Self nomination for Hildon Community Board

I'm Woody14619 on TMO and currently a member of the Maemo Council.

During my last run for Council, my stated intention was to increase the visibility and transparency of the operation of Council. During my term, I saw to it that there were weekly open meetings with minutes presented to the community on the Council blog (usually in a timely fashion). I also got involved in a number of other activities that were Council and community related, and hope that those efforts have been (and will continue to be) seen as positive steps taken to help the community.

Unfortunately, my day job has begun to cycle up for it's typical busy season of October through March. Part of the reason I agreed to run for the current cycle was because I knew I would have the time to dedicate in the summer period. I equally know that my time will be limited for the next cycle.

As a result, I do not feel it would be beneficial to the community for me to run for Council again this cycle. I will not have the time to invest as I did this cycle, beyond offering the minimal service of creating meeting minutes. If someone else nominates me, I will stand for the position, but I will not nominate myself knowing the limited time I will have for the position.

I would however, like to nominate myself for the Board, with that caveat that my participation would be minimal for the October to March time frame. That alone will probably find me last in the list, meaning I would not be on the Board unless several others nominate themselves at the last minute. None the less, I would like to apply.

Regardless of the outcome of the election, I pledge to offer any aid I can to the next Council and/or Board, and will make efforts to continue to participate in any public meetings of both bodies.
