    I hereby nominate Sandhya Viswanathan (sviswanathan) to JDK Committer.
    Sandhya is a long-term member of the Java team at Intel from the time when we start collaboration with Intel.
    She contributed (and participated in) 14 OpenJDK changesets from which 8 are significant [3]. And she contributed when 
    Intel was not part of OpenJDK - it is not listed here. Her work concentrated on x86 code generation, vectorization and 
    intrinsics for modern Intel CPUs.
    Votes are due by 11:00 AM PDT, Wednesday December 19, 2019.
    Only current JDK 9 Committers [1] are eligible to vote on this nomination.  Votes must be cast in the open by replying
