A letter to the provincial assembly and executive
« on: May 14, 2020, 10:57:46 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.

Having seen no other feedback from other citizens of Florencia... I'd like to speak NOT as the Senator of our province, but as a member of the House of Shepherds.

I like the idea in principle, but I worry about its practicability. To what end will a new citizen become involved in Florencian politics? Most issues that may be entertained by the Shepherds would be either an exclusively national issue or an issue better handled at the national level.

That said, perhaps it could revitalize provincial interest(s). Might I suggest that the Ministry introduce new Florencian citizens to the Shepherds only after their bona fide naturalization, and then the Shepherds could merely take him/her on their wing until the next election?

I would be glad, regardless of the person's political leanings, to teach someone of the Florencian way of life and get them involved.

Thanks for this.  I think this is the sort of direction I will try to implement for all provinces.  Whatever the finer details end up being, I think, in general, things will take the form of guidance rather than law and almost certainly will be included in the upcoming new cit pack being released in the next few weeks.
