2010 PASS Board Candidates: Andy Warren

Introduction

The PASS Board presents the following candidates for the 2010 Election:

The links above are interviews I conducted with the candidates earlier and to the candidates individual pages at the PASS Elections portal.

I asked a single follow-up question to each candidate: "If elected, what will you change (if anything) about the current Elections process?"

Andy Warren's Response

First, I think we need to convene a committee with a range of voices – some from the most recent NomCom, previous board members, previous excluded candidates, and a variety of people from the community. I believe the first thing to decide is whether or to what degree to filter candidates. I believe some filtering is appropriate and we need to set levels for that, but in general I am in favor of a light filter that then gives the community the right to vet and decide on the final nominees. I also think there would be a lot of value in putting in an alternate path to the slate; a community nominee chosen based on the highest number of write in votes received. That would give the community a way to totally bypass the NomCom to get their candidate on the slate, and then the community could vet the slate and vote. That’s a really quick overview of my ideas, but in the end we need a process that is clear, consistent, and trusted by our members. I think we can get there, and I think we should get it done this year.
