Hello. My username is Automationeer (formerly known as abmzly, mreday, ElliottLMz) and I am announcing my re-election campaign for the House of Representatives.
I have served for two terms in the House, and throughout my entire political career have maintained and stuck to the same set of values, even when it puts me at a personal disadvantage.
I intend to get re-elected so I can continue my work; throughout the current term, I have authored acts like the Comprehensive Pay Rise Act and A Bill to Protect Freedom of Speech at Work, and championed and contributed to acts like Private Business Ownership Protection Act and Self Defense Extension Act.
I am a Bar Certified Attorney; this qualifies me to inspect and consider legislation in a unique light to some of my colleagues and enables me to provide more constructive and more relevant feedback to my peers.

I ran on a platform of protecting rights, business support, and serving citizens. I fulfilled these goals throughout my time in office through several bills, including A Bill to Protect Freedom of Speech at Work, the Comprehensive Pay Rise Act, and An Amendment to Secure DOC Bridge.
Throughout both of my terms, I have continued to work on and support various projects. I regularly contribute and spark discourse about ideas, bills, and proposals in our public and internal congressional channels, providing constructive and impactful feedback to ensure.
During my previous campaign, I had promised to conduct a review of the Firestone Criminal Code; this project had to be canceled for various technical reasons. I had also promised to communicate better and work with businesses and departments. While I have been very supportive in aiding departments, this is not a promise I have been able to keep to the extent I wished.

I continue to hold and maintain three fundamental values:
Government Transparency: Governments serve citizens, citizens have the right to promote government accountability, and that can only occur if the government acts openly and transparently, within reason; some departments need to remain behind closed doors.
Business Support: Businesses are the backbone and lifeblood of Firestone, and they must receive support to enable them.
Serving Citizens: In extension of Government Transparency, it is a duty and responsibility of all elected and appointed officials to consider and act in the citizens’ best interests.
Beyond crafting legislation that upholds and perpetuates these values, I intend to work towards the following if re-elected:
The Congressional Inquiry Act, alongside Senators Sharkfish82 and CoolPilotCaio1, will enable congress to create temporary select committees to coordinate an investigation into a topical issue.
Work with court officials to review the judicial ethics and misconduct acts, which have been controversial both inside and outside the courts
Conduct a hollistic review of current legislation and identify where improvement is needed
Reform electoral law
Continue contributing towards various legislative and administrative projects and supporting Congressional business
Conduct a review of self-defense law, especially legislation regarding lethal force
