***** State of The Region Address *****
August 20, 2017
Greetings Citizens of Texas!
Texas Elections Voting Week is over. It is our great pleasure to present to the region, the brand new Texas Government!!!
***The Texas Government***
**The Texas Cabinet**
The Governor of Texas - The BigTex NightTime AtomicBoots of NewTexas
The Lieutenant Governor of Texas - The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins
The Secretary of Defense of Texas - The Southeast Texan Republic of United States of Woodward
The Secretary of State of Texas - The Discovery Federation of Trecdom2
The Secretary of World Assembly Affairs of Texas - The Riverboat Ron of Indian Empire & The Galactic Empire of Gig em Aggies
**Texas Representative Council**
**Texas Constitutional Update**
-- None --
The Great Region of Texas officially issues Congratulations to each and every nation that was elected, that ran, that voted, that viewed these proceedings! These were some great elections as usual. This Trimester, there were several surprises for a change. First off, the vacated position of Secretary of State was a tightly contested event that boiled down to an often-tied race between two Texas Ambassadors seeking to replace their boss. Ultimately Trec nudged Safj in the end. We welcome Trec back to the Texas Cabinet after a way too long absence. There were two other races all eyes were glued to - SecDef and WA Affairs. Both of those races were ties for long periods of time. In the center of it all was Indian Empire! He was up for both positions and wound up tying for each. Since he did not express an opinion on one position over another, it was decided that the United States of Woodward would retain his post as SecDef and Indian Empire would retain his post at WA Affairs and would guide, assist, and train newcomer to the Cabinet, Gig Em Aggies! Wow, it has been ages since we have had completely new blood in the Cabinet. Most will know Gig Em has been a member of the Texas Representative Council for longer than we can remember. This is a nice progression and we look forward to working with him. The rest of the Texas Cabinet races were fairly tame with the two incumbents in the Governor's Office winning easily. Both faced off against No Confidence and neither got a single No Confidence vote. As a matter of fact, No Confidence got no votes in the Texas Elections at all! Way to have confidence Texans!
With the tie in one Cabinet race, that pulled one contender out of the Texas Representative Council race, yet still meant that someone was going home without a prize. Alas, an incumbent, the great nation of Dennisov, will be stepping aside this Trimester. Speaking of new blood, we have two more new members of Texas Government! Both Issues Test Bed and Shemiki, each of whom joined the region during the last Trimester, will be joining the Texas Representative Council! We are sure they will prove valuable additions and look forward to working with them as well.
In Texas Constitutional matters, we had none. Once again, that is a tribute to the quality of our Constitution.
We are sure our new Texas Representative Council will be a great as always and more vocal than ever. We are sure one and all will represent Texas and its citizens as well as being truly representative of the region.
Please join us in commending all of Texas for their participation in this Trimester's Election! This Election was light in the participation this Trimester. We do not get how out of 150 some odd nations (down from 215 last Election), only 9 choose to vote (up 1 from 8 last Election). It is kind of sad. However, these jobs all require work, real work, not just role play work, so it is a tribute to those who did run. Texans are still very much alive, yet older, and are a dynamic bunch even after all these years! Kudos!
Big cheers to all the members of Texas Government!
Overall, this has been great fun and a highlight for all Texans. We look forward to seeing how the new freely-elected Government of Texas will make Texas bigger, better and greater than ever! Cheers to The Great Region of Texas!
The Announcement & Party is posted here:
Long Live The Great Region of Texas!
Governor of Texas
Wow there's a lot more authority now as a member of the Government, compare to back in the day. It has been a while since I've been a Cabinet member aside from the TRC. I started off as Secretary of Space, before giving that up to become Secretary of Defense.
Pharaoh has left some big shoes to fill, but we shall do our best. We considered challenging him a few elections back, in order to shake things up, but didn't feel we stood a chance. We may need to set up a hotline to his Pyramid just in case we need advice.
We look forward to working with all the other members of the Government, and thank all those who are taking a break this time around. :)
NewTexas- I am electing to resign to let Gig 'Em have full control over Secretary of World Assembly Affairs. I wasn't even sure whether I wanted to run for re-election or not, but I figured I should give it a shot and let the people kick me out if they didn't feel I was doing a good job. Had I not ran, I would have nominated Gig 'Em as my successor anyway in the nominations. I did hint at this Saturday Afternoon in chat when I requested that if I tied for either or both spots to give the spot to my opponent. It makes me a tad nervous to do this but my hope is that you'll understand.
Gig em Aggies- The position is all yours, dude. You deserve the opportunity to serve solo. I, in the meantime, deserve the break. my Sophomore year of high school starts Wednesday and I'm not sure relatively how busy I'll be. None the less, if you need any advice, don't resist to contact me.
also Gig em Aggies- we'll be in the path of totality for tomorrow's eclipse and will have a decent shot at seeing it- supposed to be mostly sunny and in the mid 80's during the early afternoon where I'm going for the eclipse. Can definitely bring back some photos for your new WA office.
Trecdom2- best of luck to you. The Pipeline to the pyramid sounds like a great idea.
Texans- Please wholeheartedly support our new cabinet members. Nominate me whenever you all wish to have me back in action serving you. You can always contact me here and I'll try to get back to you as soon as it is convenient. I'm sorry that I resigned but I just feel it is currently what is best for my uncertain activity going into the school year and the fact that I am beginning to participate in other online groups/networks outside of NationStates that reduce the amount of time I have to do this.
May the Texas flag fly strong forever!
Sincerely, Indian Empire, (now former) Secretary of World Assembly Affairs.
I just joined DeviantArt recently and will appreciate it if everyone visits my gallery: EmmettKhan.DeviantArt.com
I will be very happy if I receive positive feedback on my comics in my art gallery. Thank you in advance and have a nice week.
Thanks man but damn you still in high school? That's not as tough as doing your last semester of college on academic suspension. Ps my departments dean let me back in but the suspension part will still stay on my profile.
