A letter to the provincial assembly and executive
« on: May 14, 2020, 10:56:55 AM »
To the Provincial Assembly and Executive,

Recently, a suggestion was made at a meeting of the Council of Governors by its member for Fiova.  The original text of that suggestion is as follows:

Quote

I'm going to throw a completely wild suggestion in here which might not only help revive our various local governments, but also solve an issue which has plagued post-Reunision Talossa; how to get new immigrants involved in a way that kept them around.

Time was that a new citizen would be given Cosă seats right off the bat to "get them involved"; however, in practice this meant that the ruling parties just tended to "assimilate" new citizens, leading to self-perpetuating dominance of a single party.

But what if we expected all new citizens to get involved in their local Governments? And what if this Council decided that every Provincial leadership would go away and draw up a Getting New Citizens Involved In the Provinces plan over the next month or two?

(Miestrâ Schiva, UrN)


The Ministry of the Interior now seeks the opinions of the provincial assemblies and executives on this proposal.  I encourage each province to begin conversations on this topic by whichever means and manner suitable and practicable to your local region.

Additionally, the Ministry would like to inform the provincial assemblies and executives that the Ministry and its immigration bureau stands ready to work with each individual province in implementing any feasible ideas to meet the aims of the above quoted proposal.

If anybody wishes to speak directly with me on this matter then I can be reached via PM here on Witt or by email at immigration@talossa.com


Yours for Talossa,

The Right Honourable Senator Éovart Grischun S.H.
Minister of the Interior
The Rt. Hon. Senator Éovart Grischun S.H.
Minister of the Interior
Senator of Vuode

I am all for this.  But think it might be more strongly supported with major renovation on the National Parliamentary level.  A Cosa with 200 seats can still be pretty readily farmed.

I cannot help but think that a Dearth of opportunity on the national stage would help deflect activity "downward" into the provinces.  Or maybe a time/activity cap for being a legislator.  I'm more than willing to spittball here.
