As many of you have heard, by the end of this year I will no longer be holding the office of Mayor of the Expeditionary Township. Within that time, the Expeditionary Council will appoint a new Mayor, and they have agreed that it would be wisest to give first consideration to any Expeditioners seeking the position. Thus, I wish for those who might have interest to make their intent to pursue the post clear, and to make a case as to why they would be the best fit for the position. I ask that anyone with an interest post notice below, along with their best presentation of why they would make a good Mayor. I also invite others to voice their support, comments, or concerns, though I also ask that civility be maintained. I will also work to answer questions anyone may wish to direct my way.
Thank you all,
Prince Venyamin Hakkar of Orgg'Veld Mayor of the Expeditionary Township
To the Expeditionary Council, the Expedition, and whomever else it may concern:
I, Deva Suvaerna, would like to be considered as a candidate for the position of Mayor of the Expeditionary Township.
I have been part of the Expedition into Galdria since it began in 1216. My commitment to the Expedition has been shown in my perfect attendance record for all Expeditionary events. It is with such dedication that I approach all my endeavours, as it is my belief that one should always strive to be their best.
Why am I qualified? Firstly, I am an academic. I have a penchant for note taking, record keeping, and research. I am observative and attentive to detail. I believe these skill sets will be beneficial to my thorough and accurate reporting of Expeditionary events and needs, as well as managing the decent amount of paperwork that goes into making sure the Expedition is able to run as smoothly as possible.
In addition, I like to think of myself as quite sociable, and approachable. In my time with the Expedition I have shared a roof with people from Khadaan, Thran, Sulim, Valicia, and Rukazen; as well as having made various friendships with Expeditioners and locals alike from the Commonwealth. I am not concerned with the wealth or status of my associates, and I would like to urge any to feel comfortable approaching me. As Mayor I would be happy to hear the needs and experiences of any Expeditioner.
With that said, it is the already existing support of many of my fellow Expeditioners that makes me feel, perhaps, most qualified. During my time in the Expedition I have had multiple Expeditioners ask me to take on further leadership, or express their willingness to follow my lead. My comfort in a place of leadership and working in circles with the influential, like myself, along with the support and encouragement of many of my fellow Expeditioners, is what brings me to applying for consideration as the new Mayor of the Expeditionary Township. Thank you for your consideration.

I support Deva for role of Mayor of the Expeditionary Township. She is dedicated to the success of the Expedition and the welfare of those who participate and support this endeavor. She maintains good relationships with people of diverse backgrounds, races, and cultures, and has demonstrated a firm grasp of sociopolitical events both current and historical. I believe that she is most qualified to serve as Mayor.
