Hello Squeakers from Germany!

Can you hear me now?

I heard that you may not have received some of the messages about the Squeak
Oversight Board Election 2016 currently going on.  Below is the original
email.  You can find more information about what has gone on since then
here: http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/6346 

As a quick summary we now have 4 candidates for 7 board seats

Candidates in order of announcement:
Tim Rowledge
Marcel Taeumel
Craig Latta
Bert Freudenberg

We still need candidates.  Please feel free to nudge people you think should
run for the board or, if you have been an important part of the community,
you might consider running yourself.  

Welcome back to the mailing lists!

All the best,

Ron Teitelbaum
