Subject: Board Nomination for Jeff McKenna

I'd like to nominate Jeff McKenna for the board election. Little needs
to be said about Jeff as he is widely known in and outside the OSGeo
community for his passion of our community, straight forward approach
and a fantastic sense of humor.

Jeff whom I know personally since the famous initial FOSS4G 2004
conference in Bangkok is supporting the ideals and daily business of
FOSS4G community and OSGeo Foundation with all his energy. Jeff is
well known for more than a decade in the Mapserver community and its
PSC, and he is known as a driving force of OSGeo around the globe.
Jeff is one of the original charter members (from 2006, year of
"birth" of OSGeo) and has years of experience serving on the OSGeo

Jeff is always available to listen to existing or potential community
members in order to bring the community ideals of OSGeo forward. He is
truely international, proven by his wide, visible network. Jeff has
assisted in the formation of several OSGeo local chapters worldwide
and especially supported the FOSS4G conferences the world over.

He is being a important friend to many community members. I am glad
that Jeff has agreed to stand for re-election and continue to lend his
voice, face and wisdom to OSGeo.
