Dear Technical Oversight Committee,
On June 3, 2021, the term<> for two of the three current Security TAG co-chairs, Sarah Allen (@ultrasaurus<>) and Jeyappragash JJ (@pragashj<>) comes to an end.

The TOC election process<> requires nomination from TOC and then ⅔ vote. We have also followed the Security TAG governance process for proposing candidates, since <> we have clear successors who are already working within the group. <> The candidates below have unanimous support from our TOC liaisons, as well as the three current co-chairs.

We believe that Aradhna Chetal and Brandon Lum, along with current chair Emily Fox, will enable “full coverage of the leadership capabilities across the key qualities of industry experience, hands-on cloud-native and security experience, as well as administrative experience needed to run a Security TAG.” While both currently serve as Tech Leads for the group (as did Emily before she became chair), we do not consider that a prerequisite for the chair position.
