New York Regional Message Board
Marvia, normally I'd say a veteran the region of NY gets the position of delegate, as they have had more of an opportunity to earn the trust of the populace. Why don't you try to take another post to prove yourself? One of our assembly members is out right now. During the next assembly elections, throw your name in the ring. But most of all, stick with NY. Being a bureaucrat in NY takes responsibility, and it's a shame to see countries like Xcom North America get elected and then disappear.
As an assembly member, I recommend sticking with Vanic as WA delegate until, and IF, he resigns his post. Let's not start a power struggle yet.
From and reside.
I wanted to resign the WA in protest but I realized I could not. New York is dependent of me to provide security and stability to the region, and if I resign it will cause New York to become unstable for an indefinite period of time, leaving it vulnerable to invasions. I see this as a major problem. If I ever cease to exist, then who will carry on the role of New York's governance? The answer is vague at best. Everyone besides me has the maximum of only two endorsements. I fear that if we do not address this situation, it will inevitably be New York's downfall.
Should it not be that all WA people endorse the sitting delegate until he or she is voted out of office, resigns, et cetera?
I agree that, for security purposes, we should endorse Vanic, but I'm going to be completely clear that we should hold Vanic even MORE responsible for any actions as WA delegate with that new authority. If ANYONE has any doubts about Vanic's actions, feel free to start a discussion, which may lead to a vote of no confidence.
Also, endorsing Vanic, though recommended, should not be forced on anyone.
Devil and Gell-Mannhattan, any problems?
Yes, every WA should endorse the delegate, but some are unresponsive. Elections are what I planned in the first place. I'm planning on proposing the proposal again soon.
Did I do something wrong? 0:-)
Well, a vote of "no confidence" is different than scheduled elections. If someone does not like Vanic's leadership, they and someone to second them can call a vote of no confidence. Should that vote pass by super-majority, Vanic loses his post. Simple as that. Kind of like GB's system.
