[Glaslyn] [Lindenwood] Lindenwood business and Baronial selection.

HL Chiara Franscesca,

Yes, I had seen that information on the Steppes website.

However, there is nothing posted that says we can't have pictures and
letters of intent posted on the website after February 15th, the final date
to declare intent.

Other Baronies have done it. Recently.

I am merely inviting the candidates to speak before our Canton populace
because many of our folks may not be able to travel to wherever the Baronial
polling will take place. There will be no candidates speaking for themselves
at the polling, so this meeting on the 21st  will give them an opportunity
to speak, greet, and kiss the babies:)

Where is the polling taking place?  Is there a site available that is large
enough and centrally located enough for our widespread and far-flung
populace to attend?

As an aside.......
In the past, Cantons have been able to send their sealed polled opinions to
the Baronial polling in the hands of a representative. Is this not going to
be allowed for Steppes? I guess I will have to contact the Kingdom Seneschal
for the answer to that question.

In Service,

Mistress Xene Theriane

As per the instructions set out by our Baron and Baroness and the Kingdom
Seneschal (which is posted in full on the Baronial website already):
a.. Friday, February 23, 2007: The final opinion poll form with candidate
names is posted to the baronial website. Brief, single-page candidate
letters with full contact information are also posted to the website.
The full letter is on the website, you just have to scroll down to read the
