The voting process for the position of Lawspeaker has now concluded. We were incredibly lucky to have three amazing candidates step forward and make the decision incredibly difficult (in a good way), and I want to thank all three--Duchess Adrielle, THL Emer, and Dame Siglinde--for their willingness to serve the people of this kingdom in this capacity.
The people have spoken, and your new Lawspeaker will be Dame Siglinde. She and I will be working in the next month to transition the role, and I anticipate she will formally take the reins in May.
It has been my great privilege to be given the opportunity to serve the Kingdom in this unique position these past three years. I particularly want to thank Baroness Sciath, who served as my moot secretary, as well as the Royalty and Seneschals I worked with in those years, through both calm and stormy days. In particular, I'd like to acknowledge the counsel and assistance of those Lawspeakers who have gone before me, and to offer that same assistance to all who will follow me.
