I am out of a job because the new Assembly is now in session.  Elected officials should swear in again on the swear-in thread, even if they did it last session.  Good luck to the new Assembly!

The new session should start. Those elected in the election could swear in starting Thursday.

The first thing to do for the assembly is elect a Speaker. That election is usually run by the Lieutenant Governor. I don't think that has been announced yet and the Lt Governor swear in.

For reference, this is what the SOAP on the wiki says about the Speaker's election.

Quote
At the beginning of each term of the Assembly, and at any time when the office is vacant, the first order of business of the Assembly shall be to elect the Speaker.

The Lieutenant Governor shall preside over the election, but he may neither be nominated for, nor be elected as, Speaker.  In the case of the absence of the Lieutenant Governor, the member with the longest continuous period of service shall conduct the election.

Nominations shall be open for a period of twenty-four (24) hours.  A member may nominate no more that one member.  Any member nominated must declare their acceptance of the nomination to be listed on the ballot.

At the close of nominations, if only one member has been nominated, he shall immediately be declared to have been elected.

If, however, two or more members have been nominated, an election shall immediately be held by optional preference IRV.  Only members officially nominated shall be listed on the ballot - write-in votes shall not be permitted.  The election shall conclude after a period of twenty-four (24) hours, or after all members have voted, whichever is sooner.

EDIT: Matt's going through some personal, real life issues right now, so he won't be running (so consider this kind of an LOA in his stead). I don't want to pick a Lieutenant Governor just yet because I don't want to shut someone who wants to run out of the Speakership.

Do you want me/can I open the nomination as Speaker as outgoing LG, or am I already gone?

If we're nominating for speaker - I'll nominate Blair. He seems willing to do it and it should bring stability to the Assembly.

Thanks Clyde. I accept the nomination for speaker, and would be happy to carry out the role

Since I wrote the current rules on the Speakership election I thought I'd chime in to help.

If Matt is the longest continually serving representative (as I believe he is, but correct me if I am wrong), he can preside over the election.  If he's on a LOA, then the second longest continually serving member can preside over the election.

The second longest continuing serving member would be Blair since I believe he was the only other representative serving just before the election. So I guess that would be for him to open the 24 hour nomination process for speaker (and nominate himself).

Haha it feels slightly Nixon like having to open my own election.

Since Matt has been given a LOA submitted through Governor Sawx I hereby open the nomination Process. It will last for 24 hours

Clyde has nominated me, and I accept.

Does that feel awkward, Representative Blair declares Representative Blair as Speaker Blair?  Smiley
