Looks like I'm still in the game! Just received word from Kevin Kline (Past PASS President). Here are the candidates:
- Andy Warren
- Douglas McDowell
- Louis Davidson
- Lynda Rab (incumbent)
- Pat Wright (incumbent)
- Thomas LaRock
And part of the confirmation included this:
"The entire slate is very competent with six candidates running for three at-large board seats. Previous board elections have been low-key, but this election will be highly competitive. Consequently, we encourage you to begin your campaign in a tasteful, but energetic fashion. What is appropriate campaigning and what is not? Blogging, hand-shaking, direct emails to your buddies, wearing a button at the Summit, and other such personal measures are fully appropriate in your “get out the vote” efforts. Spam and shotgun-blast emails to large mailing lists, webpage ads and other impersonal measures are not appropriate."
Of course it's Friday and the Summit is next week, so I'm not sure I'll be able to get together much of a game plan for the campaign. I think I'll see if Steve Jones & Grant Fritchey want to be co-campaign managers!
Seriously, past elections have been almost pro forma, and I'm not sure this one won't be either. I think a fair way to proceed would be to have each candidate post a one page position statement on the PASS web site, that way everyone could at least compare apples to apples. If that doesn't work out, I'll need Plan B. Ideas anyone?
