Election results: The next main community organizer, elected by members, starting June 15th 2012 is Fitz Ryland.
The coordinating council members starting June 15th 2012 are: Dietrich Ayala, Emanuel Costache, Jim Blandy, Sam Balter. (With 4 nominees for 4 council positions, all 4 are elected without voting.) We have many other ways for members to be involved, especially the Tuesday civics meetings, Lightning Talks, going to lunch, and other activities.
Thanks to our election structure team, led by Molly Danielsson and Jeffrey Sens, with oversight by Tom Boeker. Robby Kraft did the mathematics on the preferential voting.

I hope that more than one of these candidates is elected over time here, and I hope that they do work and grow together somehow: “Collective Agency” is literally our ability to act together.
I know that the Coordinating Council nominees: Dietrich, Emanuel, Jim, Sam, will assist in good governance through the knowledge that Council members gain over time, and that members overall will continue to grow their involvement, relationships, and bring in results together.
I am thankful to be a member here.”
