We, the Election Officers, hereby give notice of the results of the 2006 Board of Trustees election. The winner is Erik Möller, also known as "Eloquence" or "Xirzon". Assuming that the Board endorses the result and appoints Möller, he will replace Angela Beesley, who chose to resign earlier this year. The term to which Möller will be appointed will cover the rest of the term for which Beesley was elected, and will end with the ordinary 2007 election.
