Subject: FW: [election-services] Ballot for Chair

 FYI: Apparently John's message didn't make it to the list since he was using
his old email address. We'll have to break him of that habit! ;-)

Subject: RE: [election-services] Ballot for Chair

Hello All.

I'm deeply touched by the messages of support. ( At least I think that's
what the old timer from out west in USA said!!)   But I feel I should also
apologise to all for the trouble I've caused over the recent months by my change
in circumstances.  That has now stabilised and being a freelance consultant I
can now control my own time and destiny.  As Paul intimated I have be retained
by the UK's Department for Constitutional Affairs to represent them on the TC
and it is also their fervent wish that I resume the chair, if everyone is
comfortable with that.  This promotes their continued support for EML and
e-voting in general.


Given the votes of support from colleagues have you or the OASIS rulebook got
any objections to me resuming the chair and pressing ahead with our next meeting

Wonderful news all round!  Clearly the Elections TC is just too democratic in
its own deliberations!!

Just like the Hollywood movies - if that old sheriff is back in town - I'm
voting to give him his job back - so them thur deputies can quit squabbling and
git back tur work!

Cheers, DW

To all TC Members:

  The ballot held for chair was inconclusive; that is, no candidate received the
requisite 51% to be declared the winner. The TC now has a number of options
available to it. I think consensus can most likely be reached on the list and
then we can move forward.

1) We can hold a run-off election with the top two vote-getters, or
2) One or more candidates may choose to join forces and run as chair/co-chair

  There's also a new development - John Borras is now back with the TC and is
willing to step back into the role of chair. In any case, we need to get someone
in the role of chair, and possibly co-chair, as quickly as possible so the TC
can continue to move forward with their work.

  We can either discuss on the list or arrange a teleconference - if you would
like to have an informal meeting just let me know the date/time and I'll make
sure to clear my calendar.
