Congratulations Maria, Dariusz, and James - I am sure you will do a great job for the movement over the next few years!
I am proud and grateful to have had the support of 2,002 people, particularly because this is a palindrome. :) And thank you to all the other candidates, the elections committee and the staff involved for making the election happen!
