I don't believe that will probably be necessary, Jon. Thanks for looking out though. XD Way to be a bro and double check first.

Just to clarify, I did not interpret your question as, in itself, a decline. Just asking whether you could. :)

That's ok, it counts. Nominations and seconds don't need to be staff.

Prior to Kit's public acceptance, she contacted me privately to accept the nomination for Director of Programming, so I had edited the nominations list accordingly.

Thanks!

Hi, Brian Mathews here.  I'm a little late, but after talking with Jessica about it over the last couple of days about plans for the upcoming year, I'd like to decline my nomination and change to "not accept."
