    $\begingroup$ Congratulations are well deserved all around. I do want to thank everyone who participated and stuck through to the end--especially @Gavin Simpson and EpiGrad--for making this a real election, giving people a choice, and by using it as a constructive opportunity to suggest how our site can be improved and strengthened. I hope and trust all four of you, regardless of this election's outcome, will continue to interact with our community as thoughtfully, positively, and actively as you have in the past. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Thank you to @Gavin and @EpiGrad for all that you contributed to the election and your very thoughtful comments and viewpoints. I can sincerely say that I would have not been the least bit disappointed if the election results had been inverted! I hope you will continue to contribute to improving our site. Thank you to everyone who participated, too: proposing questions, requesting clarifications and voting. Without you there would not have been a proper election and there would be no site! Cheers.` $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Congratulations and good luck to both. Peter and cardinal look perfect and balanced complementarity. I perceive Peter as an extremely experienced data analyst (mostly) and cardinal as a strong austere math statistician (mostly). But the other two guys are worthy too. $\endgroup$
