    Cody was too busy to Vote this election. His great nephew Brandon, however, has scheduled a meeting with the campaign manager of whichever candidate wins at the Split Barrel.

    1. Alexander Murry runs for office and votes for himself
    2. Conscript my tenants to build a giant sports stadium in some open plot of ground since there's no rules. This will be the site of the city's first football team

    As much or as little as you want - within the realm of physics. Doesn't guarantee it will work though!

    WIM, Red, Gurra, and ButteryIcarus all are still missing orders. I won't get a chance to look at anything for another 4-5 hours at least, so any time before I start working on the update is good. I can't guarantee I will be able to respond to messages before then.

    Since Naduk Petersen is not a citizen of Metro but a foreign diplomat she is not voting in the ongoing mayoral and city council elections. She did however issue the following statement:

    "On behalf of everyone in the Republic of Tunu, I wish the people of Metro all the best on Election Day. Democracy is sacred and we obviously have it in Tunu too since I just said it."

    _____________________________________________________________________

    The first council elections in Metro have concluded, marked by a close race between mayor Jimmy Woodsworth and councilwoman Rachel Stridberg. Stridberg’s support - buoyed aggressively by the Citizens for Metro’s Future organization, which ran aggressive attack ads against her opponents - flagged in late leaks as it emerged that Stridberg-Metro Greentech employees had been implicated in questionable and often dangerous schemes to smuggle construction workers and civil engineers over the city-state’s borders. The third council member, Alexander Murry, was elected by a single vote - his own - due to the lack of additional candidates. Murry also came with his own controversies, having coerced tenants into constructing the Metro Football Stadium. The lack of proper materials and training resulted in an enormously dangerous process and structure, granting high visibility and success to Lucius Cole’s blood drive in an attempt to combat growing injuries. Amusingly, due to the American influences on Metro, it became obvious that many of the workers were not clear what kind of football the stadium was meant to host, leading to strange dimensions and artwork depicting feet adorning the structure, which now has become a haven for squatters due to the city’s housing crisis - which sees even wealthy citizens using their offices as homes, a practice civil authorities recommend against. Elsewhere in the city, Gibney Apartments underwent a recent expansion - also with a lack of trained employees, with authorities suggesting the homes might not be up to code, if one actually existed - and Brandon Marconi was observed with Jimmy Woodsworth’s campaign manager in the Marconi-family owned Split Barrel, up in the city’s North End.

    Call the police to clear out the looter thugs in my arena. Allow those with a talent for football back in, in exchange for an exploitative contract that'd make the NFL green with envy. With a large housing crisis, and the police protecting my private property, more aggressive negotiations can take place. This football stadium will be the site of a team that'll dominate the world of football one day. And all for the cost of as using as little of my own as I possibly could.

    Stridberg-Metro Greentech will be constructing the new government buildings at cost as our organisation has the most people with construction experience in it. As we will be constructing it at cost, we will be making no profit in these endeavours, therefore I am confident that there is significant no conflict of interest in this matter when it comes to my roles as Councilwoman and .

    Orders:
    • Continue to encourage people with construction experience to migrate into Metro and work for me, through the legal channels.
    • Run the people who are already here by the Metro Immigration Office to ensure everything is okay.
    • Do the following construction, map in spoiler. These projects may continue over multiple turns. Map Key:
      • X = Stridberg-Metro Construction, a construction firm primarily using Stridberg green technology to do construction things. Staffed by the construction people that I have. [HIGHEST PRIORITY]
      • A = Metro City Hall, give control to city government upon completion [SECOND HIGHEST PRIORITY]
      • B = Metro Immigration Office, give control to city government upon completion [THIRD HIGHEST PRIORITY]
      • C = Metro Mint, give control to city government upon completion [FOURTH HIGHEST PRIORITY]
      • D = Area reserved by government for further construction works, ignore for now.
      • Z = North Metro Apartment Complex, a place for people to live. Not the nicest houses in the world, but not a slum either. [LOWEST PRIORITY]

    I'm gonna drop out. Playing the foreign ambassador was a fun idea but I just don't know what to do with it.

    Jimmy Wordsworth, you know, the mayor here. We had a productive week here in the city, with variety of new construction planned out for further city expansion, as well as some codification of the electoral and legal processes here in the city. It does bother me somewhat that we do not seem to have a city court system yet, but disputes are being handled all the time at the interim mayoral headquarters here in the Union office, and we should be fine unless there's a gang of criminals sneaking around in thee center of our city or some serial killer.

    There's nothing like that, right?

    In any case, as the mayor of this town, I would like to inform the public that I will, of course, fulfill my campaign promises of making life better for both the small businesses and the public interest. Soon, the system of exchanging fish and IOU notes and foreign currency will end with printing of our first currency, backed by... I'll get back to this later. Secondly, with the construction of new housing systems, we hope to stop the ongoing problem of vagrancies and dangerous temporary shacks that are being seen all around the town.

    On a side note, support your local farmers and fishers by visiting the market by the piers. Thank you.
