  1. Lolly Robinson Lolly Robinson says:

    If Charlotte wins, i hope she has a good VP. Not to be doom monger or anything…

  2. Josh Hadro says:

    He was sad because his new friend was so bloodthirsty.”

    Wilbur, ruminating on the choice he’s made.

    Charlotte A. Cavatica is just the strong and unapologetically bloodthirsty leader we need!

  3. I would like to nominate Claudette from Giants Beware! because she is such a go-getter.
    She has a strong vision, and won’t let anyone get in her way. She believes that it takes more than one person to achieve a goal, and truly believes in and stands by her friends that help her along the way. A free thinker, a brave girl. The perfect politician.

  4. I wish Charlotte won. 🙁
