Well, that's a good problem to have...

The slates for the upcoming Baronial election were announced tonight; my initial reaction is that they're all good. None are obviously The One True Person We Must Elect, but none are obviously weak -- each slate has its own distinctive strengths, and I suspect they'd all do a good job. So at this point, I have absolutely no clue who I'm going to vote for when the time comes.

When the modern world is constantly barraging me with lesser-of-two-evils choices, forcing me to hold my nose and vote for the incompetent who isn't actually insane, it's awfully nice for the SCA to present me with a genuinely thoughtful and difficult choice between solid candidates...

ETA: since several folks asked, the slates are (copying and pasting from the Council Minutes, to make sure I get the spelling right):

  • Baron Colin Ursell and Maitresse Nicolette Bonhomme

  • Baronesse Aurelia Rufinia

  • Lady Elana and Lord Dedric

Like I said, all good folks, and I think they'd all probably do a good job...
