Kubuntu Council Elections 2015 - Call for Nominations

I have loved being on the Council for the past two years, and nominate
myself for another term. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ValorieZimmerman

One of the useful things *everyone* can do, if you use IRC, is to hang
out in #kubuntu and help distressed users when you can. All of us have
some expertise; that is a great place to use it.

The Kubuntu-user list and Kubuntu-forums are also places where help is
needed; as well as the KDE and Ubuntu forums.

Also, if you are not yet a Kubuntu Member, please consider applying to
become a Member. Not only will you be able to vote for your Council,
but there are numerous other benefits. See
https://community.kde.org/Kubuntu/Membership for details. Make
yourself a wiki page and start collecting information there. Ask for
testimonials when you are ready to apply.

All the best,

If you have a public email address in Launchpad, you need take no further action to receive your voting ballot.  If you do not have a public email address, please contact me offlist with the address you'd like your ballot sent to, otherwise you will be unable to vote.
> Nominations:
> All Kubuntu members are eligible.  The Kubuntu Council is intended to represent all of the Kubuntu community.  Applications from involved non- developers are encouraged.  If you are nominating someone else, please confirm their willingness to serve before nominating them.  Nominations should be done in public via either kubuntu-users or kubuntu-devel mailing lists.  If there is some extraordinary reason that precludes that, contact me directly.
> Commitment:
> The Kubuntu Council is the leadership body of Kubuntu.  Members of the council are expected to be active in Kubuntu.  The Kubuntu Council has three primary roles:
>  - Approve development plans for future Kubuntu releases
>  - Approve Kubuntu membership applications
>  - Resolve disputes within the Kubuntu project
> The time commitment is not large.  Meetings are generally only once every several months and conducted via IRC.
> Questions:
> If there are questions, you can contact me (preferably) via this mailing list or (if really necessary) via direct mail.  I can also be found on Freenode IRC in #kubuntu or #kubuntu-devel, nickname: Etriaph
