Parenting's first moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the new moderator is:


They'll be joining the existing crew shortly — please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ropes!

As you might recall, this is a special pro tempore moderator election, which means Joe will need to run for re-election along with the rest of the moderators in the event this site graduates.

Please join me in thanking Erica who is stepping down at this time. She's been a wonderful addition to the team and I hope she'll continue to be a part of this site for years to come.

For details on how the voting played out, you can download the election results here, or view a summary report online.
