    I noticed that the majority of the towns, are governed by people who do not play, or set town buffs. This is highly irritating as elections are not until may. I have emailed our EM but no response. Anyone have any idea how we can get this addressed? When bringing it up to Mesanna, she just told me to get ahold of our em.

    If you want to see about becoming a governor (currently, only Yew and Britain have active governors), have adored or better standing in your city of choice, be a citizen of the city, and talk to Topaz after the next meeting. Provided that your account is in good standing, you can typically get made a governor within 2-3 weeks (if not right away). Do note that the character that becomes governor must remain a citizen of the city, and cannot cross-shard while governor (I use one of my crafters to do all my cross-sharding).

    Reminder: There were apparently a city or two where people ran for the office, were elected, but never accepted. You don't officially become governor if you win an election until you go to the city stone and accept the position.

    I, who goes by Johnny Tsunami, here by announce my run for VESPER Governor. Originally I was going to run for Skara Brae, but the people of Vesper have spoken, and I am Adored there. I shall be attending the meeting next Saturday for my petition to run for said town's Governor. I encourage all those who are interested in other cities with inactive government to be there as well..

    I have been personally recommended by a good friend More Cowbell, who unfortunately has other arrangements (like accidentally leaving his citizenship and having a funky stupid name for a position like this :) )

    I'm offering for Moonglow. Elessa is 'adored' there and I've always had a mage as a citizen there! If I can be of assistance as a governor, I will do it!

    I am the mayor of Luna. Gorrow likes to stand around the bank and tell people that he is the mayor, but don't believe that damn liar.
