I will make an assumption (and forgive me if I'm wrong) that both 
candidates with 0 edits are female.  I am basing this only on names and 
a rudimentary internet search.

I think before both candidates answer that question - you need to define 
why they have a "complete lack of OpenStreetMap experience". They have 
made edits. Were last years edits not good? Were the other edits from 
other candidates better? How many edits make an experienced mapper? Non 
US edits are a bad thing when running for a OSM US Position?

If they had only made 59 edits this year.........
