The voters have spoken and I will not be returning to the PASS board as an elected director in 2013.  A week ago I wrote a post about campaigning being hard and in it I wrote something that I believe and keep coming back to.

I’ve spent many thousands of hours of my life serving the PASS organization and want the opportunity to spend a few hundred thousand more in the same role over the next two years. However, if by chance the community wants to see someone else in my seat on the board I can live with that, there aren’t any bad choices.

As much time and energy as I’ve put into PASS over the years this outcome stung a bit personally but I’ve come to accept the reality of it.  Thanks to everyone who supported me in this election cycle, I was truly humbled to receive your support.

Congrats to JRJ, Sri and Wendy.  I’m sure yall will do a great job keeping the organization moving forward on the right track.
