“So, the election. As I said I been busy but never to busy to pontificate and say who gets my votes.” Mike carefully sipped a glass of rum and laid his hands on the table. “First things first, those who have a shoe-in election, leaders and chosen of the null alliances? Yeah they don’t need or want my vote. So they are not getting it. Those who appear to have put their name down and done bugger all after that? Also eliminated.”
He eyed the bottle shook his head. “Let’s start with the people I know and have dealt with often enough that they get my vote . . . anytime they need it. Steve Ronuken, Otto Bismarck, Jin’taan, Commander Aze. Then we have folks that come highly recommended by people whom I trust. This includes Bei ArtJay, Sullen Decimus (and his campaign vid cracked me up), and Suitonia.” Mike counted on his fingers. “Damn that is seven already, isn’t it?”
Mike frowned and glanced at his notes. “My short list is a hell of a lot longer than 3 more names. After this it comes down to me wanting to see certain representation or people I have seen actively campaigning and communicating. After all THAT is what this is all about, in the ned. The ability to communicate. Chainsaw PlanktonI know from a lot of time on the forums.”
Ev and Scotty muttered ‘eight’.
“Yeah yeah.” Mike grimaced and nodded, “Winter duFallen has a decent cv and I am interested to see how that one will play out.”
“I CAN count without the use of a spreadsheet ya yobbos. Last one to mention is Lorelei Ierendi if only to support hisec. But the runners up are all worth looking at as well,
Cwittofur Cesaille, Saint Michaels Soul, Silver Suspiria, and Eurzadahn are among them. If somoene thought they were better suited to represent THEIR part of this universe then they would be a good choice.”
“Using that logic then Goons would vote for Goons.” Eve said.
“And you would be right on that. but I am not a goon, some I have met were very nice folks and easy to work with, like Mynnna. But they get their votes with or without the average unaligned voter so I want to say who I would like to see get in as well. Thus my list. But this bottle is empty and lonely, what say we empty another to keep the first company?”
Look, vote, whether for people I recommend or others. The STV means that almost all of you will be sure that your vote actually counted, the order of the list matters (Steve is at the top of mine)
I am looking forward to seeing the results and maybe even running, once more, next year.
fly it like you won it
