I do not see how the Governor can support me for Speaker since he disaproves of my performance as a Representative, and I do not see how Representative Jones can support me for Speaker since he wants me banned from the forum, which would obviously make it impossible for me to become Speaker, or anything else in this fantasy government. 

You're the next-most-senior Representative, are you not? My request to ban you is solely based on your actions beyond the fourth wall, which I intend to keep standing.

I'm not sure I'm ready for all this speakery responsibility, but if I must, I'll do it.

Representative Jones, just what do you mean by "my actions"?

To be honest, I have never heard so much whining from so many malcontents in my entire life than that group of moaners, groaners, and complainers who were acting like six year olds and demanding I be banned from the forum.  There was obviously nothing wrong with "my actions," the ultimate proof being I am still on the forum.

I was somewhat disappointed, however, to see you join in that chorus of clowns.

Really, Winfield? This is the regional government.

We can now vote.

NORTHEAST SPEAKER

Voting will last 24 hours or until all members have voted.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

Technically, the time expired, but Simfan is not here at the moment, so let's just anoint Winfield as Speaker.

*confetti*.

I am pleased to announce that Winfield has been elected Speaker. The Keystone Phil legacy lives on. I am also pleased to announce I have arrived in Nyman just a few hours ago and am resting at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. (Really.) I am also pleased I am able to conduct the Assembly's affairs remotely before I depart for Addis Ababa on Monday.

As Speaker Simfan's resignation as Speaker takes place August 6, 2012, that is when I will assume the office of Speaker.

Thank you to the President, Assembly members, the Governor, and all the others who have voiced their support.

I did not participate in the vote as I felt it appropriate that this decision be left up to the other members of the Assembly.

Well I thought it would work the other way around for this one. Tongue

President Napoleon has forwarded me an interesting idea for tax legislation for the region.

Quote
Fair Property Tax and Homeowner Relief Initiative

After 31 December 2012, property tax on real estate shall be assessed without taking into consideration the value of any improvements built upon it. This initiative shall not be interpreted as requiring that factors other than total area such as location, grade, water or mineral rights, etc. not be considered on determining the assessed value of the land for purposes of property tax.

I believe that this idea has merit and the assembly should consider revisions to the tax code. The above initiative would spur job creation by encouraging improvements to existing real estate.

I introduced a land value tax in the most recent budget. A land value tax is a tax on the unimproved value of land.The Northeast has no real property tax.


There is at the local level, I believe.

Ah, yes, I remember that now.

I thought the legislative session had closed since we were told no more bills could be brought forward.

Since the elections begin this Friday, I felt it prudent not to bring forward any new bills, as debate time would be too limited to do justice to any piece of proposed legislation. 

It is better that the new members of the Assembly deal with any legislation beyond the Job Creation and Infrastructure Renewal Act and the Safe Walking Act.

But you are certainly free to discuss any matters of concern to you in this, the Northeast Assembly Thread, in preparation for the new Assembly to be elected this weekend.
