There are 4 things I would like you to help with:
1. I believe most of you are spending hours managing or contributing to the Python ecosystem. If you do, you are eligible to become a voting member. Please register as a voting member. Learn more about the different memberships here
2. Once you're registered, please nominate for me
3. When the election starts, please vote for me
4. And the most important thing: Please run with me. It's not a competition between us because we can vote for multiple nominees, and from my point of view anyone from this group of ours who is elected to the PSF board is a win for all of us here. If you do run with me, I will nominate and also vote for you. I will also help review your nomination statement if you'd like me to. I attach here the draft of my nomination statement as a reference and inspiration if you're not sure what to write.
