Vote for Mr. LaRock

September 29, 2009 at 10:21 am (PASS) (, , , )


It is rapidly coming up on election time at the Professional Association of SQL Server users (PASS). Once more, a person I respect and admire is running for office. Tom LaRock has been a volunteer with the organization longer than I have (I’m approaching four years) and for the entire time I’ve been involved he’s been in the thick of things, working for the organization and working with the other volunteers. He does great work. He’s presented at the Summit, three times I think, and he’s presenting again this year. He’s one of the people chiefly responsible for the new Virtual Chapters. He’s been serving on the Board as an appointee. I think it’s finally time to make it official and elect this great guy to the board. He’ll do a good job, as he has done, and he’ll be able to do more because, rather than worrying about running for office, again, he can strap in & work hard for two years if he gets elected.

Tom’s going to be hosting live chats where he’s going to answer your questions about his plans for his time on the board. If you have any doubts that he’s the right guy (and he is) or you don’t know Tom, get on over there and listen to what he has to say.

To see the other candidates (not a slouch in the bunch, but I’m backing Tom), go on over to the campaign space and see what they have to say for themselves.

    You’ve earned ’em. Can we break your Susan Lucci pattern this year though? I think it’s time.
