Thanks for posting the update Bruce.
For thous interested in finding out more about who is running check out this cool software:

https://bitcoin.consider.it/

I had lunch with one of the developers in Seattle a year or so ago. Great guy, and a great tool for making the BF elections more transparent.

to b honest, when it comes to the whole bitcoin foundation instead of showing off people work history before bitcoin. i think what is needed is for all the guys to state what they are actually going to do without fail in the next year.

cos so far when it comes to thinking about bitcoin foundation people seem to quote janet jackson ... "what have you done for me lately"

To be fair, some of the candidates have been actively sending messages or posting at the BF forums about their plans. It's something I would like to see more of also.

Thanks Franky -- are you saying what we will intend to do in the next year regarding the Bitcoin Foundation if elected?

There are a couple resources with info such as this Reddit AMA http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2qqsnh/hi_reddit_rbitcoin_im_bruce_fenton_running_for/

For specifics to your question --

As a board member I'd vote in support of the current plans around core development -- I'd also encourage more decentralization and member engagement.

I'd also continue to fight regulators who are our enemy and educate those who can be.

It's importsnt to note that board members can only vote -- so be cautious of those who say things like "I would XYZ -- nothing is guaranteed unless the majority of board members voted for it.
