A brief word from the Candidates
Citizens of Firestone, thank you for taking your time to read through this manifesto. I’m OfficerVideoGame, running for Governor in this election. I’ve been in Firestone for roughly a year and a half now, and I’ve been in multiple high positions which include:
P.O.S.T. Instructor (and Junior Instructor)
Lieutenant Governor x2
With my extensive history and knowledge of Firestone, the positions within it and the law regarding it, I feel like I may be the most qualified person running in this election. I can faithfully defend and lead the Executive branch within Firestone. If elected, this term will be one of the most productive terms ever. We will be focusing on “fixing” the state, making it transparent and easy to understand, and cementing us as a superpower amongst states, yet less isolationist, more willing to talk and fight for what’s right.
Salutations, I am the Lieutenant Gubernatorial Candidate. I have been in Firestone for more than a year, and at this current time, I am running alongside OfficerVideoGame in the upcoming 2018 Gubernatorial Election.
My past positions include :
SCFD Paramedic in Charge
Sitting FBI Director.
Although I may not have congressional experience, I am more than capable of learning how to preside over the senate and overall gaining knowledge of congressional procedure, which has been a goal of mine. However, presiding over the Senate is just half of the job, also working together with the Governor to help keep the administration efficient and successful. OfficerVideoGame believes I am capable of taking this office, and I wouldn’t be accepting such an opportunity if I did not feel I was up to the task. Should anything happen to OfficerVideoGame, I feel I will be able to take charge and continue thru the rest of the term. I have plans to put the Senate back on track, I feel the Senate should be holding more sessions as once a week is proving to be inefficient. Holding two or three a week should hopefully, improve the efficiency of the Senate and hopefully prevent the docket from constantly being cluttered. My time in the FBI has exposed me to the road to failure and inefficiency the current government is on, and I want to work with OfficerVideoGame to change that. Sure it might require some changes, but I have ideas to help put this state back on track and turn it into the superpower it should be.
In the recent history of Firestone, the amount of classified information and information that is kept hidden from the public has increased and increased. We believe the government should be more transparent. Our goal is to declassify and release things that have been sitting in the archive and pose no threat if they were to be released. In our minds, the people are above the government, and the government should be more transparent.
In order to combat this, some of our plans of action in this term would be to:
Release any and all old documents that hold no more relevance from the past terms.
Make sure that classification is given out to certain documents, not given out to certain people to classify everything they can.
Classification will no longer be something thrown around willy-nilly, but more regulated and overseen by the Executive Branch.
Recently the State Department has been left to rot. Our goal for this administration is to restore the state department and install our foreign policy. We believe that we should be responsible for keeping peace between all within the Ro-State Community. If we must bring peace thru strength, we shall be ready to do it. We believe all have rights, and that we should defend it throughout all of the states.
Our main goals to do this are
Make ambassador a secondary job so we can get more people to be ambassadors.
Increase the power of our National Guard so we can act as a defender of peace and democracy throughout the ro-states community.
Work on making more alliances with other states.
Shed our isolationist outlook to foreign politics, and rebuild the state department to what it should be.
State Security shall be a priority for this term, with the rise of new criminal organizations such as Massino, Quietus Clan, and others. Putting these threats down shall be a priority, we plan to send a message that Firestone is no safe haven for crime and we will come down on it hard. Using our intelligence agencies and state security forces, we shall bring these criminals to justice. Should they be such a problem, the Department of Justice will prosecute aiming for the maximum sentence. Equipping our security agencies to better combat the threat of organized crime, rogues, or any threat to state security will greatly push us further towards our goal to a safer state. We shall take a stand against Massino who claims to be the new Silvani and bring them to their knees thru the courts and any means necessary.
In order to better secure the state and carry out this task, our plan of action shall be:
To better equip our intelligence agencies such as the FBI and IO to better combat organized crime threats such as Massino and it’s allies.
To better prepare our security forces to counter serious occurrences in the county, i.e.: Attacks, Rogue Officers, Any Serious Threat To the State.
To ensure we have the ability to bring criminals thru prosecution by the justice department for the sentences that see fit.
The Executive Branch
The Executive Branch has almost always been kept quiet and secretive. No more. Our Executive Branch will have a press division in order to inform citizens of the accomplishments and progress of the branch. Allowing the Chief of Staff to lead this press division, advise the Governors, and work with the County more, and not just be someone to take notes at Cabinet meetings. Giving our Chief of Staff power to work with the Executive Branch and being the general “Secretary” of the branch.
Some of our plans for the Executive Branch:
Have bi-weekly press releases.
Have bi-weekly Cabinet Meetings.
Have monthly press conferences.
Include the press more in our branch, potentially a press corps.
The Judicial Branch
Recently due to several resignations, the Judicial branch has been crippled. We plan to restore the judicial branch and get all three courts moving again. Filling the empty seats on the Supreme and Appeals Courts should be a top a priority. And overall, returning the courts to a stable state and able to uphold the constitution and the law shall be a huge victory towards a fairer state and towards state security.
Our plans to do this are
Nominate More Competent Justices to the Courts.
Fill Important Vacancies (such as the Supreme and Appeals Court)
Allow stricter and more diverse punishment, like fines.
The Legislative Branch
The Legislative Branch has gone quiet for the past month or two. Not much has happened within it, except for the attempted impeachment of AmerlcanLaw, and there are still numerous amounts of loopholes that can be found within our bills. Congress is also constantly having dwindling member counts. A way we can fix this is by making more committees and councils for Congress, and making Congress more interesting compared to a place where only bills are read and you need to decipher the law making mumbo-jumbo in the bill.
Other potential fixes could be:
Give Congress more power to lift themselves up and make legislation.
Allow for lots of committees and councils, who can make our legislative system more interesting.
Encourage more people to run for Congress, if they’re in a secondary job.
Stapleton County has been recently failing to uphold the citizen’s requests. After the recent resignation of the County Executive who called for the removal of the county government. It seems to have become a highly debated topic in the realms of FS Politics. We believe, that is it not the county that is bad, but the people who have chaired it. Instead of removing the county government, we should compromise on the matter and look towards finding better people to run it. We can establish this by restarting the capitol staff program which allowed legislators to hire staff to assist them with their tasks. This system acted as a “apprenticeship” towards aspiring politicians in Firestone and helped them get onto the political stage. Finally Removing the county government takes away a vital part of representation, the local level, and honestly it wouldn’t match with realism that Firestone is built upon.
In summary, our plans are.
Temporarily Suspend the County Government
Re-establish the Capitol Staff to assist Legislators and overall help aspiring politicians gain experience before entering the real realm of FS Politics
After a period of time, unsuspend the County Government and call for full elections.
Overall the decision of what happens to the county government is left into the hands of the citizens of Firestone, and we are ready to listen to the people and respect their decisions. If they want the County Government removed, it shall happen, however we believe preserving the county government would overall help improve representation and efficiency in the long run.
To conclude, I OfficerVideoGame, alongside PwnzorSausage have some revolutionary ideas we wish to implement. Departments and Branches we wish to fix, and overall change the standing of Firestone in the Ro-States community as a superpower, a keeper, and bringer of peace, enforcing rights of all ROBLOXIANS big and small. We intend to implement serious reforms to departments, improve the strength of our armed forces, and better secure the state from threats, foreign and domestic. We thank you for reading our manifesto, and we can count on your support for a better and more transparent Firestone!
