I'd like to nominate Michael Smith for the board election.
Mike works for the US Army Corps of Engineers Remote Sensing GIS Center
and has been a long time power user, supporter and contributor of
MapServer, GDAL/OGR and other OSGeo projects. He is a member of the
MapServer PSC and is also one of the instigators behind the PDAL
project, the GDAL of Point Clouds. In addition to his experience with
the OSGeo projects and community, he would bring to the board the
perspective of government organizations.
He is a FOSS4G regular (he has not missed one since the 2003 MapServer
Users Meeting), and an active participant and supporter of the FOSS4G
WMS Benchmarking exercise each year.
Finally, Mike has been following the activities of the board for the
last few years (at least), often present as a quiet observer in IRC
board meetings and even in one of the face to face meetings, so I
believe he is well aware of the way OSGeo operates and prepared for the
challenges of serving on the board.
