    Alex's Election Needs
    #1
    Shamelessly stealing this idea from Te 

    Because I'm a glutton for punishment  I love politics, I have two characters running in this election. @'Justus Pilliwickle' and @'Eleanora Brownhill'. Justus' official announcement will be coming in the next few days and Eleanora's will be after October 25th. Once the announcements are out, they'll begin campaigning in earnest. Each of them have different needs, which I'll outline below. 

    Justus 
    Manager: He knows nothing about running a campaign and will be running a pretty unconventional one so he's going to need a manager. He'll take anyone competent and dedicated, pretty much lmao.

    Campaign Workers: Justus is broke as a joke so people willing to work out of the kindness of their hearts (or a desire to see him in office) and campaign for him would be much appreciated.

    Sponsors/Endorsers: Justus' platform and his own personal beliefs limit the kinds of sponsorships he can get for his campaign. He's going all #nocorporatesponsors on this thing, so he won't accept money from businesses period or members of the UC who don't openly share his ideals (not that either of these parties would be rushing to give him money anyway lol). He knows that he does need money though so he will actively be looking for sponsors among like minded MC people. If you have someone who'd endorse him, let me know!

    Unfavorable News Things: Justus is a bastard and his mom (an unwed mother) was murdered in 1883. So yeah, there's a story in there. PLUS he's far left so his anti-UC/purist/etc. views could easily be exaggerated. There's the fact that he's young and only has experience as a lawyer, too. Go wild with him.

    Eleanora
    Assistant: Ellie is managing her own campaign because she doesn't trust anyone else with her ~vision, but she knows she can't do it completely on her own. The personal assistant would help her keep things organized, be a sounding board for her to bounce things off of, help workshop speeches, etc. Position will be paid and interested parties should apply via letter unless she already knows them and thinks they'll be a good fit. 

    Campaign Workers: Men and women who are interested in doing some of the leg work associated with running a campaign. They'll be making and handing out fliers/pins/other campaign goodies as well as advertising events via word of mouth. Other opportunities will probably arise as things go on. Since this would require a fair bit of work, positions will be paid (not like, super well, but they'll be compensated for their time). ACAB, 3+ reps, halfbreeds allowed. 

    Volunteers: Doing some of the work above but for no money lol. 

    Sponsors/Endorsers: Being a fairly popular author means Ellie has a decent well to draw from in terms of paying for things, but she'd definitely appreciate not having to fund the entire campaign herself. She'll be accepting offers as well as hitting up MC/UC friends and associates for some money. She'll also be looking for people with influence to endorse her so let me know if you have anyone who would do that! 

    Unfavorable News Things:  She's a woman with three children so I'm sure there could be people who are like stay home, take care of your kids, you don't belong in politics, etc. It would be easy to brand her as an ~evil feminist or w/e. IDK.

    Ellie should hit up 'August Echelon-Arnost' for money which he might give but he's also salty about almost dying so he also might not. But they can shoptalk politics and maybe he'll donate depending on how things go?

    @'Kieran Abernathy' has a long and extended history of heckling leftists and also works for the DP so... hi. Justus. Come meet him. Conversely, @'Overstreet Richardson''s political beliefs mostly boil down to 'ugh, rich people I'm not friends with' and he could probably be talked into supporting.

    HELLO, JUSTUS.

    I obviously have @'Dionisia Tweedy' who will openly support him because she's a salty LC feminist. I also have @'Simeon Graves' who could be convinced to support him if he was given evidence that he actually had plans at his young age (because Simeon is a year older than him and wouldn't imagine being able to run the Ministry at that age!). @'Willoughby Follywolle' is also UC but not a business person or even a conservative who might be willing to offer some sort of sponsorship to Justus! He's actually the DP quidditch correspondent :P

    Yup, I'm all for Ellie talking to August! Were you thinking they'd exchange letters and then meet? Or would they already know each other personally? They did go to school together and are the same age so there's that. 

    Oh please, I would love to have someone heckle/generally be a nuisance to Justus. And I'm up for any and all conversations with potential supporters.

    We already have plans for Dionisia and Justus >D. 

    I would love for him to talk to Simeon because he needs to start like, actually talking to people out loud about his plans and presenting himself as a viable candidate. 

    I'm not sure what Justus could do with Willoughby, but if I have any ideas, I'll let you know!

    Their campaign platform articles in the DP will have more information on specific issues and positions, but generally the differences in their campaigns can be boiled down to 'liberal' and 'radical'. Justus will focus more on mobilizing the LC/MC and class issues, with his events being geared towards that demographic. Ellie wants to have a wider appeal so she's focusing more on the issues that everyone's talking about as well as a few things of her own. Generally, she'll be more moderate and approachable than him.

    UGH I'M LATE

    Let's go for August/Elle already knowing each other! Do you want to start Overstreet/Justus and I could start August/Elle?

    Jude would totally be interested in talking to either of them (& I would love a thread with either!) because he is obviously interested in every progressive candidate's platform. If I remember correctly, I feel like we mentioned before, like ages ago, that Justus & Jude might be friendly anyway - if so, I imagine the Revs as a gang will definitely be hanging around to help support him!

    @'Porphyria Dempsey' has nothing really to do with politics but definitely has ~feminist leanings and has probably read Ellie's books and stuff. She's a radical-ish poet and UC so could have donated a bit of money to the campaign to lend her support!

    We did mention Justus and Jude being friendly, so a thread with them would make sense and I would very much enjoy it xD. They could talk after Justus' rally in the park or at the ABC/wherever.

    For Ellie, I'd be happy to have her exchange letters with Jude and/or Porphyria discussing things (in Porphyria's case, thanking her for the donation as well). She also has a slew of events they could attend if you were interested in that.
