  1. State of San Andreas Official Press Release From the desk of Esme Sheikh-Wade, Director of Strategic Communications and Outreach: For Immediate Release to the General Public: Fireside Chats Ep. 2 - The Magnificent Month of June COLLABORATION BETWEEN SAN ANDREAS STATE GOVERNMENT AND LOS SANTOS NEWS NETWORK May 22nd, 2022: Episode two of the Fireside Chats began with the Secretary of State, Noah Wade, publicly congratulating the newly elected and the re-elected Senators. He proceeded to speak about the month of June, stating that he has been collaborating with Senators from both caucuses to "establish resolutions that recognize widely known celebrations for the month of June", dubbing it "The Magnificent Month of June". Later on in the episode, he further expressed his concerns about the recent issues arising at the ports, addressing the Port Authority, and liaising with Port Director Hank Preston about making amendments to the San Andreas Port Authority Act to further equip and empower the department. (Transcript of EP.2 - The Magnificent Month of June) [Noah Wade] San Andreas, hello again! This is your Secretary of State speaking, Noah Wade. Welcome back to another broadcast of Fireside Chats. These last few weeks have been quite the eventful bunch. We saw an interesting shift in our State senate, breaking the recent historical tie between Republicans and Democrats, shifting to a red majority. In no particular order, I’d like to congratulate publicly, our newly elected and re-elected Senators. Adrian Rossi, Diana Jones, Rudy Benson, Jackie Lu, Bob Williams, Tucker Meier, Scarlet Summers, Andrew Brandenburg and Joshua Shepherd. Congratulations Senators, make your constituents and your state proud! I’ve spoken directly with a few senators, to establish resolutions that recognize widely known celebrations for the month of June in a campaign of mine that I’d like to call “The Magnificent Month of June.” Particularly in the category of festivities, I’d love to see more national, community-focused events to be recognized. One’s we can come to appreciate right here in San Andreas and Los Santos. I’ve made a few suggestions to our senators for celebrations to recognize, Country Cooking, PTSD Awareness, Workplace Safety and even to the extent of further recognizing our Asian-American community. All of these ideas I’ve pitched to law makers and others in my office have seen a wide range of support, you’ll see more to come in local news as these initiatives kick off! Over the course of the last few months, our very own Port Authority has hit a variety of issues and brick walls that have begun to trouble businesses at the Port of Los Santos. Citizens and businesses have begun to suffer due to the lack of, well-.. Protection that the Port Authority can provide. A surge in Grand Theft Auto, vehicle fleets from companies going missing or being sold on the black market for parts, harassment, trespassing and so on. Director Preston has come to me many a time regarding these issues and has begun work on amendments to the San Andreas Port Authority Act. He’s informed me these amendments will allow for greater powers to deter and remove trespassers from the port, better oversight and the end result of becoming better equipped for crime prevention. Director Preston told me directly that quote “Citizens and companies working at the port need us now more than ever, I see it as my duty to ensure their protection and productivity to the fullest extent that the law permits us.” I wish Director Preston the very best in his campaign to amend the law, and I hope to see that hard working men and women at the Port of Los Santos suffer no more. We would like to thank LSNN for collaborating with the San Andreas Government to help make this show possible.

  2. I think rare cars should remain rare. While I don't see why certain cars should be locked behind a lease, Sultan RS, Elegy RH8, Tempesta, Ardent etc. These should be available to all, but cars like a RSX, Osiris, Furia, Nero, T20 (the list of cars goes on) are cars that should remain behind a strict background check, it should make sense for the character to have. Realistically speaking, the rare cars I speak of aren't obtainable by normal means of just buying one from a high end car dealer, you'd usually need to wait on a waiting list with said manufacturer for months to years, even after that, if you aren't someone known I highly doubt you could just go out and buy one. Hell, Ferrari don't allow certain cars to be modified and stuff. My personal take on the whole special lease thing is, keep the rare stuff strict but be more lenient with the sports cars. I don't see how a R33 Skyline is available to the masses but not the GTR. I feel like the argument of allowing all cars onto the server with no application would just create the problem of everyone owning a super car, it's no longer special. This could possible create another problem, Jane Doe ripping around in a Bugatti and racing it around doesn't exactly make sense, moderating such a thing wouldn't exactly be easy either.

Republican Senators taking their oath of office Democratic Senators taking their oath of office Shortly after the senators had taken their oath of office, the session was moved onto the nomination of the President Pro Tempore. Out of the total of eight lawmakers present, six had nominated former PPT Adrian Rossi, while the other two did not nominate. Minority Leader Diana Jones further remarked as she recommended her colleague from across the aisle, commending him on his "successful bipartisan cooperation" from previous sessions. After nominations were put forward, Sen. Rudy Benson motioned for a vote to be held. Without objections Sen. Adrian Rossi was elected for his second term as President Pro Tempore. Passing of the gavel, PPT Adrian Rossi (left), Secretary of State Noah Wade (right) Sen. Rossi, having received the presidential gavel, was designated as the chairman for the remainder of the session and recognized the Minority Leader for a short remark. Diana Jones stated the following: "As the longest sitting senator, I've watched colleagues and friends come and go. Brilliant mentors such as Frank Ernst, principled gentlemen like Marty Haney. Men and women that we have to thank for the state of our State. It's not the most common scenario that a Democrat nominates a Republican for such a position. But that is what sets us apart from legislatures that get stuck in their endless fights. We are the ones who work together.” “Adrian Rossi here has been a tremendous leader, a cunning politician, and a great friend. I am grateful to get to work alongside him again, and I have the people to thank for that. All of you who voted, who put your trust in all of us. There is much to be done, and our state is far from perfect. And yet, it is on days like these that I feel proud to be a citizen of San Andreas. Thank you, everyone, and thank you and congratulations, Adrian.” President Pro Tempore followed it up with a speech of his own, the following is what he stated: "Thank you everyone. Thank you so much, to the voters, to our Constituents, to my colleagues, and to those that supported me throughout this endeavour. I know that we've been standing around for so long, so I'll speak for just a minute before we are dismissed. — Well, we've given speeches left and right these past few weeks. Everything we have said reflects the principles of our Democracy from those that run to represent the People and those the People elect. All I can give today is my unending gratitude to those who continue to support me. There was overwhelming support. I cannot thank you all enough.” “Now is a time where we work together with one another, where we come together willingly and hear each other out. This is how civilized societies work. We will not divide, we will not be a source of harm for one another. At the end of the day, we're each pushing to do good. At the end of the day, we are all Americans! God bless the State of San Andreas, and may God bless These United States of America. Thank you!” Minority leader, Diana Jones (left) and PPT, Adrian Rossi (right) On behalf of Strategic Communications and Outreach, we’d like to thank both LSNN and LSPD’s H-Platoon for attending and securing tonight’s remarkable event.

  6. I currently have a character and a few friends that I RP a racer with. Majority of the time we're not even racing, we don't primarily base all our RP around racing. Some of us are involved with different factions and gangs. Most of the time we'd go to a "well known race track" and just do a couple of laps and call it a day before we park up and just start socializing. I feel like racing has become a very niche thing on the server and there's a lot of people who judge others who race, racers get criticized a lot and to be honest, it's for good reason. The majority of the scene is littered with people who simply just want to race, minimal RP, no consideration for their character and safety. Sadly this is what the majority of racers are. Being labelled a racer on the server feels like a bad thing because of the way people have portrayed them in the past which sucks because there's actually a lot of RP potential around it. The way I see it is that you need to have a group of people who don't just want to set lap times and do laps all day. The actual racing aspect should be more of a side thing.
