If you wish to vote for a co-chair for Working group C, please put an X in

All before midnight EST Wednesday July 28th.

I vote for:

[ ] Kent Crispin
[ ] Jonathan Weinberger

[X] Eva Frölich

I vote for neither of Javier's two posted candidates. I believe Eva
Frölich, who was nominated within the scheduled time period, is a valid
candidate for co-chair of Work Group C and we should be allowed to vote for

My vote is cast for the "write-in" candidate, Eva Frölich

In the spirit of established online voting procedures, I urge everyone who
has already cast their vote to please reconsider, and cast a new vote for
the write-in candidate Eva Frölich. And I urge those who have chosen not to
vote or participate in the balloting to please cast a write-in ballot for
Eva Frölich.

Best wishes,

has already made some excellent voluntary contributions to the Names
Council in its efforts to develop a self-management process for the Working
Groups, and I believe she would work to help maintain/develop the consensus
process for WG-C in an open, organized, balanced and goal-oriented manner.
