I think next time around the Council candidates should provide a bio of what they've done *for Jabber*, what they intend *to do with Jabber* and whose views they represent. I think it's perfectly fine if corporations want to have a particular individual represent their views. Just *say it in the bio* - that's all I ask.

I wasn't really pleased with the bios that were there...

Hoping for a better election next time,

Julian
