Term Limit ComplaintEdit

Transcript

Transcript of conversation with resident:

"How can I help you, Sir?"

"Yeah, hi, umm... When is the Mayor's term limit up?"

"I'm afraid afraid I can't tell you that, Sir. The term limits are pre-determined randomly."

"Okay, well, then when is it my turn to be Mayor?"

"I'm afraid I can't tell you that either, Sir. The Mayor is also pre-determined randomly."

"But I get a turn right?"

"The odds of statistical probability give you a good chance, Sir."

Executive Order ComplaintEdit

Transcript

Transcript of conversation with resident:

"How can I help you, Sir?"

"Have you seen this latest executive order? No rock and roll music allowed? I'm a MUSICIAN. How am I supposed to work?"

"I believe the current Mayor prefers classical music. Perhaps Chopin?"

"I'm supposed to play a concert at the Civic Center on Sunday. A rock and roll concert! I can't go up there and play Chopin!"

"I'm sorry to hear that, Sir, but the executive order is quite clear. No rock and roll."

"When's the Mayor's term limit up?"

"I'm afraid I can't tell you that, Sir. The term limits are pre-determined randomly."

"Okay, well then when is it my turn to be Mayor?"

"I'm afraid I can't tell you that either, Sir. The Mayor is also pre-determined randomly."

Robotic Staff ComplaintEdit

Transcript of conversation with resident:

"How can I help you, Ma'am?"

"I wasn't to speak to a person."

"Ma'am, I'm afraid the Mayor is quite busy today."

"I'm not leaving until I speak to a person."

"Ma'am I am fully equipped to handle over ten million varieties of civil service complaints. Surely, I can..."

"I WANT TO TALK TO A PERSON DAMNIT!"

"Ma'am, please, you're disturbing the other residents. Now I must insist that you come back at another time."

Mayor for a DayEdit

Transcript

Evacuations are not going so well.

It's complete chaos out there. People got to used to robots and computers doing everything for them. People are literally running around on fire out there.

I"m doing my best, but really, I'm just a music teacher. I'm not cut out for all this.

Once everyone is safely out of town, I'm going to try to broker a truce with the saboteur.

Rumor is his hideout is somewhere in Bog Town. Might just be prejudiced heresy, but It's a place to start anyway.

Things are getting bad. Every time I leave this office, I'm less certain I'll make it back. But someone has to try to hold things together while we get everyone out. And, for whatever reason, fate put me in charge.

As a precaution in case I don't make it back, I've issued an Executive Order to update the automated mayoral selection process to simply except everyone who enters the room as a "Mayor for a Day." I figure that will make it easiest for whoever might arrive to help. In the long run that might be problematic. But we need all the help we can get if we're even going to see a long run.

As Mayor, you should have access to all the files on this machine.

If I don't make it, maybe you can find the saboteur's hideout and put a stop to all of this. People are going to need a safe place in the coming months when things inevitably fall apart. Watoga is the perfect place. Except for the berzerk robots. But if we can deal with that...

Good luck to us all.

--Barbara Elizabeth, 134th Mayor of Watoga

Supply CacheEdit

Transcript

I've managed to squirrel away a small cache of emergency supplies.

In case I don't make it, I've instructed MAIA to with old access until the robots have been dealt with. I don't want to waste precious supplies on more looters.

So, if you want those supplies, then you're going to need to help us!

Selection Committee Letter [Archived]Edit

Transcript

2/4/2042
Office of Mayor
Watoga, Inc.
Watoga County

To whom it may happily concern,

Welcome to your new position as Mayor of Watoga!

It's time to get to work. You never know how long you have until the selection process picks a new Mayor. It could be a year from now, it could be tomorrow.

Some may find these random term limits frustrating, most will find them liberating. Because folks don't know how long you will be in office, you won't be hounded by special interests and corrupt enterprises trying to curry your favor with bribes.

You can safely assume people are being honest and truthful with you. How lovely!

If you want to issue an executive order, declare a state of emergency, or simply talk to someone who understands the heavy burden of governing, speak to MAIA, your Mayoral Artificial Intelligence Assistant. Tell her what you want, and she will draft the appropriate legislation.

She's been programmed full of important and incidental information pertinent to the governing of a city. Maria's knowledge database comprises of decades worth of carefully curated news articles, court opinions, and legislature from all 50 states, and even some older data dating back to the middle ages. If you have a question or are ever confused about a possible course of action, just ask MAIA. She'll give you one to three good answers to choose from. But always remember, YOU are the Mayor, and all the mayoring is your responsibility, and yours alone!

