If you have not voted yet because you are confused, do not care, or (somehow) did not know it was happening, you should probably read this. Summer election season is here, and with it, a new batch of state representative candidates! To help you wade through the sponsored advertisements, campaign posters, and general propaganda, here is a brief overview of each of the candidates, their positions, experience, and one sentence each of them would like you to know. 

State representatives are also known as congressmen/women. It is their job to represent the people of the state they work into the upper echelons of government. Your state representatives should be your first point of contact for any legislative issues you wish to raise, as these are the people who write the bills. 

As defined by the state,

STATE REPRESENTATIVES are responsible for drafting and passing State Laws, Acts, Edicts, Procedures, Resolutions, Criminal Punishment, Endorsing Civil Appointments, and other tasks.

Representatives will be expected to attend a mandatory monthly ‘Legislative Meeting’, and bring forth proposals for discussion on behalf of the good people of San Andreas.


Disclaimer: Candidates are sorted alphabetically by surname to avoid any implication of bias.

Jacob Wheeler

Political Party: Independent

Jason Wheeler

Policies:

  • Work to pass legislation making open carry of shotguns legal. Everyone does it anyway. 
  • Cannabis law reform – increasing the number of joints someone can legally carry – 5? We are joking, right?
  • Pluto is a planet. Will put forth legislation that officially recognizes Pluto as being a planet in San Andreas.
  • I intend to hold my colleagues in Government truly accountable. This is not just a hobby – these are elected positions responsible for representing you – the people – and we should earn these positions and the salaries that come with them. If you do not do the job – get out of the way of those that will.

Experience: Served a term as Lt. Governor

For the Voters: If I am elected State Representative, I will pay the good people at Euphoric Cannabis to come down to the City Hall lawn and roll free joints for everyone for an hour so we can burn it down and share ideas, and I can hear directly from the people what they want from their Government.
