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.
I'm Scott. I have been a regular participant here since 2015. I have regularly contributed to the site's review queues, and feel that I have a good understanding of the community's direction and requirements for how it wishes to entrust its moderators.
I'm Philip. I've been hanging around this site for a while now, and I hope I've got a fairly good idea for how the community works at the moment and some of the issues we face. As a moderator on another (lower traffic) site in the network, I've also got a good idea of what being a moderator involves.
