My name is John-Reed Maffeo and my Squeak code signature is jrm.

As a hobbyist Smalltalk programmer who, even after 20 years, still
considers himself a newbie and struggles to grok the essence of OO and yet
still aspires to achieve recognition as a Knight of the Square Bracket, I
now stand ready, spear in hand, to offer my services once again.

My platform is simple,

I am experimenting with cross platform development using Mac, Windows,
Linux and Android and the colorful abstraction is helpful to me. I wrote
the #SensorReporter to help me as I jump around different platforms and
install new releases which insist on setting the default to a non-native
configuration. I agree with the wiki entry
*Andrew P. Black on mouse button colors and the command key*

 In closing, my fellow §queakers should know that I can be unreliable,
mercurial, absent minded, and unreliable, but I am willing to give it a try
and try to do by best to help keep the wheels on the bus.

> Now until Monday 20th of January 3 PM (20.00 UTC): Nominations of SOB members and campaigning!
> Candidates should nominate themselves and start their campaign on the squeak-dev mailing list. Or if you nominate someone else, make sure that person really wants to run. :) I will not put anyone on the candidate list until that person makes it known on squeak-dev that he/she intends to run.
> During this period, the candidates should ideally present themselves on squeak-dev, unless they have already done so, and the community can ask questions.
> I encourage you to reach out to potential candidates, people that are active in the community and represent your views, and ask them to run. Some people will not run without encouragement.  Also, I know that some people wait to the last minute to run for the board to see if others will run but please consider getting this year off to a faster start and just jump right in!

> Now until Monday 20th of January 3 PM (20.00 UTC): Nominations of SOB members and campaigning!
> Monday 20th of January 2020 3 PM (20.00 UTC): Candidate list is finalized.
> Monday 20th of January 2020 4 PM (21.00 UTC): Online election starts.
> Tuesday 4th of February 2020 4 PM (23.00 UTC): Online election ends.
> Results will be announced immediately after the election ends.
> The voting period is two week long and ballots are sent out via email.
> And how do you end up on the voter list? See below. :)
> IMPORTANT: New voters will NOT be added once the election is started. You MUST try to get on the voter list before the 20st of January 2020 or you will NOT be able to vote. If your Email has changed please try to make sure it is changed on the list of voters before the election starts.

> If you were invited to vote last year you are already on the voter list, no worries! If you are a new Squeaker and wish to vote you should do ONE of the following:
>       * Get a "known" Squeaker to vouch for you. If a known Squeaker sends an email to voters (at) squeak.org giving me a name and email for you, then I will add you.
>       * Send an email to voters at squeak.org yourself (and CC to squeak-dev if you like) with information/arguments showing me that you are indeed serious about voting and that you are indeed a Squeaker.
> When the voting period starts all voters will receive an email with instructions and a link to the voting website.
> If there are any further questions, just reply *in this thread* and I will closely track it - or send email to voters (at) squeak.org which points to me.
