I thought this might be interesting to members who haven't found it on Nominet or YT:

Be great to get someone from the domain reseller background into this, although I think we at least need to get enough guys together for an election this year rather than just 2 candidates last year, thus avoiding a election.

I wouldn't stand again but hope someone would consider the position especially if we can all get behind them, plus it's about 30k a year isn't it? Personally I always hoped Andrew Bennett would stand again, don't know if he is interested.

It looks as though it's quite time-consuming, as Dickie says. I'd hazard a guess that it's pretty much a full-time job, and a bit beyond. Agree it would be good to have someone with a knowledge (not a bias) of our aspect of the business.

Great News, I see Reza is going for it http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/nominet-general-information/101328-reza-sobati-nominet-vote.html

This really is good news as there is few that could do the job as good as him and are as knowledgeable as him. Plus he really is a great guy to deal with, one of the true gentlemen of Domaining....

Reza has my full support for this candidacy. I will personally do all I can to promote him, and to ensure he gets as many votes as possible. Note that it's my personal comment - not a mandate that all members have to agree to. Hopefully we'll see some lively debate here!
