"Good afternoon,everyone. For those of you that don't know who I am, my name is Estella Tyrrell. Throughout the years, I've held many positions in the Ministry, such as Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and temporary Minister for Magic, making me very familiar with the Ministry and how it should run. My goal as Minister of Magic would be to strengthen the relationship between the Ministry and the people. I want to make sure that the decisions and actions of the Ministry will take into account the opinions of the people so that most people will benefit from them. I care about your ideas and I want to make sure they are heard. If you feel something should be changed, I want you to feel comfortable sending an owl to my office so that I can receive your input. Your needs are my priority. I want to make my people heard. I thank you for this opportunity and hope you vote for whoever you think is the best choice as our new Minister for Magic."
"Good afternoon, everyone. My name is Jade Knight. Not all of you may be aware, but Britain, Hogwarts, even all of Wizarding kind, are facing looming threats. The people need somebody who will go out and fight for them, and somebody who will try to prevent wars in the first place. I would do both of these things. I would do anything to keep my people safe. I know there are other candidates, great candidates, who would do an amazing job, but I'm asking you to give me a chance, a chance to both help you, the workers who spend all day working for our economy, and the students who will be our future. I will work hard to keep the Ministry of Magic safe from all kinds of threats, while I work to make our future a better place."

Regina FontaineAuthor -Author/Textbook Writer – "I believe the Children are the future"
"Ladies, Gentlemen - our ancestors founded this ancient institution, so that we may prosper and thrive, away from harm. We paved our way and we have been flourishing ever since. But I, I wish to lead us into an even better economy! More social justice! The seamless continuation of our education system and of course, protection from threats outside of our wizarding community! I believe the children are the future, an we need to be able to educate our children, not just academically, but with life lessons that they can take from the ministry, so that one day when we are six feet in the ground, we won't be turning in our graves, for we will know that they have taken the banner, and have rode forth.
For too long have we been stagnant! Join me as together, we create a new world, a safe world, where we can ensure the safety and prosperity of generations to come. Vote Fontaine. Protect your children."

I think her mind's in the right place. As I prepare to resign from my position as Head of the Department of Technological Advancement (which will be made offical when we have our new minister) I want to get someone out there who not only belives the children are the future but that we must continue to think ABOUT the future. That is why my vote goes to Regina. (OOC:Zan)
