BGE elections — The results

Finally! We're excited the time has finally come for us to share the results of the recent BGE Working Group elections. After our call for nominations, and Dale and Tibor's engaging presentation at Barista Camp, we were overwhelmed with the quantity and quality of applicants. A total of 15 people put themselves forward for up to 2 of 6 available roles within the working group - and you can still read their manifestos here.
The actual elections ran over the course of 2 weeks, through an online survey, sent to the entire BGE membership. 70 valid votes were counted, and below overview indicates the results.
