Top 10 Reasons to Elect Tim General Convention Deputy

Well, we just took the vote for General Convention Deputy at the Massachusetts Diocesan Convention. I decided to run this year as I recently noted in a post titled In the Running. Of course, the results won't be announced until tomorrow after lunch (how am I supposed to sleep tonight?!).

Seven people ran and the top four vote-getters are elected to serve at the Episcopal Church's triennial national convention. All four "incumbents" are running for reelection so the odds aren't great. But again, this is why I decided to run -- to get some fresh voices into the national conversation when it comes to the future of the Episcopal Church.

I guess this is too late at this point -- it wasn't clear when in the agenda the voting was going to take place -- but here's why I should be elected!
