And I hope they take that option!

Aside from the chance to yet again be the sacrificial lamb who
represents Shadowman, I really wanted to keep myself out of the election
this time.  Too many incumbents and people with high visibility makes it
harder for newer folks to get elected, by drawing votes and attention
away.

Then, if I still feel like doing this, I can run next time when all my
most electable colleagues are already in their seats, leaving me room to
receive a 100% vote mandate!

World domination and Fedora-based femmebots, here I come!!!
