10. A statement indicating your ideas, intentions and/or the
you consider you should be elected to serve in the ICANN
(no more than 500 words):
First and foremost, I will be continue to be involved in discussions
and debates so that I am fully informed on the issues; I will not hide
behind any barrier, (communications, time) nor will I ever use the
excuse that there is too much e-mail to read.
As I have done in the past with ORSC I will push for fair, open,
transparent, and accountable governance of the Internet. This
includes, but is not limited to, pushing for a true 'at-large'
membership as envisioned by MAC prior to Santiago. This membership
should be ICANNs number one priority prior to doing any substantive
Accountability means the ability of members to:
* be heard on an issue prior to a board decision
* know why a decision was taken
* know who voted for it and against it
* petition for reconsideration
* have a place to go if reconsideration is refused or unfairly handled
A second priority should be the institution of sound business
planning, driving sensible budgets, effective cost controls and other
generally accepted practices.
