Woohoo, a campaign logo! That's very kind. I was lacking a logo and sign. I had no designer on my team. I will put it in my signature.

You, voters of the Northeast, have to elect a representative. Before you cast your ballot I ask you to think if it's better to send an independent to the assembly or someone from a party representing the majority of representatives. I believe an independent voice would bring more political diversity.

Some could say I lack the political experience. To them I say we always need to start somewhere and remember this is a special election. Another election will come in a short time. The rest of this term is an ideal period to give me a chance. I'm asking you to "take a chance on me".

Thank you kindly for your time.

I know this might seem a little late, Poirot, but I would like to ask you a question:

What is your opinion on The Medical Research Act that's currently being debated in the assembly?

Here is my opinion on the medical research act.

I agree on the need for pharmaceutical companies to be registered, that needs to be done for health and safety issue at least.

I think it's true pharmas spend a lot on marketing and lobbying. Taking prescription drugs should be a medical decision and not a sales job.

I cannot agree on deciding the areas of research for the companies. Maybe some areas will never be profitable or would needs decades to discover something, and a panel would be responsible for this (not the companies themselves).

This is a complex issue and I don't think there is an easy solution. Some thoughts I have on this topic.

To help some specific areas of research we could fund university research centers for them to work in those areas.

On the commercialization side, we could limit direct marketing of drugs to people like some countries do. (perhaps less adequate at regional level) In return we could give longer patent protection for new drugs. Also maybe we could look at working with doctors to make sure their code of ethics protect them from being too influenced by the companies.

I hope I have answered your question.

I congratulate Representative Barnes for his special election win.

The result was not a big surprise since a poll righlty predicted the final result.

I want to thank the visitors to my campaign thread, people who had words of encouragement, supporters, and voters; voters who decided to give me their trust and also all others who showed up to vote and exercise their democratic right. I am proud of having offered voters a choice. As a super wisdom person said: It's not really an election if there is only one candidate. And I can say I had the three most important things in a campaign: logo, song, and free food. Smiley

Thank you kindly.

You ran a great campaign and should be proud. It's always a bit more difficult to gain traction as an independent - especially if regions that traditionally lean one way predominantly - and yet you took on the challenge. I'm sure you'll have a great future in Atlasia.

To some extent, Griffin was in many ways elected as a War time President because he viewed, not as the guy you want a beer with, but the guy you would go to a bar fight with.

Some nice comments there!

All the credit for the logo goes to wolfentoad66.
I'm grateful to him. I didn't expect someone would make me a logo. It was very generous of him.

Well, I just finished a short campaign and I don't have a lot of time to decide if I embark on another one. I have to think about this.

I think you should. Smiley Barnes was probably too tough for anyone to win against, because he is doing a great job, but don't let the loss deter you.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

I agree completely! You have obvious talent and would make the region all that much better by running in future races.

Hello

It seems just like yesterday I was running in a special election for the Northeast assembly. I didn't win but it was an enriching and fun experience. Now there is another special election scheduled. It is with great excitement that I announce my candidacy to fill a vacant seat in the November special election.

This is my second time around and I'll try to make it better. I'm in New Britain Connecticut for my official launch but I will tour the region in the upcoming days and talk about current policy issues and topics.

Visitors to my campaign can get free leek soup. I know it's not as popular as junk food but it warms you up on a cold November day.   

I'm itching (especially my upper lip) to start. My logo should be unveiled soon. Don't forget to vote, the election is Movember 16th. I hope I can count on your support.

Thank you kindly.

While in Worcester Mass. for a political meeting, I unveil my logo for the Movember election. Poirot has a characteristic moustache so I decided to combine this with Movember since the election will be in November. I hope my logo is fun and original; it doesn't mean my candidacy is not serious.   



In case it needs more explanation, Movember takes place in November. Men let moustaches grow to raise funds and awareness for men's health like prostate cancer.
Poirot doesn't need a specific month to have a moustache. He has it all year long.
