Roman Byzantine Union Regional Message Board

Canarmybrat has served the region well for over a year now, but in my opinion does not deserve the rank of Plebian Tribune due to their spans of inactivity multiple times in the past, which raises my concerns of them not being dedicated enough.

I, on the other hand, have served as senator 3 times, and as both the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of the Interior, and am responsible for the establishment of many of the embassies that we have to this day. I have never CTE'd during my 20 or so months in this region, and don't intend to for the foreseeable future.
Recently I have admittedly been less active, but being trusted by the people of this region enough to be voted Plebian Tribune will definitely change this, as I do not believe that a public figure such as the Plebian Tribune should ever be inactive. I never supported the suspension of the Plebian council back in the day either, but CB did (I'll get to that soon).

I do not think that Canarmybrat has been as consistent as me over the years, and I think that he re-instated the Plebian Council for the sole purpose of becoming tribune. I would also like to remind the voters that it was in fact Canarmybrat that originally proposed the dissolution of the council back on December 18th 201, this is a direct quote;

"@Senator I say we suspend the plebian council since it is inactive. I think there should be a plebian Tribune who would ha e a non voting role either in the government or in the senate"

The fact that CB suspended the council in the first place, only to re-create it later is extraordinarily hypocritical, and why I think they doing this for their personal gain, and not for "the betterment of the people" or whatever they have been framing this as lately.

^I also forgot to mention that I served as a judge of the RBU for many months, but I don't think this should affect voters' decisions as I didn't do anything noteworthy during that time.

You are correct, I did propose the suspension of the Plebian council, however I did recommend that a plebian tribune be put in place to represent the view of the people. It was, however, a mistake. I am going to be the first to admit when I have made a mistake.

However, I do not believe that one should be defined by their mistakes, I feel like one should be commended for learning from their mistakes.

To set the record clear, I proposed the Plebian council be suspended, but it was Dacoromania who did the deed, it never went to a vote before the senate.

After learning from my mistake, I worked hard to reverse it, going against every power in this region to make it happen. I fought in the senate, I fought in the courts, I fought in the public, campaigning tirelessly to right the wrong. And that is what seperates me from the esteemed senator Elliotus. I am a fighter. I will fight for you, the people.

Ask yourself, Elliotus said he opposed the decision, but what did Elliotus DO about it? Nothing. He sat passively by. I fought to suspended it, gained in wisedom, learned from my mistake, and fought to correct it. And the only reason Elliotus is running today is because I was able to fight for what was right.

The people of the RBU needs someone who will fight for you, fight to be your voice. I am that person.

Vote for me to be your Plebian Tribune.

Elliotus has my vote. He served well during my Tribuneship for many months - both as a minister, a judge, and a Senator. He is fully deserving of this position. Meanwhile, Canarmybrat went inactive for large amounts of time. His only major achievement during his tenure as defense minister was a military operation - which was by Palsada that he didn't even participate in. His only other noteworthy achievements were suspending the Plebian Council and then unsuspending it a year and a half later. For these reasons, and more, I fully support Elliotus for the Tribuneship.

I realize that it is too late to vote in the election for me but I would like to join the Populares Party lead by Canarmybrat.

Thank you so much for your support my friend! Glad you have returned, I hope you someday become the second female senator of this region. Congratulations to The Armed Republic of Tomboys on becoming the first.

I am going to address my long periods of inactivity in this region, as it is being used to show that I somehow do not care for it.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The truth is that I come from a abusive household. My father is a drunk. He would regularly assault both myself, my siblings, and my mother. I endured this for years. I finally had enough and left home at 17 years old. I slept on the couches of my friends, and some family members, but I had no place to call home. My father cut me off completely, I had no phone, no computer, and I was homeless a few times. I say this not to elicit pity from you, but to help you understand how it was that I wasn't always here.

I still finished school, and I got a job, a good job. I have my own place now, and one of my siblings moved in with me to get away from my father. I have my own phone which I pay for, and I have a small smart TV which I use as my computer. I pay all my bills on time, and have never had my service cut off. I am as reliable now as anyone else in this region. I hated that I could not be here more often in the past, but I plan to be here every day in the future.

I know what it means to struggle, and I am dedicated to helping people in everything I do, hopefully so nobody has to go through the last 10 years that I have, especially the last 2 years.

I hope to someday go back to school, to college, and get a degree in social work, so that I may be even more of service, especially to young children in abusive situations. Or maybe become a police officer and not ignore the repeated calls for help that people make all the time. Maybe after my sibings are all moved out and away from the hell that is home, and I am sure that they are safe.

So I hope that this is not something used against me. I apologize again for not always being here, but I promise everyone that I am here for as long as there is a RBU.

Real-life should always come first, and I am happy that you have managed to get your life back on track. However, it is obvious to everyone that the Plebian Council in its current state is inactive and essentially dead. Not only is it dead right now, but it has been dead for it's entire existence, since the beginning of the Region. (which is why you chose to suspend it in the first place). It will require a great deal of time and effort to rejuvenate the council, and to make it actually mean something.

Even with the reasons you have (which are very good ones if I may add), reviving the council will take a lot of time and effort, which I am not sure that you have. I have been more consistently active than you, and personally believe that I have the dedication and willpower the council needs.

As I said when I started writing; real life comes first, so take all the time you need.

My situation is much improved and as such there is nothing in my way of being a dedicated Tribune.

I am not allergic to go ideas. If you have the energy and dedication you say you do, then us joining forces will make the plebian council a force to be reckoned with. The senate will need to treat us as equals. So I propose this Elliotus.

I am still going to run, and hopefully win the Tribuneship and set things up correctly. I will serve 1 term. I will then reevaluate my situation, and if things are still good, I will step down as tribune and throw my support behind you for Plebian Tribune in 3 months time, and run for the senate. If my situation is not good I will simply take a step back from public life.

What I do know is that the RBU has more to gain by us working together. I still think you should join my movement, a movement for the people, and be a Plebian Tribune in waiting.

which one of you two like fries?
