Thank you, Darlene.

I wish to stand for re-election as ALAC representative for the North
American Region.

I have a very visible track record within ICANN, having served for two
years as Vice-Chair of ALAC after serving for two years as NARALO's first

I believe I have represented the region well, with a combination of
optimism and caution (dare I say cynicism) that I believe generally
reflects the conflicted view of Internet end-users towards ICANN. I believe
I have played a part in At-Large's growing confidence and respect within
ICANN, notably in improving working relationships with the ICANN Board and
Governmental Advisory Committee, as well as the production of clear,
thoughtful policy advice on a range of issues. I speak my mind when I
encounter wrongs, and attempt to make decisions that are accountable and
justified on what is best for the At-Large community. I believe in open and
constructive engagement, having created the NARALO and later the At-Large
Skype chat areas as well as creating innovative proposals for At-Large end
user outreach.

I hope I can again gain the support of the region to continue this work,
and especially to move forward the conversation on necessary ICANN reforms
being advanced by the Future Challenges Working Group which I co-founded
and co-chair. In addition I will continue my ongoing work to further embed
end-user needs and concerns into ICANN's corporate core, and to ensure that
the issues that matter to the North American region are well represented at
