Dear CRO,

I would like to nominate Michael Smith for the OSGeo Board election.

Mike works for the US Army Corps of Engineers Remote Sensing GIS Center 
of Expertise and has been a long time power user, supporter and 
contributor of MapServer, GDAL/OGR, PDAL and other OSGeo projects. He is 
a member of the MapServer and PDAL project PSC's and was actually one of 
the instigators behind the PDAL project, the GDAL of Point Clouds. He is 
also a FOSS4G regular and has not missed one since the 2003 MapServer 
Users Meeting AFAIK.

Mike has been active on the OSGeo Board since 2014 as treasurer. The 
great job that he does behind the scene as treasurer doesn't get noticed 
publicly by the members, but it includes several tasks and 
responsibilities which are instrumental to keeping OSGeo running smoothly.

In addition to his experience within OSGeo projects and its community, 
he also brings to the board the perspective of government organizations, 
which is a very important group of users and contributors of OSGeo software.

Plus, the voice of reason that he brings to the day to day operation of 
the board is also of great value.

All this makes him a perfect candidate to continue serving on the board.
