Hi Jersey! Welcome to the Assembly.

Thanks man!  Wink

Should I be sworn in or is that only for assemblymen serving full terms?

Well we can't reappoint Belgiansocialist even though he has done a good job. It would only interfere with the Liberal powergrab.

Never fear, Mr. President. I am sure that Senator Scott will fill the position with some Liberal patsy who owes his entire career to our cadre.

In all seriousness: Belgian has done a fine job as CJO. If his term were to expire during my time as Governor, I would re-appoint him.

Mwahahaha...

Yeah, I think Belgian's done an all right job since the Tweed debacle.  I just wanted to make sure we're on schedule with everything.

I hereby submit the Aerospace Commission Act of 2012, which will:
- create a 5-member board, appointed by the NE governor and subject to confirmation by the NE legislature
- eliminate sales and property taxes on any aerospace corporation based in the NE
- give incentive in the form of tax credits and grants to any corporation achieving certain goals established by the board within a certain amount of time, (ex. Launching a solar-sail powered spacecraft by 2015, landing on Mars by 2026, creating an ultra lightweight solar panel which can be used to power a solar sail, etc), all of which must be approved by a majority of the legislature and the governor

Thanks man Wink.  I guess this must be since I've left; a lot happens in six months.

You can catch up on what's happened over the past three sessions here.

For updated rules on Assembly procedure, you can read the new SOAP, adopted shortly after you last left office, here.

And this is where my job gets hard.

In the space of a few months, we have lost almost all of the old contingent of our Assembly. I've only been at this for two or three months, and I'm the most senior Representative. There appears to be a lack of active voters and active candidates in the region, as evidenced by our recent election in which we all know the highest vote total anyone received was three. I think we need to procure an active voter base, which I believe will lift our region up. How we can do that, however, I don't really know. But I do know that we're going to have to work for it.

Also, y'all should debate and vote on our bills. That goes double for you, Funky.

I've just noticed that Comrade Funk has missed three consecutive votes (The Capital Act of 2012, The Fair Property Tax and Homeowner Relief Initiative, & The Education Act). Does this mean his seat is now vacant?

Should I assume that Alfred will be taking over as Governor until Nix returns?  We need someone to open the NE voting booth on the ERA.

EDIT: Wait, I just remembered that Goldwater is our LtG, not Alfred...

He should be, yes, but for now I am. I'll open the vote soon.

Both had equally valid claims to the position under our current election laws. Without realizing that, I certified Alfred the winner. Assuming that the people pass our elections amendment in the next regional election, the region will avoid this kind of confusion in the future.

Jersey has missed two votes in a row.

I can't keep all these vacancies straight! Maybe after the special election we'll get some stability.

It's close to being vacant.

I must say, if we lose a total of three Representatives this session due to failure to stay active, that can't look good for our region.

I'm not surprised; turnout in the most recent election was dismal. Under these circumstances, it becomes easy for elected officials to lose their sense of responsibility. I hope that this weekend's competitive special election will see greater voter participation.
