We are now approaching 2 weeks since the open letter to the Chairman
of the WMF board. There has been no formal response, nor any
commitment to take action. Consequently a simple open and public vote
of confidence for Geshuri's appointment has been created.
Please vote or add your comment there.

Dear Patricio Lorente,
I request that the WMF board take immediate action to publish a
comprehensive account of why you appointed Geshuri as a trustee,

on-going scandal of anticompetitive agreements at Google, or that
Geshuri chooses to step down from his new position of trust.

of confidence in their senior management and the politicking behind
the loss of James Heilman as a trustee openly advocating for
transparency to the actions of the WMF board, Geshuri's background

board with regard to their duty to hold WMF senior management to
account and acting with the highest possible accountability and public
