    Ummm, I'm surprised no one else has posted this yet.

    So although Governors are elected, they are elected by the Governors Council. There is no GC, so it is an appointed position from the MoI. The MoI is absent, so the Deputy Nomad Bryce is in charge of appointing the Governor of Boaring Wallow.

    according to this thread, NB has appointed Chieftess to be the fist Governor of Boaring Wallow. Hence, I don't think there will be any election for this position.

    Their will be an election =] I think you have misread the law. They are elected, the appointment thing is just what happens before a governor can be elected. But now it is time for the first term of the governor. And an election must be held.

    As NB has pointed out, the appointed Governor, either by the Minister of Interior or the Governmental Council, is only in the office for the remainder of a term, in other words, for the time between the building of a city and the end of the term in which the city is built. From there on regular election takes place.

    I would like to nominate myself for the candidate of Governor of Boaring Wallow. Although I am relatively new to the demogame, I do hold the presidency of a new yet powerful political force, The Hawk-Dove party. I feel that I am able to do the job. Yet, because that I'm new to the demogame, I feel that accountability will be an asset, and I will rely on others to help accomplish my mission.

    Thank you

    You know, I haven't been a governor(ess) for a LONG time - save for DG7, of which I spent most the time testing Civ4, but that was just 1 city. In fact, I think I'll accept this position, and decline military.

    BTW, since the constitution says "city or state", doesn't that mean there could be more than 1 city? So it's not just Boaring Wallow.


    Anyway.... the campaign.


    I've been playing Civ4 for years now (*shudders* Where did the time fly!), and I'm quite experienced with the early part of the game, having tested many multiplayer games. I've even been governor in previous demogames, too, so I know the position quite well. I know the ins and outs of the game, and how to manage specialists as well.

    Except it also says the capital city can't be in a state, so this position is for just the city.

    I have decided to re-accept my nomination. And yes this is my last declination-accepting in an office and sticking my efforts into this office.

    I have been playing Civ4 for a while now and I have certanly gotten the hang of city management. As Governor of Boaring Wallo, I will micromanage the city to ensure that it provides production for our military and improvements as well as maintaining food reserves in the city.

    The build queues I plan to utalize will consist of building improvements and will add in any military units the military department requests to have. I will also alternate from building city improvements and military units to ensure a healthy ballance of improvements as well as military units. Right now, the City has a warrior to be compleated within 16 turns. I plan, after the warrior is compleated, is to build a barrack so that any additional land units are produced, that they recive four extra experiance points and will lead us to build the heroic epic later in the future. I will of course micromanage so that there would be more production so that the barrack is compleated faster by using the surrounding forest (No, I dont plan to chop them down, I plan to have our citizens work there). Once a Barrack is done, I do wish to build a settler to help in expanding our empire as well as produce warriors to export to other cities.

    My current platform at the moment is to ensure that we build a pasture on the pigs and connect them to our road network. On the topic of terrain improvements, I will preserve our forests since they are a good resource for production before we start mining any hills or building workshops.

    I have experiance from previous demogames (Civ3) and do have a basic grasp on the governorship from arranging build queues and micromanaging cities. After playing Civ4 for a while, I have a better grasp in micromanagement.

    Going to have to go with CivGeneral, he's proven himself inside of the past to be very capable and efficient. Add in that he shy's away from confrontation, he makes a rather uninteresting, but VERY good elected official.

    This place our city into capable hands this early in the game.
