Dear Jordan

Huge thanks for your stellar contribution to the OKFN board over the years.
Your hard work and legal expertise has made a significant contribution to
OKFN's ability to grow the way it has, and what's more it's been a joy
working with you.

I'm really sad to see you go, but comforted at least in part by the fact
that the Board's loss is the wider movement's gain.

All best wishes, and thanks again,
