Greater Baddow – Following the commencement of the GUM Chairman election cycle, Essexian citizen and MP Jack D officially launched his campaign to be the next head of the organisation.
His announcement was met with unprecedented and widespread endorsement—he has become a clear competitor in the race. His popularity among both veteran and fresh micronationalists comes as a surprise to much of the micronational community; until recently, Joey Kennedy had been the uncontested favourite to sweep the contest—however the reception of the Dean campaign and its manifesto has challenged this outcome.
Who will end up on top remains unclear. As of present, Dean has the endorsement of more than 11 GUM micronations, and has the support of many more delegates within the organisation and beyond. Joey’s support is strong too, having secured the vote of respected micronations like Misberia. Key heavyweights like Adammia and Abelden are yet endorse either side.
Here are some key comments from micronationalists about the Dean campaign so far;
I will be endorsing Jack Dean for Chair.Henry Clemens, former GUM Chairman.
I’ve known Jack for a while now, and I can say without a doubt, he’s the most professional and kind micronationalist I have come across. There is no better person to undertake the important job of GUM Chair than him this election. I wish him the best of luckMatthew S, current GUM Vice-Chairman
