〘 A Good Man for Good People 〙
[!]Antanios Rutledge grips his trusty cane, using it to hobble himself over for another campaign in his beloved Belvitz
Setting: Belvitz, Grand Harvest, 1692.
Antanios, since his first Parliament session, experienced many things. Some hectic, some interesting, but all special. He realized he had the knack for parliament.
Elections were coming up, and one thing was for sure.
Holy, beloved Belvitzia needed a Prefect.
So he gripped his cane, a reminder of his tenacity and loyalty to Belvitz, that he would hold onto the threads of life itself in order to serve. Antanios Opal Rutledge’s entire life was Belvitz, and its citizens. So, equipped with his trusty soapbox from previous elections, he spoke. “I see the needs of our beloved duchy, and more than ever I want to serve. Ever since I became your prefect, I helped to build your public mines, I designed and built the expansion of the Ducal retinue under approval, and I continue to plow fields to prepare for the oncoming frost; so that our citizens may have food for their families, and firewood to warm their homes and meals.” “I will always fight for ye, and I raise my legacy to do the same. If you let me, I will represent you in Parliament. Vote for Morality, something that IS good.. not because something simply sounds good.” “A good man is more valuable than a good idea.” “What is good? The Common Civic Party, the Common Sense Party. The Good Man for the Good People Party. I do not judge you by your class, nor do I judge you by your skin color, we are citizens of Adria. We bleed the same blood, we serve the same empire! My focus is on bettering Belvitz, because we all can admit that we deserve better, the very people and the very citizens deserve better!"
I helped to build and pay for our public mines.
I designed and built the approved extension of the Adrian Ducal Retinue building.
"I promise good, and it’s backed up by my good record. I do what I can to help."
Even now, whether I am your prefect or not,
I am fully funding Court Chaplain Charles of Nauzica’s project to provide education to the future generations of Adria, and if anything disastrous were to happen I offer to lend my hand to help rebuild. He is a good man, and I know he will go far.
I will still serve and protect you, no matter what the outcome.
When it comes to Adria
I strive to put our citizens first.
I strive to provide our citizens with what they need.
I vote for more power to the vassals.
I vote for free trade.
I vote to oppose burdening taxes.
“Will you vote for someone who will always look after Belvitz? We shall make ourselves great, then we can make the empire greater!”
So, with his trusty soapbox, Antanios Opal Rutledge stepped off. He picked it up, and he went about his day. Cause at the end of the day, he was an Adrian, and he was proud of that more than anything.
“ Remember, when you Root for Rutledge.“
“ You also Root for Adria.“
OOC: If this formatting spergs out I might just put it to the left.
Okay y’all, lets have a friendly election here.
I don’t want Adria coming to punches over this.
