As the term comes to an end, I would like to thank everyone here for all their hard work to turn the Department of State from nothing to something great. The department had around 3-4 employees when I inherited it, no active relations, and minimal policies. In this term, we now employee about 35 people, have 3-4 active relations, will form our first real treaty in ages, added many needed policies, and organized everything.
I also admit I am not perfect. The Department of State still has some issues that I would like to see resolved. For example, there have been some hardships that resulted from being overstaffed and bureaucratized. The foreign policy should be updated and adapted to fit the constraints of Roblox, but also take into account the need to expand who the State Department can interact with in order to have more to do.
I would like to give a special thanks to @Jordan_Chime for helping me make it through this term. He was here when I inherited it and has worked very hard to help improve the department with me.
The Firestone-Mayflower treaty will be finalized in the coming days and that will mark the State Department’s final act.
I enjoyed my time as Secretary of State immensely. Governor @CanineEnforcement has done an excellent job handling our foreign affairs and I bid him good luck in this election so he can continue this work. However, I do not intend to try to stay as Secretary of State next term, and hope whoever takes the reigns from me can improve it even more.
I believe it is my time to take it easy in Firestone. Serving as the first Chief Court Justice of Firestone, Firestone Secretary of State, and District Attorney has been a great honor and I thank all those who helped me along the way. I will remain in FDHS for a few months and will most likely leave Roblox sometime towards the end of the year. Should anyone need legal advice (once I get my BAR cert back and hopefully grandfathered in) I will always be available on discord.
