Position you are applying for?
Press Assistant

Are you able to voice chat?
Yes! And I recently just set up a proper mic to have little to no issues with echos or anything.

What skills can you bring to the position?
As I have experience with debates outside of Democracy Craft on a national scale, I am an avid socializer. I can deescalate a verbal dispute whether it be in the media of the server or in the group. Also, as I'm on and not currently involved with the politics, as an active citizen in Redmont already, I can already get a lot research by the word of mouth about the political climate that I can apply to the position to aid my higher ups.

How do you believe you can improve the Office of the Presiding Officers?
Transparency. As I've chosen to stay rather neutral with parties of all sorts, I believe that saying it how it is and having the filter to apply citizen's beliefs is important. Having the Office of the Presiding Officers have a connection with all citizens, ( new or veterans ), ( politicians or miners ) is vital in all forms. As I'm new compared to other citizens and I've already made connections with lots of members of the server, I gain insight about people's likes, dislikes, knowledge from the press, etc. I can improve the Office of the Presiding Officers by taking accountability to include all sides of the spectrum.

Why are you the best applicant for this role?
I'd like to think I have a sense of authenticity as I am still quite new in the server. I've joined a couple of months ago and I have yet to learn, however upon the connections I've made in the server already- I think that I can be apply to supply information. I have the time to be thorough upon analyzing the press and media that is disputed out from the Office and I am ready to help and put my time into improving the Office upon my arrival.

Do you have any prior experience in political roles?
No, however I would love to be apart of the political realm of the server. I feel like this position would be absolutely perfect as I have experience both out of the server and in the server with the discussion of press / media for politics.

Are you able to effectively communicate with a team?
As corny as it sounds, there is no I in team. I am a team player, you have my word. As I am already working as an Event Coordinator on the server, it is vital to take into account that everyone needs to apply themselves and work in one notion. I already has started a company that is equally owned, and everyone plays an equal part. I am an evident thinker in the belief that all voices and efforts should be included and should matter.

Can you voice chat over discord?
I can 100% voice chat over discord. I have years of experiencing with VCs with all sorts of reasons in the case of technical difficulties or verbal disputes.

How active are you?
I am on about everyday, however moving forever I should be online from 6 PM and onwards. I am however on all day on the weekends.

What time zone are you?
EST

Additional Information?
Thank you for reading!

Clerk

Are you able to voice chat?
Yes. I currently have TeamSpeak and Discord, and I am willing to download other software if necessary.

What skills can you bring to the position?
As someone with a large interest in Government and Politics, I have learned a lot about how procedure and order works in legislative bodies, including the Congress of Redmont. In addition to this, as a long-standing Attorney and former Judge, I am able to remain unbiased when asking others to perform their duties, such as when asking members to vote on a specific bill or motion. Also, from my experience in the Executive, I can easily keep sensitive information contained within the body that it should be presented to.

How do you believe you can improve the Office of the Presiding Officers?
I believe that as Clerk I can significantly help to reduce the workload of the Speaker, VP, and PPT. I am able to complete many different tasks in-game, on discord, and on forums.

I can perform any tasked asked of me in an efficient, professional, and helpful manner.

Why are you the best applicant for this role?:
I believe that I am the best applicant for this role for a variety of reasons, many of which I have stated elsewhere in this application.

I also am very passionate about the political system on DC, and would love to get back into it.

Do you have any prior experience in political roles?:
Yes - I served as the first Judge on the server and then Treasurer. I also served as Judge again a few months ago for a short period of time.

Are you able to effectively communicate with a team?
Yes. I have worked in many teams on DC, being the bench, the cabinet, and the staff team. Each one of those teams has helped me learn something different about myself and about how I can cooperate better with my colleagues. I believe that should I be chosen as Clerk, I will be able to work well with all of the other members of the office and members of Congress.

Can you voice chat over discord?
Yes - I also am well-versed in the technical side of discord should anything go array.

- Are you able to voice chat? Yes and I am 95% of the time able to speak. There is always the chance of a parent walking into the room to talk to me for a moment, in which case I will mute for that moment and alert those in the vc if I need to go.

Dang that's cheezy, but even if we don't agree with each other, I want to make sure we can at least be friendly towards one another. I am unaware of the current state of Congress in this way, but if everyone has an accepting attitude towards each other, I would like to keep it that way. I don't know if I can achieve this, but I sure can try.
