+    <h1>Candidates for the GNOME Foundation 2017 Elections</h1>
+    <p>
+      Below you find the list of candidates running for the
+      GNOME Foundation Board of Directors in 2017. We encourage everyone
+      to check the candidates' full candidacy statements, and follow related 
+      discussions on <a 
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      When deciding who to vote for, please consider
+      the various tasks under the responsibility of the Board of Directors. This
+      <a href="../overview.html">overview</a> might be helpful. The board makes 
+      a number of important decisions and performs many tasks which require time,
+       effort and the ability to work and communicate with others. The Board of 
+       Directors will represent GNOME to companies and the world. It is a good idea
+        to strive for a well-balanced Board consisting of people with various backgrounds,
+      skills, and perspectives.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      Additional elections details can be found on the
+      <a href="https://foundation.gnome.org";>GNOME Foundation Web Site</a>.

+                Affiliation: <em>Red Hat</em><br />
+                Full statement at <a 
+                <blockquote>
+                I've served on the Foundation Board of Directors for two years, and would like to continue 
for 2017-18. 
+                I've enjoyed my time on the board and feel that I've had a positive impact. I played a 
non-trivial role
+                in hiring our new ED, and I've done a bunch of work around trademark licensing and keeping 
our records up to date.
+                As Vice-President for the last year, I've also helped to keep our meetings ticking along.
+                With two years of experience, I think I'm able to be a good resource for the Foundation. If 
I'm re-elected I'd like
+                to keep up with my existing work. There are also a few initiatives that I'd like to carry 
through to completion, particularly around budgeting and financial policy.

+            Affiliation: <em>None</em><br />
+            Full statement at <a 
+                <blockquote>
+                During the last term, I served as vice-secretary and if elected this
+                year I intend to run for secretary or vice-secretary. Taking and
+               publishing minutes is tedious work that nobody enjoys (that I know of)
+               but it’s something I’m good at.
+               We’ve had some issues at times publishing the minutes in time, but
+               Cosimo and I have worked on that and I believe we shouldn’t slip too
+               much from now on. I’m interested in continuing to improve the process.
+               I’ll keep using my extensive event organisation experience to follow
+               up and give insight on the various ones organised by our community,
+               and reaching out to people or outside entities to get information the
+               board needs.
+               I believe I also bring political and ethical value to the board.
+               Software freedom, privacy and Internet decentralisation are values I
+               care a lot about and I put them forward whenever a situation demands
+               it. I reckon my European mindset adds an important point of view to
+                the board as well.

+            Full statement at <a 
+                <blockquote>
+                In the past year, I have taken on secretary duties and helped manage and
+                track the Board's ongoing projects and action items. My technical background
+                has allowed me to bring that perspective to the Board, and I have also taken on
+                various initiatives to promote Flatpak within and outside of the GNOME community.
+                If elected, I would love to keep working on initiatives that leverage my technical
+                background, and finish the work I started last GUADEC to promote a set of privacy-focused

+            Affiliation: <em>Endless Mobile</em><br />
+            Full statement at <a 
+                <blockquote>
+During the last term, I served as President and Chairperson of the Board. As such, I helped run meetings 
effectively and make sure that we remained focused and efficient both in and out of meetings. I also made the 
meetings upbeat and inclusive, making sure that we leveraged all of the Board members’ areas of expertise to 
help work on the various issues we dealt with. 
+Like Allan, I also played a non-trivial role in hiring our new Executive Director and helping to research 
our ability to hire a non-US employee (previously we have only hired non-US contractors). I took the lead on 
keeping the process moving forward and maintaining communication with all parties involved. During this term, 
I also helped represent the Engagement team’s voice at Board meetings and help the Board think about how our 
policies affect our growth strategies. This resulted in beginning to change our financial policies around how 
we approve budgets for small events. 
+This first year serving on the Board was an introduction to what kinds of things the Board is usually tasked 
with and what is and isn’t possible. If elected to a second term, I’m eager to spend the next year 
proactively supporting the Project with a deeper understanding of what we can do to help. I think we can do 
some great things especially around our financial policies to help support growth, and I’m eager to carry 
that work on out.

+            Full statement at <a 
+                <blockquote>
+As you may kwnow I have been involved in the newcomers experience, community involvement and growth of the 
GNOME project.
+As an example of this work, I created the newcomers initiative (followed with invaluable help from other 
people) which involved documentation, technical work and constant daily communication with new people comming 
+I was also part of the discussions and work behind the recent research for alternatives for Bugzilla and 
cgit, with the ultimate goal of improving the prosperity of the GNOME project.
+I believe I can help the GNOME project researching new initiatives that require the board support that could 
help with the engagement of people into the GNOME project, and at the same time, help the board with being 
more proactive with such initiatives and the general growth of contributors.

+                I served on the Board of Directors this past year and would like to announce my candidacy 
for a second term.
+                During my time on the Board I have mainly focused on taking on actions as needed to keep the 
Board's day to day
+                operations running smoothly. As a volunteer contributor to the project, I think I have been 
able to provide a valuable
+                perspective. If elected, I will continue to work to support initiatives in the community 
that promote inclusivity and software freedom.

+               I've been a GNOME user for about 17 years, a developer for 10 (more if

+               I'd like to now contribute in a non-technical capacity as well and
