[OSGeo-Discuss] Fwd: Board nomination: Maria Arias de Reyna

Looks like I goofed bigtime!

In my oversight, I mistakenly thought this was a nomination for Maria Antonia Brovelli.

And so was wishing to advance that in the most positive way. 

Maybe my delirium from being on the road for over three weeks of European travel contributed to that.

My apologies to Maria Arias de Reyna.

Even the 'Angels' are rooting for Maria for her intrepid OS geospatial passion, thank you Angelos! 

I too second or third Maria into OSGeo infinity (if I am able from my current or proposed position). 

Maria has spent a lifetime serving the interests of OSGeo even before OSGeo was OSGeo. 

What more can we say for the Board in becoming stronger than "Andiamo Maria Antonia Brovelli!"

I would also like to second Maria's nomination for the Board.

Maria has shown strong leadership and passion!
