Thank you to everyone who voted for me, I'm very proud to be able to serve a second term and quite happy to see some familiar faces will be serving with me.

I will say that I cannot picture TB without Bruce, he was a great President and he'll be sorely missed.

Congratulations to all who were elected for the upcoming term. I look forward to working with all of you...

...and thank you to every candidate who ran for election — whether or not you were elected.

Sincere condolences to those elected. And congratulations to those who were not.

No, seriously. It's a thankless but difficult job.

Good luck! I look forward to throwing beer from the peanut gallery.

I should have included this in the first post. Bad on me for failing to thank kokonutz for four excellent years on Talkboard. He has termed out and will be leaving the board, and has my gratitude for his work on our behalf.

bdschobel, Talkboard President, has also worked hard and will be leaving the board.

Thanks to everyone who was willing to volunteer, and we need more of you next time! The results show that when it comes to TalkBoard, your individual votes really count! Each of you was roughly 0.5% of the electorate!!

While I'm happy to be re-elected & again serve FT, I am bummed ( bummed means sorry for the int'l folk who don't know what bummed means or if it has a dif meaning) that we only had 5 spaces because I think we had 8 great candidates and it would have been a total privilege to serve with them all.

I look forward to serving again w/ those who have been elected, and I hope that those who ran this year will consider running again next year because I think you would add much to TB.

I also want to extend my thanks to kokonutz & bdschobel for their service on TB. Now they get to relax.

For those who are Omni-enabled, this is more important than elections...

It gets back to we are a "community". 'Nuf said.

Cheers. Sharon

Wow, that's a really low count. Lowest count ever?

Congratulations, and ditto!

I applaud everyone who ran. That takes a certain amount of courage in its own right.

To those who won, well done!
