Just an FYI...
I am not going to stand for re-election, given you can't see the list I thought I might make this clear. 

I have many reasons for not "going-again" but I thank everyone who voted me in for both of my terms, thank you! 

If you have the spare time, energy, passion and want to steer the ship (to some degree) the board may be worth considering. If anyone is considering and wants to ask me questions regarding running for the board please mail me directly or call me.

>> I wanted to give you an updated on OWASP releasing the candidate names for the upcoming 2014 Board of Elections.
>> All candidates were sent an email earlier this week asking if they would support OWASP releasing their candidacy prior to August 19.  Out of the 7 candidates, one replied "I am indifferent to a policy change at this point. If you opt to change the policy of releasing candidates names, I will go along with it."  and the other asked for his/her candidacy to be retracted. I have personally reached out to the remaining 5 candidates again asking for their thoughts. 
>> As of now, we will not be releasing the names until all candidates have replied, and they all need to be in favor of it.  No where is it noted that the candidates can not announce their candidacy on their own via social media, etc. prior to August 19.  
>> I am happy to reevaluate our current election model for the 2015 election.  If you would like to be a part of this discussion, please let me know.