And remember, because no one in the government is elected, and everyone is appointed with term limits decided by the Mayor, each Mayor is free to hire and fire at his or her own discretion. Furthermore, the Watoga Constitution clearly grants the Mayor's executive orders the force of law, with the single exception that no such law be made that curtail that authority.

How's that for a feeling of responsibility?!

What's next?
Relax! The day to day operations of the city are entirely automated! From the Sanitation Authority to the chief of security, all the small and big functions of running the city cleanly, efficiently, and effectively are all handled by carefully programmed robots.

This lets you and your administration focus on the things that matter to the citizens. And as a valued and respected Watogan yourself, you know exactly what those things are! By doing away with elections and instead randomly selecting citizens in good standing to serve as Mayor, we have made Watoga the most democratic city in the entire world! Everyone has a chance to run things, not just the politicians!

Now It's your turn! YOU are the Mayor Now!

And yes, YOU CAN DO THIS!

--The Inaugural Watoga Mayoral Selection Design Committee

Plain Speech LawsEdit

Transcript

From now on, all executive orders, and any laws or ordinances they create will be written in Plain Speech. The talk of the people. No more "henceforths" and "wheretofores" and "fortwiths" and "as pertains to" or "as stipulated in paragraph 3.1 in subsection whatever-whatevers." Now we talk plain. So normal people can understand things.

Verbal Laws and OrdinancesEdit

Transcript

Writing is hard and takes to long. You never know how long you'll have to be Mayor, so every minute counts. From now on, the mayor can make proclamations, orders, ordinances, and laws by clearly speaking them to his or her AI assistant. MAIA I want you to record all that as a law or executive order or whatever I need to say to make it really stick, okay?

Certainly, sir.

That all makes sense, right?

Yes, sir.

Good.

Sir?

What?

Do you want the executive orders to be exactly as stated, or should I edit them into concise, pertinent and actionable statements?

I think It's best not to leave anything to you machine types. I mean, these laws are for humans, so I trust they understand what I mean better than a robot would. No offense.

None taken, sir. And what about any clarifying, expositional or expository discussion or comments surrounding the stating of an executive order?

Look, just record whatever the Mayor says, and anything else that comes up while we are discussing it, exactly. Is that to much to ask?

No, sir.

Good. It's done, then.

Suck It, Future Mayor's!Edit

Transcript

MAIA. Make it so future mayors can't undo the laws I make, Okay? Like, they are permanent and can't be changed.

Sir, I'm not sure that order is possible, since executive order 341 signed by a preceeding mayor stipulated precisely the same thing and executive order 342 established that no executive order, law, or ordinance henceforth could be established that prevented future mayors from curtailing, adjusting, or limiting any previous Order, law, Ordinance, excepting itself and the proceeding Executive Order 341.

That sucks.

Sorry, sir.

Well how about this? Make this an executive order that you must pretend not to hear any future mayors who try to change my laws and to tell them to "Suck it!"

Certainly, sir.

So, that worked? You won't be able to change any of my laws, MAIA?

I'm thinking, sir.

So did my executive order go through, or What?

It's a rather complicated question, sir.

What's so complicated about It? MAIA!

One moment, sir, I'm conducting extensive review of legal and historical precedents, and running fairly complex simulations. Okay.

Okay, What?

Okay, the executive order stands.

Hot damn. Suck it, Future Mayor's!

Mayor for a DayEdit

Transcript

MAIA, can I make an executive order to change how mayors are selected?

I don't see why not, Ma'am.

Why hasn't anyone tried to do that before?

I'm not sure, Ma'am.

Well then, make an amendment to the selection process that literally anyone who walks in that door becomes the mayor for the day.

Alright. A question to clarify, if I might, Ma'am?

Shoot.

What happens if more than one person enters the room in rapid succession, or at the same time?

Then make them all mayors.

Certainly, Ma'am.

Oh, one last thing.

Yes, Ma'am?

Can you do that thing that other guy tried, where you pretend not to hear anyone who tries to change this particular executive order?

Certainly.

Even me.

Of course.

Let's try it. MAIA?

Yes, Ma'am?

I want to make an executive order making it so that mayors are selected once a week by lottery of all the citizens living in Watoga.

I'm sorry, I didn't quite hear you, Ma'am. Could you please repeat yourself?

Excellent. I'd give you a high five if you had hands.

Thank you, Ma'am.
