Hi All,

Happy weekend to everyone!  We have 3 candidates for 7 board positions.

(in the order of announcement)

Craig Latta
Tim Rowledge
Marcel Taeumel

No need to wait to announce you are running.  Feel free to announce your
candidacy on the weekend!

Over the years we have had a few questions about running.  One theme, I'm
not a programmer, has come up a few times.  You do not need to be a
programmer to join the Oversight Board. Dedicated users of Squeak have a
lot to contribute!  If you have been on the fence about running for the
board, are not a programmer, but find you are participating a lot in
discussions on Squeak-dev maybe this year is your year to run!

Now is also your time to get on the list to vote.  If you have been lurking
on Squeak-dev and not posting but you follow what is going on please send
me a note and let me know you want to vote. Voting is one way for you to
contribute to your community!  Please take the time to contribute to Squeak
by helping to shape our future!

Ok now back to the weekend!

All the best,

Ron Teitelbaum
