If could vote for him twice, I would. I have personally witnessed his dedication to wormhole space, tirelessly compiling data to present to CCP about wormhole income that directly resulted in positive changes to wormholes. He is a workhorse for the players, wormhole or otherwise, and deserves a second election.
Hard to imagine that she could exceed my expectations of her when she ran for her first election, but somehow she managed. The low-sec equivalent to corbexx's wormhole passion, she brings a dedication and determination to the CSM that we can only hope is shown by all the members.
Steve is the voice of 3rd party developers and industrialists, bringing an analytical mind to bear on many issues. As a developer himself, he brings a great perspective to the CSM process bridging the gap between the players and CCP in a very unique and valuable way.
Vote or not, Sion is probably a lock to return to the CSM. Wildly outspoken about the CSM recently, I can support him on the position that he obviously cares deeply about the CSM and the process and can only be seen then as a passionate representative and voice that needs to be present.
Another incumbent member of CSM 9. While I had little in terms of direct experience or interaction with him, his drama-free performance on the CSM and experience is enough for me to recommend he continue. A strong CSM will require a good transition between CSM 9 and CSM X and having corebloodbrothers will go a long way towards that goal.
A late addition to CSM 9 due to the musical chairs that affected it, he jumped in mid stream and served well. A good companion to Sugar Kyle representing low-sec and small gang players.
Rounding out the incumbents, Mike also served as a solid and dedicated member of CSM 9 that rightfully deserves a return to the council. While his focus is on casual players and high-sec, he has proven to be a valuable resource representing EVE players.
Host of notable podcasts, Hydrostatic and High Drag, Ashterothi, while not an incumbant candidate, has an obvious love of the game coupled with a no nonsense attitude that I believe will translate into a solid CSM member. His passion for lore and new players will be welcome on the council.
Null-sec candidate with a strong view on the upcoming sov changes. His thoughts on the subject are deeply held and well reasoned. A valuable voice to have considering the seriousness of the upcoming changes.
Well known in the EVE community for running Spectre Fleet, a NPSI organizations, Jayne brings a valuable community focused position to the table and should be an excellent new addition to the CSM.
CEO of Noir. Training Academy, a strong voice for mercenary groups. He will bring another unique view to EVE along with experience to back it up.
Personal bias here, but Dom is a player that I've flown with and have directly interacted with in EVE. A solid person with reasonable views on a wide range of aspects of EVE, he is certainly a long-shot for the CSM being that he is not part of any large voting block, alliance, or group. I would have to say that if you are looking to vote for one of the many new or unknown candidates, DomanarK would be a fine candidate for your ballot.
The final two slots for my ballot will go as follows though I don't have a strong opinion on them. They are, however, a step above the endless stream of candidates and worthy of consideration
