I would like to introduce Ankita @sudokita, from the Gathering for Open Agricultural Technology (GOAT) community, who is serving as the independent observer for the 2021 GOSH community council election. The election secretary and independent observer will be working together frequently throughout the election process, therefore Ankita and I will use this thread on the forum to talk publicly regarding the election. This will also serve as a space for reporting if needed.
I will continue to update this thread throughout the election, to which Ankita will respond with questions/concerns, or a simple yay or nay.
I will also send Ankita detailed notes from governance working group meetings so that she can raise any questions or concerns regarding what we have planned.
What Have We Discussed Already?
I have already sent Ankita information regarding the candidate nominations so that she can view the validation process for ensuring that candidates are eligible to run and vote.
