Hi all - I understand that this idea has been discussed on other currently active threads, but in my opinion, it deserves a separate thread. To an informed observer, it was pretty obvious why James was removed to begin with, and to a casual observer, I'm guessing it's become obvious. It would be unfortunate of events have soured James' relationship with other board members to the point that it would be literally unworkable to put him back on the board... but it's also become readily apparent that the community trusted community selected (and sorry, but that's a bullshit trick,) trustee James Heilman wasn't violating his fiduciary duties.
I would go as far as to say that James Heilman was the only trustee who was actively and aggressively following his fidicuiary duties, and that if Dr. James is willing to accept a reappointment to the board, one of the next three board motions that passes should be appointing James Heilman as trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation. His removal wasn't a surprise to him, he knew it was coming - but he also knew he was acting in the interests of the Wikimedia Foundation. And that's the exact kind of trustee we need. ---- Kevin Gorman _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
