There are two different problems:
Why people don't want or don't care be a candidate?
Right now, there are only one candidate , not enough to fill the seats
we need change.
The second point is related to what you say about your proposal.
Reading again the log from 2014-10-07 
the last action proposed was contact you with Luke.
I think Walter couldn't contact Luke, and nothing moved after that,
in part because we was dumped with GCI work.
I don't see newer logs/minutes here ,
but the links to latest meetings are here:
