Hey Andrew!

That is great news! Congratulations from Austria :)

I wish you the best of luck for the coming elections. Don't be too 
disappointed when it doesn't work out at the first attempt, good things 
sometimes take time :) The most important thing for a party are people 
who are commited, who are able to lead the party through difficult 
times. I'm board member of the pirate party Austria (= a nice but quite 
conservative country) since almost three years, so I know what I'm 
talking of ;)

Anyway, I wish you successful elections nevertheless!

Greetings from Vienna

Max Lalouschek
