Congratulations to Christophe and Nataliia! It's great to see two strong
candidates join the Board soon, and I am confident of your ability to shape
the Board and strengthen our movement. We are looking forward to working
with you over the coming years.

Also many thanks to everyone else who was running and of course to Chris,
Lorenzo and Lane for facilitating these elections.

> with the final result. In the 9th round of voting the final place, after
> Christophe was elected, was between Nataliia (16.09) and Siska (9.91). We
> will be putting the full count narrative on the Chapters Wiki so that
> others can verify it if they wish.
> We would like to congratulate Christophe and Nataliia and thank everyone
