I’m running for the position of Treasurer, but you don’t need to vote for me since I’m running unopposed.
I’m running on a common platform with a group of other like minded individuals. You can find the details of the platform here.
The main reason I’m running is I believe that Linux Australia can achieve so much more than it does today. Linux Australia should not simply be a conduit for linux.conf.au.
I want to help turn Linux Australia into an organisation that is relevant to all of us. It should be an organisation that not only fosters and supports the community but also represents the community.
We should offer supportive services to our members, spread the FOSS message through the community as well as actively lobby government for the things we believe in.
Most importantly it is essential that we all become involved. The community is nothing without people to move it forwards. So I would encourage you to vote for
President James Turnbull
Vice President Lindsay Holmwood
