First off, wow, we have a mayor as a dev :) Second the paragraph above
is kinda contradictory. In a good way, sure he isn't wearing to many
Gentoo hats. But dude sure has allot in real life. I can't say I know
dude or have heard of him. But hard to deny seconding a nomination like
that :)

So as long as nominees can second others, I second this nomination. Tom
would be a valued asset on the board of trustees.

Thanks for the nomination, not sure if he would have been otherwise. We
need more like him to be nominated. If we have people with such skills
already involved with the project. Let's just hope Tom accepts the
nomination.
