  It would be awesome of we had at least one candidate from each

Not that it's necessary, but I would also like to support Daniel's 
nomination. I've had the pleasure of working with Daniel as well and 
agree wholeheartedly with Mark  Arnulf.

Dear OSGeo Community, Charter Members,
I want to nominate Daniel Morissette for the OSGeo board of directors.

I have been working with Daniel for many years and he is one of the most 
trustworthy and consistently productive people I know. He has always proven to 
be highly sensitive to community related aspects and has an international 
outlook, combined with very good English skills. This makes him a good mediator 
between different regions and cultures, a regularly upcoming issue in our 
community. This would already make him an invaluable member of the board of 
directors. But this is not enough, on top of this he also tends to the irksome 
job of treasurer and has toiled through many down-to-earth tasks that an 
organization of our size requires to get done. He is also an integral part of 
the Franco-Canadian local community and a relentless contributor to the 
MapServer project.

It would be silly to not squeeze some more out of him if he so friendly asks 
for it.

Thank you,
Arnulf
