Council Election - Campaign phase

Greetings Reps!

I'm  excited to announce that we have 7 candidates for the forth cycle 
of  the Council elections, *scheduled for October 18th.* The Council has 
carefully reviewed the candidates and agrees that they are all 
extremely  strong candidates to represent the Mozilla Reps program and  
the  interests of  Reps.

The candidates are:

  * Majken Connor <>.

  * Robert "Bob" Reyes <>

  * Ankit Gadgil <>

  * San Emmanuel James <>

  * Rami Khader <>

  * Luis A. Sánchez <>

  * Irayani Queencyputri (Rara) <>

Now, it is up to Reps to elect the candidates to fill the four available 
seats for a 12-month term [1].

As  detailed in the wiki [2], we are now entering the "campaign" phase 
of   this election cycle. This means that for the next 7 days, 
candidates   will all have an opportunity to communicate their agenda, 
plans, achievements as a Rep/Mentor, and personal strengths, to the 
Mozilla   Reps voting body. They are encouraged to use their personal 
Mozilla  Reps   profile page, their personal website/blog, Mozilla wiki 
page or  any  other  channel that they see fit to post information 
regarding  your  candidacy.

To  guide them in this effort, the Council has prepared 6 questions 
that   each candidate is asked to answer. We had originally wanted to 
have   candidates go through mozmoderator but due lack of time we will 
do this next election cycle. The questions are the  following:

  *   What are the top three issues that you would want the Council to
    address were you to join the Council?

  *   What is in your view the Mozilla Reps program's biggest strength
    and weakness?

  *   Identify something that is currently not working well in the
    Mozilla Reps program and which you think could be easy to fix?

  *   What past achievement as a Rep or Mentor are you most proud of?

  *   What are the specific qualities and skills that you have that you
    think will help you be an effective Council member?

  *   As a Mentor, what do you do to try to encourage your inactive
    Mentees to be active again?

In  the spirit of innovation and to help bring a human face to the   
election  process, the Council would like to add a new element to the   
campaign: video [3]. This video is optional, but we strongly encourage 
candidates to create one.

That's it for now. As always, if you have any questions, please don't  
hesitate to ask the Council at

I'll be giving regular election updates throughout these next two weeks 
so stay tuned!

And remember, *campaigning ends and voting starts on October 18th!*
