Kubuntu Council Elections 2014 - Call for Nominations

I'd like to put myself forward for the Kubuntu council again.  Over the
last two years I've worked hard to keep Kubuntu thriving despite the
stepping back of our primary sponsor.  We continue to have significant
technical and political challenges but I'm now more confident of our future
than I have been for the last couple of years.

I'm mindful that we have fewer new contributors than we have in the past
and I'd like to spend some effort over the next year to try to fix that.

Although I've been involved with Kubuntu since the start and a member of
the council since we started it nothing would make me prouder than to be
out-voted and have more fresh talent as part of it.
