Here's the stuff you gotta know:
The mayoral pawsition may be held by ANY Blogville citizen, regardless of species or continent.
This is a 1-year term commitment that may be extended to a second year (but the rules clearly state there is a term limit of 2 years).
Job duties: It is the mayor’s duty to foster good feelings and fun in Blogville while helping to unify and strengthen relationships among Blogville citizens. Leadership and organizational skills will be helpful.
How to Apply: You can nominate someone you think would be a good candidate or you may volunteer to be a candidate. All names must be brought forth by the dead lion of April 15th! All nominees must confirm their acceptance of the nomination by that same time. No exceptions to this dead lion!!
How Mayor will be chosen: A secret election will be held and the candidate who receives the most votes will be declared the winner. The winner will be inaugurated in January.
Campaigning: There will be NO organized campaigns or debates (although candidates may do anything they want on their own blogs so the citizens can learn more about them). Instead, the candidates are asked to demonstrate their leadership, organizational, and communication skills by working together and organizing a Summer Olympics Event in August.
To Nominate: Put your nomination in as a comment. The nominee may accept or decline the nomination by replying to the comment or emailing the current or prior mayors.
To Volunteer: Either volunteer in the comment section of this post or email any of the individuals shown above.
A list of candidates who have either volunteered or accepted a nomination will be published on April 18th.
