Well I am a bit late for this, but I wanted to make sure I had everything in place before going forward with this. I gave my cabinet a bit of thought, and I wanted to form something along the lines of a “team of rivals”. Given the number of Presidential contenders this month, it wasn’t too hard to construct, but there was still the issue of placement and decision. While everything is not completely finalized, I am satisfied so far. Without further ado, I would like to present my cabinet.
First, I had to decide my number #2 slot, and this choice was pretty easy for me. We had joked about it previously, and we had gotten close over the past few months working together and occasionally discussing current events in the eUS and the world. Despite his obsession with Girls Aloud, this guy is a bro to me, and he’s also a proven leader both in government and his party. My Vice President will be Wild Owl
Next up is the person in charge of commanding my staff. Naturally, we all want someone like Israel Stevens to fill this role, but I want him to rest a bit easier and bring someone else up to the plate to work on this. He’s previously served as a Deputy NSC, a commanding officer in Ultramarines, and an active congressman for We The People. My Chief of Staff will be The Mike
As a veteran of the State Department, I definitely wanted to see something new here. We’re going to have a stable month in foreign affairs, which leaves us some room to bring in new blood to this area. After working closely with him in the Liberty Advancement Party, this person was highly interested in bringing something new to governance. Given the opportunity, this person will perform above and beyond. My Minister of Foreign Affairs will be Aramec.
Now to bring in a little bit of experience, I wanted to keep on the track for Defense. Along with being an excellent secretary this month, this person has dedicated himself to his work. This was a simple choice for me and I have always enjoyed working alongside him. My Secretary of Defense will be dmjohnston.
Alongside DMJ on Defense will be another cabinet member who hasn't been national in quite sometime. Known as an American tank, a prolific writer, and the EZC benefactor, I know this person is up to the task. My NSC Chairman will be Gnilraps.
We also have the money vizier to think about. This position is usually advisory but includes someone involved in economics or our CBO. I chose this person because they always make smart fiscal decisions with money. My Secretary of the Treasury will be Evry.
Now we start getting into the focus of my term: the domestic agenda. We’ll start off with Education. You’ve already seen this guy’s name before, and there is a reason for that. He has an energy for making changes, and although a bit new, has always pushed for new activities and programs to be built. I have confidence in this person and I hope you will too. My Secretary of Education will be Alexandrer Coin.
Next up we have Interior. This Department has been struggling lately, and I have taken note. During this month we had an older player step up to keep it running, and he has proven himself capable. I expect to have several conversations and plans with this player for shaking up the Interior a bit and bringing it to greater prominence. My Secretary of the Interior will be Arrden.
This next job is a new project of mine. Retention and activity were issues I brought up in my first article, and I want to pursue solutions. Along with the input from congress, I wanted to set up a new Department focused on player activity, not necessarily their education or supply. I didn’t want this burden to fall on either Education or Interior and overload them. Combining a bit of fun with a bit of human resources, it is my hope this department finds a niche to give it long-term viability. What’s a game without a little experimentation? The person I picked for this job embodies fun, activity, and a desire to help our country. My Secretary of Human Services will be EnterAwesome.
Now we get to domestic security, but I want this Department to change a bit. We already saw some of it this month, but Homeland Security needs to evolve if it stays around. The PTO is out of the Top 5, but it isn’t gone, and we need to keep our parties strong to prevent its resurgence. This person has expertise in ATO and party affairs, so I knew he was a good candidate for the job. My Director of Homeland Security will be Tyler Bubblar.
Now we’re at Media, another one of my fields. Media comes and goes, but is usually highly active and has a dedicated publication. Another guy came in this month with a desire to help, and has proven quite capable. Evolving from America’s troll to America’s voice, this person shows that a lot of people care for this country. My Secretary of Media will be Valiant Thor.
Although the top slots have been picked, there is still quite a bit of room for deputies and staff, and I am still on the hunt. If you are interested in working for my administration, do not hesitate to contact me, but I must advise you to focus on our domestic institutions. We need people working at home much more than people working abroad. I look forward to hearing your interest and your responses to this article.
Let’s get it going shall we?
