A letter to the provincial assembly and executive
« on: May 14, 2020, 10:58:18 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.

Distain and Minister of STUFF and Interior
Senator of Vuode

I don't know that you can force people to be interested in anything, no matter the good intentions.  I know that's been tried a lot, and it's never succeeded.  Every time there's been legit provincial activity -- here or in Fiova or wherever -- it's come from people just being interested in it on its own merits.  I'm trying to imagine the person who might enter the country because they're interested in the places with activity, and being told that they aren't allowed to get involved in those places until after four, five, six, or seven months.
