Will You Vote?

Voting is one of the many privileges that I have as an American citizen.  It’s a privilege that most Americans take for granted today.  My dad always used to say, “If you don’t like something, change it.”  That’s exactly what voting allows us to do.

What does voting have to do with SQL Server?  Starting on September 25th, everything.  The Professional Association of SQL Server (PASS) Board of Directors elections start that day.  There’s a great slate this year.  Congratulations to all who made it through the Nomination Committee (NomCom) and my sincere thanks to those volunteers on the NomCom for all your hard work to get us to this point.  The rest of the work is up to you, the PASS community.  Will you do your hard work to make sure we have a great Board of Directors?  Will you read about each candidate and their platform?  Will you take the time to vote?

Voting is a very personal thing and I don’t normally share this kind of thing with other people, but after personally witnessing the energy and PASSion that Allen Kinsel puts into our community, I feel I need to state publicly that he has my vote.  I have worked with Allen in the past so it is a very easy decision.  That doesn’t mean my work stops there.  There are still two more seats available and I need to do the work to make sure that I select the right candidates who will represent what is important to me.

Voting itself is easy, takes less than 5 minutes of your time, but will you do the hard work to make sure the issues that are of concern to you, as a community member, are being addressed?  I urge you to read about the candidates and their qualifications and then VOTE!  It’s your community.
