Azul, fellow Benitians,
as I have anticipated in my semi-retirement thread1, I am happy to announce I am running for the privilege of representing our beloved Province of Benito in the Senate for another term.
I have been honoured to represent Benito in the Senate from 2014 onwards, constantly being at the forefront of parliamentary activity - in the Ziu at-large and in the Senate in particular - through the introduction and passage of legislation that matters2, the regular attendance3 and the constant striving to turn the Senate into a model parliamentary body4 and the province of Benito into a major national player. I am committed to keeping up Benito's national profile through my continued involvement in running Senatorial business, directly and indirectly.
I am honoured to accept the endorsement of the Moderate Radicals, but as I've mentioned before, if elected I will take advantage of my planned leave from any leadership role or executive office by adopting an independent and provincially minded agenda. Gone will be the constraints of the Seneschalsqab and the impartiality that is necessary with the role, I will return to be a champion of all Benitians and strive for more participation and involvement.
(1: Where I didn't actually resign from the Seneschalsqab, as my opponent wrongly mentioned.)
(2: Such as budget bills, electoral commission reform, electoral procedure reform... It's all in here.)
(3: I have only missed a single vote in my entire parliamentary tenure.)(4: I'm referring to the effort to bring Standing Rules into the Ziu, a nonpartisan attempt to revamp activity and get us a proper set of bylaws.)
