I just got my preliminary MAC ballot in the mail, and I wanted to give out the information for who I will definitely vote for in this initial “eligibility” round. If all goes well, myself and my talented friends will have a MAC nomination to announce soon. I am referencing only those eligible who I have performance connections with – I will also be voting for other talented people on the ballot, but you’ll have to make judgment yourself 😉
