Impawtent Announcement!!


Here's the stuff you gotta know:

The mayoral pawsition may be held by ANY Blogville citizen, regardless of species or continent. 

This is a 1-year term commitment  that may be extended to a second year (but the rules clearly state there is a term limit of 2 years).

Job duties:   It is the mayor’s duty to foster good feelings and fun in Blogville while helping to unify and strengthen relationships among Blogville citizens.  Leadership and organizational skills will be helpful.

How to Apply:   You can nominate someone you think would be a good candidate or you may volunteer to be a candidate.  All names must be brought forth by the dead lion of  April 15th!  All nominees must confirm their acceptance of the nomination by that same time.  No exceptions to this dead lion!!

How Mayor will be chosen:  A secret election will be held and the candidate who receives the most votes will be declared the winner.  The winner will be inaugurated in January.

Campaigning:  There will be NO organized campaigns or debates (although candidates may do anything they want on their own blogs so the citizens can learn more about them).  Instead, the candidates are asked to demonstrate their leadership, organizational, and communication skills by working together and organizing a Summer Olympics Event in August.

To Nominate:  Put your nomination in as a comment.  The nominee may accept or decline the nomination by replying to the comment or emailing the current or prior mayors.

To Volunteer:  Either volunteer in the comment section of this post or email any of the individuals shown above.

A list of candidates who have either volunteered or accepted a nomination will be published on April 18th.
This announcement has been approved by all current and former mayors of Blogville.

Oh my goodness, that time already. We in Blogville have been blessed with such wonderful mayors. Every one of you, in your different ways, had done a magnificent job. We so appreciate it (but probably don't say so often enough). You will be a hard act to follow.

Has it really been two years already? It seems like only a short time ago you took office.

M. K. Clinton said...

The Blogville elections are so much more fun than the human elections! BOL!

lexitheschnauzer said...

I have never been a mayor, only a Toto. But I saw how the mayor strutted importantly and made speeches in Oz. I could do that! Is there a list of mayoral duties? I already have at least 3 jobs, so what is one more. I should get the religious vote since I work as official dog at two churches, BOL. OK, OK, so I have talked myself into nominating myself. www.lexitheschnauzer.com

Murphy said...

We will add your name! Thanks for volunteering!

It makes me sad that you Doodz won't be Mayorz anymore...but then I think about how sad I was when Frankie left, but how grreat a job Madi did. And how sad I was when Madi left office, but then you Doodz stepped in so well. So I know the next Mayor will be amazing as well.
