We had our first Meet the Candidates session yesterday and spoke with four of our thirteen candidates. Normally, I would link to the audio recording of that call, but due to user error <hangs head in shame> the audio is gone. However, thanks to the amazing kattekrab, we do have a pretty remarkable transcript from the session. Following is an introduction to the four candidates and our question and answer session with them.
Remember! We have one more Meet the Candidate Session:

Drupal is a community project and has board members that are elected by the community. 13 candidates have put themselves forward for consideration of 2 slots, and it looks like our very own Matthew Tift has stepped forward.
The candidates are listed at https://association.drupal.org/election/3/candidates and there are times to meet all the candidates posted at https://association.drupal.org/node/18443. I was looking through them when I spotted our very own Matthew Tift as one of the candidates: https://association.drupal.org/election-candidate/68.Read more
