Hi John,

I think the number of petitions is too high, zero sounds good to me.

But then I'm jaded because I don't believe the NomCom should have the right to exclude qualified candidates at all.

In RIPE, it takes 5 members to nominate, and there are no rejections to be petitioned.

Candidates declare that they haven't committed fraud or financial misconduct and will abide by the published Code of Conduct.

No cigar-filled rooms.

 I admit my perspective may be jaded by the fact that I oppose the entire concept of service members,
 you must disenfranchise voters at the ballot box, I don’t think that disenfranchisement needs to preclude
 from the nominating or petition process.

Presently it is only general members that are allowed to make nominations or support petitions - we have bylaw language that makes it so, and those who want to participate in ARIN governance should avail themselves of the ability to become general members –
 doubly so if they believe that may wish to make a nomination or participate in a petition. 

 I still think that the petition threshold is higher than it should be. Frankly, I’d be fine with a flat 30 signatories
 30 different individuals representing 30 separate member organizations as a valid petition threshold.

We cannot penalize organizations that happen to have the same individual as voting contact (by not allowing their ballot to be counted as support of a petitioner), so it would be more useful to understand the lowest reasonable petition threshold under
 such circumstances – do you feel that the value 100 as specified in the proposed bylaw change is too high?
