Thank you for the messages of support.

I take some time off the NPC elections to speak on my behalf in the House race and present my official camapign song. It's Never Surrender by Corey Hart.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4pg6Jh94Lo

Reading the lyrics I can see some Atlasia parrallels.

So if you're lost and on your own, You can never surrender:
I'm not well connected so sometimes I don't know what is going on outside the public eye and often it feels like I'm on my own.

'Cause no one can take away your right, To fight and to never surrender:
your right could be the right to vote or the right to run for office, I'm still here and did not surrender

With a little perseverance
You can get things done
Without the blind adherence
That has conquered some

the blind adherence that has conquered some is a reference to zombie voters obviously!

Thank you for the endorsement.

I want to say that if elected I will be on the side of regions, to respect their role and let them have power. For example I think it should be regions that decide about schools. I thought that education was a topic we agreed should be left to regions. I read the federal government decides high schools must be kept closed because of covid or the conditions for primary schools to reopen, like how many students, how many days per week in the classroom. This should be decided more at the regional/local level if they are in charge of education. Local situations can vary greatly from one part of the country to another. I don't know if it's the difference between being in a unitary state or a federation but in North American federation provinces/states set those rules and I think in Atlasia it should be regions.

It's election weekend. I have already received a few votes. Keep them coming! People who vote Poirot feel great pleasure and a deep sense of satisfaction. Try it. Even if you don't like me you can do it for the party. It could help our local elections candidates if the party build a voting history in different states.

On the House ballot I'm the only candidate from Lincoln east of Illinois. So all Lincoln citizens east of Illinois, consider voting for me to help better regional representation.

I haven't seen any vote totals but I probably received the least votes of the declared candidates. I want to very thank people who gave me a first preference and who still believe in me. I want to thank those of gave me a hight preference like a second and a third, it could have been very useful if I survived the first round.

I congratulate all the winners and I hope they have fun. New members, don't wait to long to propose legislation because depending on the queue it can take some time to have your bill discussed and two months goes by quickly.

I try to do my thing, not personally attack people or parties, have my fun. Maybe it doesn't give great result but that's it.

Thank you kindly.

For what is worth, by my calculations you got 5 votes, accounting for 3.1% of the popular vote. For a candidate with 0 party supports (the Liberal party is a very small party) that is a rather decent result.

You also did fairly well in 2nd preferences but because you finished last those will not matter

I'm in Burlington in Vermont. People of Lincoln, if you follow the news you know I have filed the paperwork to be a candidate in October 2020 for the office of Lincoln Senator. Over the past months I have traveled in many states in the region to help the Liberal candidates in local elections. Many people I have met have suggested to run to represent the region. I am touched by such outpouring of support.

I have lived in the region for many years. I have served in the regional assembly, last year I served in the federal House, the next logical step is to serve in the Senate. It's not the first time I try. I think one needs more than two hands and one foot to count the number of times I have been candidate for Senate, regional or at-large when there were two ways to get elected.

I think I have proven that when elected I take my job seriously and I am active. I hope to earn your trust and your vote on election weekend.

I'm in Burlington, Vermont. After talking about my personal run for Lincoln Senate office, I also have a message to support all Liberal party candidates.

The Liberal party has a long tradition, it's been a party located between two major parties. We can work with other parties in trying to find common ground. We are a welcoming party. I want everyone to find a place. If the party were trousers I would like them to be comfortable, with a stretching elastic band you don't feel much on the waist, kind of a one size fits all. (With the overweight problems it is practical).

We want to bring people together. The pandemic has shown us that as a society we are all in this together. We need to work together to find solutions. Together we can improve society.

That is why I ask you to vote for your local Liberal party candidates in local elections, council, House or Senate in the next election.

Endorsed! I'd recommend that you give a vote to Poirot because if you do, you will have a active voice in the Senate respected by all sides.

I'm in Pittsburgh. I believe the party has great support in Pittsburgh. I am here to share my banner for the Lincoln Senate election. 


The group of people represent the concept of bringing people together. There are many hats because I have to wear and change hats in this campaign. I have to run for myself and at the same time run for local candidates. On the left, it represents my chair party hat. There is a sombrero that makes the dot on the I. And it can help get the vote of people of Mexican origin. On the right there is the construction hard hat. I'm going to work all for all people and the goal is to build together a better society.

The official song is Together Forever by Rick Astley.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPYZpwSpKmA

The message is to people disappointed by other politicians. I will have their best interest at heart.

If they ever get you down
There's always something I can do
Because I wouldn't ever wanna see you frown
I'll always do what's best for you

I was in Vermont to support local party candidates. The same principle of helping business be innovative and develop can apply to many industries in the region. If elected I will help get a more prosperous region.

I'm in Island Pond in Vermont at the Maple Guild. Vermont produces almost half of maple syrup in the country. There is an ooportunity to develop value added products and target niche markets to benefit our producers. An opening exists in products for the health benefit of maple as substitute for sugar in the health awareness trend, and because it contains antioxydants. We will support the research and development of new products and support the commercializing. There is so much you can do with maple. You can develop flavored water, vinegar, mustard, you name it using maple. This can create more jobs than simply selling a raw product. We will stand behind our producers who are innovative and show the versatility of maple. We will help to maybe develop the next big success story in business in Vermont.

I've just declared for House in October and arrived in time to participate in the House debate. I have experience in House, I completed one term a year ago. It looks like there is a lack of candidates for House. I think there are more seats to fill than candidates on the ballot with one week left. I Guess it is good news for our party supporters and friends who reside outside Lincoln and don't have Liberal party candidates in their region.

This is my October 2020 House logo. It has the same three hats as the Senate logo but in different order. One is the party chair hat, the other two are for Senate and House but don't know which yet. Also contains the obligatory house.


The campaign song is Burning down the house by Talking Heads.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3eC35LoF4U

I'm in contact with many people for NPC elections all across the country and when I campaign for other candidates I remind voters from all regions I am running for House.
