Today, I’d like to openly announce my intentions to run for Country President of eCanada, and I am very much hoping to receive the backing of my party – the Canadian Communist Party – to help me achieve this goal. I’ve already been informed that I have the backing of at least one other party, so either way my name will be up on the election ballot.
This particular article is directly aimed at the membership of the CCP and is the first of a good few articles that will outline my policies, cabinet and various other things that I hope will convince you to give me your vote.
So, why should you, the average CCP member, support me as your CP candidate?
Lets start with the basics – I’m a woman, and I’m a red head. Sorted.
No, lets be serious for a minute. I admit, my experience in eCanada is limited as I’m still pretty new here. The government experience that I have comes from eAus. When I arrived to eAus, I was asked to help Hugh rebuild Aus’ Centrelink scheme – a scheme designed to help, educate and retain new players. When we took it over, it truly was dead and buried – the scheme hadn’t been used in months, and in turn retention of players in eAus was very low. I helped run the scheme for four months. I was the holder of all the Gdocs concerned with the scheme (and because of my OCD, I had a silly amount of docs detailing everything from donations received and everything distributed, right down to how many players to come through the scheme had either been banned or had become dead citizens...even calculating what percentage of the money used was wasted because of banned accounts). I was also responsible for holding and transferring the cash. With us running it, we turned it into something extremely successful; without a doubt we helped retain more players and get them up and running within the game, and cemented within the community. We were also the most active government department within the country. We never used any government money for the scheme, instead donating our own money and gold, and by campaigning hard for donations. By the time we left eAus, we had over 49000cc left in the org.
Whilst still working on Centrelink (later renamed by us to the Joey Development Scheme, cos we figured it did what it said on the tin and sounded funky fresh), I also had the fortune of being appointed Marshal of the eAus’ government’s military unit – the Australian Defence Force. When I took over the MU there was literally about 5 active fighters, despite having above 50 members. The MU was also draining money due to over-supplying to those who didn’t really need it. I worked with the Department of Defence, and with theirs and the CP’s blessing, cut down supply levels and spending to those I felt really needed it – the new players. I began to only supply those in Divisions 1 & 2 and cut the deadwood. I also worked hard on making it an active community. By the time I left eAus, thanks to the changes I had made and the fact that the shoutbox was now flourishing, we had grown to 5 times the amount of active fighters we had when I was appointed Marshal. We were also firmly cemented within the Top 5 MU’s, and were regularly grabbing the #1 spot.
My experiences in eAus show that I am more than capable of handling numerous tasks of responsibility without issues and also showing I am a very active player.
Again, I will be very open and admit I am a former eUK’er. It was whilst in the eUK that I was Party President of a newly created party and played a key role in taking it from 2 members to over 70 at its peak (within two months I might add). And I’m quite proud in saying that that was done without even once offering money, gold or bribes for joining us; it was purely down to our epic recruitment skills. For anyone that remembers – it was the Independent Alliance.
I hope you offer me the chance to be your party candidate so we can take Canada forward to new opportunities and a month of activity. My next article will be focusing on my policies, and will be released before any party vote on who we will be backing.
Ta much for reading
Thanks for all the help, Hugh!
