culminated in the recent
publication of *Postgis in Action.* While Regina has a very strong technical
background, I believe that Regina could help drive a focus on the usability
and accessibility of OSGeo projects.
