And one thing I will never stoop to is bribing candidates with preferential treatment on certain issues, or promising favors for votes. I vow to represent Forumshire, and the respectability this domain demands, to my utmost ability. I will see to it that the Queen's Justice is carried out swiftly, and efficiently with the implementation of a portal to an alternate dimension where the guilty will meet their fate at the hands of the Deep Ones.

Under my mayorship, the geoduck will be classified as a protected species, and any individual caught in violation of any laws or regulations under the Forumshire Protected Species Act will meet with the Queen's Justice.

As candidate for mayor, I am also looking to cut bureaucratic waste. To start, I plan to deregulate the production and sales of Buckie. This will lower the cost through cutting the Buckie sales tax, and will allow individuals to produce their own Buckie to the potency that they see fit.

The safety of Forumshire is of the utmost importance to me. The Troll-Guard will be doubled and the borders will receive additional supplies and troops to prevent any undesirable, unrespectable characters from tainting our home.

Together. Stronger. Forever.

The Future Is Bright

Bungo For Mayor In 2014

this sounds fair enough, but are you fully prepared to sort out forumshire problemz, its not all opening summer fetes you know?

I fear we may have to have a proper soapbox thread where each candidate is given one post and a word count within which to make their case.

I hope you are not casting a shadow of doubt over the impartiality of the very Forumshire political institutes you are canvassing to join Bungo?  Suspect

I hope that's not Mrs Figg in wolf's clothing? I mean, I would be the last to imply Mrs Figg is not what she sees to be and is quite a safe choice as a candidate... not a carnivore hungry for illicit power and with a penchant for frollicking - which would not seem respectable.  Shocked

I have a firm belief in " Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité."
 Hobbits from distant lands, All the free peoples of Forumshire are welcome here. I believe in building a strong bond of unity, of peace & compassion but also strength in numbers to quell any foes that breach our borders. Also Ive got a bloody good alliance with our hairy pal, Beorn, who's happy to lay on barrels of honey for our annual picnic, not just for greedy consumption but it makes exceedingly good mead  Smile  And its about time I threw off the witches weeds & jazzed up in a nice bit of red velvet  Smile 
So, If you want to nominate an Ideologist, a judge of fairness, a fearless member of the community, ( plus I do have an intoxicating potion to zap up an after hours lock in,and IL find something to make Dave's field Sprite proof ) I am your man.....woman !  Very Happy

Thats beside the point! What if one day the terrible circumstances arise where it is my round? And it costs a fortune. My poor sporran!

{{{You might have a point about Queen Tin's cellars though! I never gave much thought to where the buckie comes from so much as where it goes!}}}
