Thank you very much for this nomination.  It is a great honor to be so well
respected by you. It is also with much regret that I decline your offer.


I really had intended on accepting this, but after thinking about the extra
responsibility this position would require,

I realized I would be spreading myself too thin,feeling a bit out of my
element, and regret later not being able to serve OSGeo as well as I wanted
to.  I would also be possibly depriving others with more energy and will
from making their impact.


We have a bright and very energetic group of nominees, and I'm looking
forward to seeing many of them, including David 

serve on our board.


Yours in spirit,
