I think that the large number of candidates is quite a healthy sign, myself. Clearly we have quite a number of people who: a) believe that there are issues they can help with b) are prepared to commit to working on those issues. Of course, (a) could also be taken as a sign that there are _too many_ issues, but I expect that we'll have quite a large overlap in the issues that candidates have identified. >2.

If I am elected, then _right now_ I would expect to stand again for re-election next year. Comparison of my stated goals for this term and what actually gets achieved would obviously be a major part of that decision. -- Steve McIntyre, Cambridge, UK. firstname.lastname@example.org Armed with "Valor": "Centurion" represents quality of Discipline, Honor, Integrity and Loyalty.
