State of the Region Address

The Great Region of Texas officially issues Congratulations to each and every nation that was elected, that ran, that voted, that viewed these proceedings! These were some great elections as usual! None of the races were all that close, despite No Confidence running in all of them. They only received a single vote in each race. All the incumbents running retained their positions. As we mentioned earlier, the Texas Department of State has closed. It may reopen next Election. The Texas Representative Council race was pretty tame as well. The former Sec-O-State, A Mysterious Vagabond, is staying in the TRC even though he will not be in the Cabinet. We hope he enjoys a much needed rest after serving these last two long quarters. We hope he returns in the future. As usual, the President defeated No Confidence, resoundingly, we might add

Please join us in commending all of Texas for their participation in this quarter's Election! We had fewer speeches and fewer nominations than usual, but that is Ok. Nobody likes too much drama during Elections. Texans are still very much alive, yet older, and are a dynamic bunch even after all these years! Kudos!

Again, we had an Election without any questionable "moments" in the races this quarter, but that is a good thing. It was a nice clean race.

In this Election, we had several Texas Constitutional actions up for a vote. Three Articles were purely housekeeping in effect. One concerned ties, one removed an unused/unimplemented TRC power and one was about ejections. None of these were earth-shaking. However, there was an earth-shaking one, Amendment to Article XII, which covered the frequency of Elections. This Amendment changed the Quarterly elections to Triannual Elections. We are going from four Elections a year to three. The exact months have yet to be determined, but it would stand to reason that it would be four months from the last Election. The new Article on a National Anthem was trounced again. Texas is a rough crowd when it comes to music.

Big cheers to all the returning Texas Representative Council members and returning Cabinet members! Farewell to the departing ones, your service is appreciated and we look forward to seeing you once again in the future! Special thanks to all who ran and if you didn't win, we hope you run again in the future.

Overall, this has been great fun and a highlight for all Texans. We look forward to seeing how the new freely-elected Government of Texas will make Texas bigger, better and greater than ever! Cheers to the Great Region of Texas!

Long Live The Great Region of Texas!
