Hi Everyone!

I wanted to remind everyone that the time is running out to announce your
candidacy for the Squeak Oversight Board.  You too can make a difference!
Have you considered running but haven't because we already have good
candidates?  All the more reason to run!  What a great group of people to
work with!  You have until Monday 22nd of January 3 PM (20.00 UTC) to run.

I've been swamped with people changing their email address on the voter
list (1 person contacted me).  I would love to be swamped with new voters
(can we get 1 new voter?)  Contact me at voters at squeak.org or directly.

Voting will start on Monday!  Please remember to look for your ballot and

The current candidates are:

Marcel Taeumel
Bert Freudenberg
Tim Rowledge
Eliot Miranda
Jecel Assumpcao Jr.
David T. Lewis
Craig Latta
Nicolas Cellier

All the best,

Ron Teitelbaum
