« edited: September 09, 2018, 10:38:12 pm by Delegate TheSaint250 »


Hello, my fellow Atlasians! Today, I announce my first campaign to seek a full term. I will be running as a Federalist for a seat in the Southern Chamber! Previously, I had the opportunity to serve as an Acting Delegate in the chamber. Within that time, I participated in debates and every vote I could participate in. In addition, I was also the original author of the successful Effective Highway Evacuation Act, allowing for Southern citizens to flee hurricanes in a faster manner. As a Souther Delegate, I will look out for you and work to continue the successes of the current productive Southern government. I have been up-to-date with Southern legislation and applaud Speaker Mr. Reactionary and the various members for leading one of, if not the most, productive sessions. It would be an honor to be a part of this.

I hope I can have your vote in the upcoming election. A vote for me is a vote for progress towards the South of tomorrow.

Platform

Abortion: I am in favor of protecting a woman's right to choose but would like to see increased funding in the Southern education system in regards to sex education so as to limit the number of abortions across the region.

Economy: I have always believed in fiscal responsibility.  I will fight to keep taxes at a reasonable level for Southern citizens and support policies that entice businesses to remain in the South, all of which will help increase the economic growth of the region.  

Energy: It is not feasible to rapidly reduce the use of fossil fuels across the region.  However, I will look to urge energy companies to make such a transition to solar and wind energy with the goal of making the region dependent upon renewable energy in the long-term.

Foreign Policy: While we must maintain peace through strength, Atlasia must not enter wars and conflicts of which the nation is not so involved in.  We must protect the lives of the citizens of all three regions at all costs, and this includes members of our armed forces.

Gun Rights: Able Southern citizens must not be denied their right to own a firearm.  However, I will support increased background checks that would expand upon histories of criminal activity and mental illnesses so as to prevent such weapons from falling into the wrong hands.

Health Care: I applaud the work of the Chamber of Delegates in the passage of the Health Insurance Reform Act and will see that Southern citizens receive the care that they need.

Infrastructure: The South must invest more money in its infrastructure so as to repair destroyed roads, broken bridges, and other such transportation hazards.  

LGBTQ Rights: I will always protect the right of same-sex couples to marry.  In addition, I will not support any legislation designed to prevent transgender citizens from using the restrooms they would prefer to use.

Marijuana Legalization: While I personally lean against the legalization of both medical and recreational marijuana, I believe that such an issue should be determined by the citizens of the South and confirmed by the Chamber of Delegates.

Minimum Wage: I support a moderate increase to the regional minimum wage, allowing for workers to earn more money and preventing businesses from feeling constrained by such a new law.

Trade: I support fair trade practices over unrestricted free trade and full protectionism.  We must not cut ourselves off from the world, but we must also let national, regional, state, and local industries develop without fearing massive losses in jobs.  While the Southern Chamber of Delegates does not have a say in trade deals approved between the national government and other countries, I will not be silent and will fight to ensure that Congress supports appropriate deals that allow for positive benefits for the workers of Atlasia.

My platform is up! I included both Southern-exclusive issues as well as my viewpoint on several national issues.

I might add anything else at a later time that I feel would help voters understand more about my policies.

Statement
On Chamber of Delegates Inactivity

After every vote in the Chamber of Delegates, Speaker Mr. Reactionary posts the number of delegates who voted yes or no, as well as the number that abstained.  In some cases, only a slim majority of delegates have voted.  While I myself cannot force delegates to participate more, I promise that I will give the Southern people a voice by voting in as many bills as I possibly can.  I would not have run for office knowing that I could not fulfill my duties to the best of my ability.  I will be an active participant as a member of the Chamber of Delegates.

Thank you, and please vote for me in the upcoming election.

Statement
On Infrastructure

Across the South, roads, bridges, and other publicly financed forms of infrastructure are crumbling.  The government has yet to take major actions to locate areas in need of repair.  If I have the honor of being elected to the Chamber of Delegates, this will be one of my top priorities.  Inspired by the works of now-Representative ReaganClinton in the creation of Lincoln's Regional Security Office, I am proposing the creation of a Southern-exclusive office that would handle the carrying-out of interior infrastructure and environmental plans voted on by the Chamber of Delegates.  Expanding upon infrastructure, such an office would conduct a survey determining roads, bridges, and more at risk and in need of repair and would suggest a price for repairing the various sites.  It would then be up to the Chamber of Delegates to proceed as agreed upon.  

I hope that you will vote for me and my plan to improve the South's infrastructure.
