Greetings fellow Americans,
Today I come to you full of turkey and pumpkin pie. I hope you are equally as stuffed and happy as I am after time well spent with family and friends. I am also very thankful. I am thankful that I have great friends, both new and old, that are willing to come with me on this campaign journey. This nation is full of great talent and it is difficult to put together a team when such great choices are out there.
Molly Emma will be immediately called a pandering choice and to that I laugh. When I came back from a short break late last winter, it was not long before I had the pleasure of interacting and working with Molly. She has continued to work tirelessly for the nation and that is something I respect immensely. She challenges me to think thorougly on tough decisions and to consider all angles. I've considering a few presidential runs since returning and put it off for better candidates for the nation, but I've always known what sort of VP I needed and Molly Emma has continually been at the top of that list.
Chief of Staff:
This one might come as a bit of a surprise to some seeing as John Killah is a political opponent at this time, but I'll let it be known, I could truly care less about what party an individal comes from or their stance towards me. I've worked with political opponents in the past and I'll continue to do so. John is a great candidate for Chief of Staff and will play a large role in keeping my cabinet on top of their responsibilities. On top of that, he's been a great mate and is not afraid to whip me as needed to make sure all areas of government are being held accountable.
Deputy Chief of Staff
I've watched Jefferson Locke from afar and have been impressed by the work ethic and quality of work I have seen. A promising young player that deserves the chance to learn by getting their hands truly into the gritty part of cabinet. He'll have many opportunities to learn from cabinet Secretaries and national leadership. I look forward to seeing him grow, learn, and suceed in this role.
Secretary of the Interior
Duncan Crowe has served as a deputy for the Interior this past month and has done splendidly. Full of energy, ideas, and quality, It was an easy decision to make. Being a young up-and-comer himself, he knows what is needed to adapt and grow the department to better help new players. We have a great new generation coming through and we must continue to be sure that every new player is able to survive and continue to eat, work, and fight for themselves and this nation. Support from Interior, MUs, and parties coupled with new player education will make sure that the nation continues to grow. I've tasked him with finding his own deputies. I'm certain he will quickly be able to find players that are best able to assist him in making sure that Interior is sucessful and consistent the entire term.
Secretary of Education
I love easy transitions. Speaking of new player education, I've decided to retain Dr Heisenberg. He's done a wonderful job this past month and I have no doubt he will continue to do so. Education is massively important for the well being of the nation and upbringing of new players. I look forward to his continued successes and development of the Education department.
Deputy Secretary of Education
Educating new players is a never-ending task and Exploration (formally known as EnterAwesome) did a wonderful job working with the Dr last month. I look forward to seeing that relationship continue to develop and benefit our new players. Learning the game is the biggest task towards mastering the game and Education continues to do a brilliant job with this. I have no doubt that this team and their other team members will continue to do excellently with the mission they are tasked with.
As you can see, I've left some positions out of this article. Things like State, Defense, NSC and more will be announced in my next cabinet article. I'm quite excited about those people and what they will contribute towards the community and nation. For now, I'll leave you a few words on further cabinet positions.
I am completely open minded on many positions in government this month. I want to find positions for as many players as possible. Deputies, trainees, internes, etc. There is a large, competent and energetic new generation of players and I want them to be involved. Are you interested? Are your friends? Tell them to apply for cabinet here:
As always, do not hesitate to message me with any questions, concerns, thoughts, etc. I would love to hear from you.
