Update on the Congress Agenda

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 14, 2012, 12:23 AM

Dear comrades of the CPDA,

I would like to bring everyone up to speed on the status of several issues. So far, the candidates for the Central Executive Committee are as follows:

The-Necromancer is running for the office of General Secretary
HERNZ4795 is running for the Commissariat of Internal Affairs
Party9999999 is running for the Commissariat of Visual Arts
KnoFear is running for the Commissariat of Literary Affairs
DeathlessLegends13 and renjikuchiki1 are running for the Commissariat of Theory and Ideology
The-Laughing-Rabbit is running for the Commissariat of External Affairs

Pending official announcement, comrade Velikorossiya may be running for the Commissariat of the Treasury.

I feel this would also be a good time to hold an All Party vote on the creation of a Commissariat of Environmental Affairs. Comrades have expressed keen interest in the creation of such a post on the Central Executive Committee, and I know the recently returned comrade Fatal-Nostalgia (formerly known as gl0wstick) has expressed interest in running for such a position should it be approved by the Party members. Expect a poll up to take vote on it with this journal's release.

Current nominees as Observers on the Central Committee include:


I would also like to mention that comrade LivingSoviet has stepped forward to find someone capable of revamping our journal skin. Thank you very much!

Continuing issues that will be brought up for discussion:

The effects of today's General Strike in Europe.
The change of leadership in the PRC.
Annual reviewing the CPDA's submission and membership policies.
Discussion on the Party's long term goals, hopefully with the formation of a multi-year plan to be carried out by future Party leaders.
Clarification of the role of Junior (Observer) Central Committee members.
Funding for the CPDA's Point Account as held by the Commissar of the Treasury.

As always, if any comrades would like to announce that they wish to run for one of the seven (maybe eight, soon) positions on the Central Executive Committee, please do so. Any comrades wishing to be nominated as Observers to the Central Committee, please do so.

Any other topics that should be covered by this Congress should be brought up, although we will soon be entering the second (and final) week of this year's Party Congress.

Voting for all offices and nominations will begin next Monday.

In solidarity,

CPDA General Secretary

If there is still time, I would very much like to formally announce candidacy for Commissar of the Treasury. I'm aware it may be a little late, but hey, Robert Kennedy pulled it off (almost).

said this on the last journal, but i'd lke to be nominated for observer status.

Sorry about that. I'd thought I'd been most thorough when looking over past comments. I had the niggling feeling I was missing someone, but for some reason I failed to notice your announcement.

Can I become the Commissariat of alcohol =3

I jest.

Its good to see people stepping up and keeping the group a well oiled machine.
The-Necromancer Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Comrade, so long as we have bottles of our favorite liquor, we all are Commissars of Alcohol! HA HA HA!!!
Velikorossiya Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I'm sorry, but I just had to say, I lul'd.
The-Necromancer Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
But it's true!

...the only question I have is "Why is the Guinness always gone?"
Velikorossiya Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I'm a fan of whiskeys and Volkov myself. I have a love/hate relationship with vodka.
The-Necromancer Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If I buy vodka, it must be Stolichnaya. To me, vodka must be Russian. Not that Gray Goose is bad either. With whiskey, I prefer Canadian Club, although Jack is OK. Bourbon, I'm a bit cheaper as I like Wild Turkey...

Guinness or Spaten Optimator are my favorite beers, but any "black" beer is generally agreeable to me.
Velikorossiya Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I can't drink beer. The taste isn't meant for me. Except for Keystone Light. But that has backstory.

I've been meaning to pick up a bottle of Russian Standard, myself. And I'm not sure I've ever had Gray Goose. My friends tend to buy cheaper alcohol. And if I'm going to buy vodka, I agree, it should be Russian. Or Norwegian. But only because I'd find that awesome.
