Dear Residents,

The election will take place next weekend, beginning on Friday, June 10th 2.00pm SLT, ending on Sunday, June 12th midnight.

Right before the election weekend officially begins, we’ll have an electoral meeting on Friday, June 10th at 1.00pm SLT (PDT) at our Lionheart Chamber of Commerce Meeting Room, where you can meet the candidates, hear about their program and ideas for the CoC, and ask questions. At 2.00pm SLT the voting officially begins.

The Candidate’s Introduction

Every candidate has prepared a text where they introduce themselves to you and tell you a bit about their ideas for the CoC. Please don’t hesitate to contact the candidates in-world if you want to get to know them and ask them further questions if you have any.

Fabiano Ferina

Hello, i’m Fabiano Ferina.

I’m 23, and currently living in Malta. I’m an open minded person and have lots of spirit and ideas. In Second Life, i’ve been since November 2009, and with Lionheart since late 2010.

I have a good knowledge of building, scripting and other Second Life related activities.

Currently i own a small business, that provides building solutions, like prim-saving products, building aids, gadgets, custom builds & scripts, and more. Walk into my store, and you may ocasinally find other random products that i create, like decor, vehicles, etc.

I consider myself a somewhat succesfull business man, since the business that i own, supports most of my Second Life income. Together, with every Lionheart merchant, i will do my best to build an active and solid comunity, that everyone can benefit from. Afterall, every business has room for improvements, and who else can offer better help, than another business..

Talisien Llewellyn

Hello, My name is Talisien Llewellyn and I have been a resident of Lionheart since September of 2010. I own October Alchemy located in Lionheart Nuka. I have owned and operated many different businesses within Second Life since 2007 and have extensive Real World business experience.

What I intend to do if elected as Chamber of Commerce Chairman is make the Chamber of Commerce more involved with the merchants and more active than it has been since I have been here. I plan on organizing workshops for all of our merchants to attend. These workshops will cover many different aspects of running a business such as Marketing, Setting land options correctly, Building, and many more topics.

As many of you probably know, our current Chairwoman, Sookie Slafford, has organized the “Roaring Reductions” event. If Elected, I not only plan on continuing this program, but organizing many more like it for our Merchants. I have organized many grid-wide hunts, and plan on organizing some just for Chamber of Commerce Merchants.

In Closing, let me state that no matter who you vote for, without your involvement in the Chamber of Commerce, it doesn’t matter what is promised. Lionheart is the only Estate that I have been to with a community like the one we have. When we all become involved and strive to set ourselves above the others, we will succeed. As merchants, you know your businesses best. If you have an idea that you think will help the community, I implore you to speak up and let yourself be heard. I for one will always be willing to listen.
