On Stack Exchange, we believe the core moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.
History was the first site where I earned the "access to moderator tools", so it's where I first learned how much of this works. I'm currently highly active in Charcoal (2727 feedbacks and counting), and Meta Stack Exchange (25k+ rep). I consider myself a cool-headed leader, leading by example rather than fiat.
I believe that I have served the position well during my past term here, both in Meta discussions and guiding new users on the main site, as well as behind the scenes moderation. With the community's permission, I would very much like to continue.
I feel I have been of good service to this site's users as a moderator, and a good partner to the other moderators. Additionally, knowing we are losing at least one moderator this round, and some of the other drama that has happened in the last year, I feel that this site's users deserve the option to vote for as much stability for the next year as possible.
