A few months ago, the chairman of the Forum Council (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ForumCouncil) stepped down. I was selected by the FC and approved by the Ubuntu Community Council to take over that position. However, we have operated since then with one fewer member than in the past. We would like to fill that position.

We (the FC) want to recommend Joe Barker (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=373057) to be added as a new member to the Forums Council. He has strong support from other Forum Council members and forum staff.

This thread was created to allow public comment on Joe's candidacy for the Forums Council before we seek final approval by the Ubuntu Community Council.
