From: Cameron Shorter <cameron.shorter at gmail.com>
To: Jody Garnett <jody.garnett at gmail.com>, OSGeo CRO <cro at osgeo.org>
I would like to nominate Jody Garnett to serve on the OSGeo Board.
Jody is a man who has a depth of experience with the OSGeo foundation,
right from getting his hands dirty writing code, through to setting up
and managing projects, through to evangelising at conferences and
workshops, as well as chairing OSGeo committees.
He steps up to tackle the hard problems, provides insightful feedback
and advice, as well ask taking on the less exciting tasks to get things
done. This depth of can-do practical experience will serve OSGeo well if
Jody were voted onto the OSGeo board.
For background: Jody chairs the OSGeo Incubation committee, was on the
FOSS4G 2007 and FOSS4G 2009 organising committees, has presented
regularly at conferences and workshops, is on the Project Steering
Committees for UDig, GeoTools, GeoServer, and is a regular contributor
to numerous OSGeo email lists.
