HI Evan and others,

Since the field for electing our ALAC representatives is competitive this year I 
think we need to open all these positions to elections including the one that 
Glenn is vacating in October.  If he was vacating it earlier than October than 
that would be a different story. Than I would agree to waiving the nomination 
period and having this election prior to the others, but since he is leaving 
after finishing one year of a two year term, early elections are not needed.  
Also since there is plenty of competition I think we need to stick with the 
process and have elections for both positions and for these to take place at the 
same time. There is no need for early elections as Glenn is not leaving until 
after Dublin.  In the past, we have gotten complaints for not following process 
when we have not had elections.
