Acceptance Speech & Appointments

OMD, you would not believe how busy we have been since the voting results came in!  It has been crazy around here!  Luckily, we had a wonderful surprise when Sydney at  Chewy sent us a beautiful flower basket!  We gave it to mom of course.  That was so nice of them to congratulate us on being the Mayorz Elect.  Chewy REALLY cares about Blogville! Thank you Chewy!

Me and Stanley had to turn the room downstairs into a make shift office.  We are working so hard to get our administration set up so we can take over in January after the inauguration!

The emails have been flying and we're trying to figure out the best way to set up the administration so it helps everyone in Blogville and provides a better way of life (that means more fun).

When we walked outside the puparazzi was there!

OK, it's time for our official acceptance speech . . .

[Murphy & Stanley step up to mic

[Tap, tap . . . ] Check . . . check . . . OK, we're glad you all could come out today.

Thank you citizens of Blogville for having the confidence and faith in electing us your  Dood Mayorz!  Thank you to all those who had a paw in making this happen!  Thank you to our furst ever mayor, the esteemed Frankie Furter for setting the path for others to follow.  Thank you Mayoress Madi for carrying on that tradition with the utmost respect and pawfessionalism.  Thank you Dory for being a most worthy candidate.

Stanley and I want to formally accept the pawsition to which you elected us.


We are here today to tell you that when we are sworn in this January, we plan to hit the ground running with a new administration in place.  We will be ready to face the challenges of being Blogville Dood Mayorz.


In order to better handle the changing needs of Blogville, as well as its continued growth, we plan to make some changes to our form of government.  To that end, we are appointing a City Manager and a City Council.  We will also appoint Directors of various departments, as has been used in the past, to handle the business of keeping Blogville running smoothly.

Today we are pleased and proud to say that we have offered the pawsition of City Manager to our honorable and worthy furiend Dory!


On our Judicial Branch of the City Council,  we have appointed the Honorable Frankie Furter Price (judge) and his brother Ernest Schnitzel Price Esquire (defense/prosecution) to the Blogville Court of Common Fleas.


Also appointed to our City Council Office of Law Enforcement and Corrections will be the continued services of Sarge as Pawlice Commissioner.


And continuing his great work in running the Blogville Pawlice Department we are also appointing Top Cop SideBites!


In order to attract and maintain our relationships with our feline furiends, we appoint Mayoress soon-to-be Emeritus Madi to the City Council Office of  FLUFF Affairs (Fellowship of Lovable United Feline Friends).


In keeping with the need to understand the universe around us as well as what's the matter with matter, we have appointed Bouncing Bertie as Director of the Office of Scientific Affairs.


Because they proved themselves to be most responsible, reliable, and efficient, we are appointing our former Campaign Managers Bailey, Hazel and Angel Greta as our official Press Secretaries.


To emphasize the impawtence of getting to know our Blogville neighbors, we appoint Addi, PhD to the Office of Welcoming and Socializing.


We have MANY, MANY other pawsitions to fill.  All other appointments will be announced in the coming days  If you hold a pawsition in the current administration and want to keep your pawsition, please notify us as soon as pawsible by email or leaving a comment.  If you would like to serve in a Department or on the City Council, please notify us very soon.

Again, thank you Blogville.  We look forward to a fun and exciting future!

Murphy & Stanley

I saw Whitley and Finley mentioned a zombie patrol. They'd sure be able to cover that if there was a pawsition for that, aye?? AND Travis in charge of the bacon. I sure wouldn't be going there! That Travis is out of control as far as bacon is concerned. If there's an Aussie lingo pawsition I might be able to help out there, aye??
