Board election: Introduction Hubat McJuhes
I was born and grew up in western Germany before I came to New Zealand in 2005. I am married and have two children (4 and 7 years old).
I have been following the rise of the Pirate Party in Sweden, Germany and Tunesia and joined PPNZ in it's very early stages.
Despite finding solutions to the immediate troubles (lack of members, money and infrastructure), I believe the next most important issue that needs to be resolved in this board's period is to create a new Constitution for the party to flourish. I have expressed my views about how a new constitution could and should look like in many discussions already. In essence it should express the core values the party stands for as well as the deliberation process (think: kernel). The latter is where we can set ourselves apart from any other party around - if we manage to design a radical and genuine grass-root driven architecture, making 'power to the people' a reality (at least for the realm of our own domain). Using the internet as the collaboration platform for distributed decision making and, in doing so, exercising our natively digital lifestyle, can convince like minded people to join in, where other parties cannot attract due to their established but dull top-down nature.
Today I kindly ask you to support me in working towards these aims and vote for me in the current board elections as an additional board member.
LET THERE BE (grass)ROOT!
