Are cures being traded for votes?

Are cures being traded for votes?

Rumours have reached the Badger News that in certain cities cures, are only being distributed to people in exchange for votes.

When questioned about this, however, authorities denied the practice and stress that cures are being distributed in function of the city’s requirements and the distribution possibilities.

Let’s hope this rumour is indeed false. This would otherwise be a new low.

According to a statement from the newly appointed Chief of Police in Albany the “insurrection” is nothing more than a misunderstanding.

Meanwhile the Governor, City Council and your Badger News reporters are still barricaded inside the State House.

Ombie hordes cured – Politicians fighting to claim prize

Ombie hordes cured – Politicians fighting to claim prize

2 Ombie-infected hordes have effectively been cured in the city of New Amsterdam. The cure is currently being deployed by helicopters.

Meanwhile, the governor and the city mayor are fighting to take on the honor of developing this cure. There is hereby no clarity about who is responsible for the development of the cure and it might as well have been developed in another state or by another company.

Anyhow, most importantly: THERE IS A CURE!

Sadly, politicians still seem to be more concerned with their image than with curing their people.

Adirondack and Wabash will retrieve their filled delivery systems in a similar way.

Editorial – Politics, really?

Editorial – Politics, really?

In the past hours, Badger News has received a press statement from Governor Deurinck that he intends to run as vice-president to our neighbouring state’s Governor, Mr. Verbeek.

Really, this is what he has been doing these past days? Wondering who he should run with for the preliminaries?

As already highlighted in our previous editorial, one can only wonder what the people in charge are thinking. They are putting their own personal ambitions ahead of the safety of the people.

This can clearly not continue like this. We strongly urge our leaders to look deep and hard within themselves and come to their senses.

Badger News will not spend any more ink on the political ambitions of our leaders as long as the crisis is not solved.

We strongly urge our leaders to come to their senses and get their priorities right!

Editorial: who’s in charge?

The redaction of Badger News is more and more faced with contradicting communications.

On the one hand we have Governor Duerinck communicating about trying to recapture the city of Albany. On the other hand the mayor of Albany is telling us that they plan to evacuate all citizens from the city, while trying to keep all Ombies inside to eradicate them.

It is not clear to Badger News what the real plans are, but one thing is clear: there is no clear collaboration between the two parties.

As Badger News is being relocated, we can only see that authorities are struggling to control the situation. If on top of that there is infighting between the different persons in charge, the population is further at risk.

We ask one thing from the people in charge: do your job, keep people safe.

Northland: offering help or invading Adirondack?

Over the past hours, several statements have been received from different branches of the government with regards to possible involvement of Northland in the ongoing crisis in our proud state.

First there was the news about an airstrike that was supposedly taking place on New Amsterdam by Northland airplanes, which has been denied by the federal authorities.

In the last hours, the Governor’s office has been issuing statements about the possible involvement of Northland ground troops in the ongoing crisis. The latest rumours are that this operation would be allowed by the White House. The Governor opposed such an operation, as he is afraid that this operations is actually a hidden attempt at annexation of our state to North Land.

There are also rumours about troops from Northland coming into action within our state. It’s is unclear who has approved these actions.

Air strikes remain a means of last resort in case other measurements fail.

Communication from Albany mayor to all

Communication from Albany mayor to all

Badger News has received the following communication from the mayor of Albany:

PSA: Emergency Council meeting organisation

This is a notice intended for all political bodies in the state of
Adirondack:

The Governor has requested an emergency council to organise the
counter-Ombie efforts in the state. Due to continued concerns about the
health (and a possible infection) of the Governor, the Mayor of Albany is
organising an emergency council meeting by telephone. All invited parties
will receive the necessary information to join the council meeting.

The Mayor of Albany continues to care for everyone’s safety and health, and
by preventing travel and possible exposure to infection, state governing
bodies can continue functioning effectively.

We do not know if there are clear indications of the Governor’s infection or not, but it is strange in such a time of crisis to request all mayor political players to be present in person in a city overrun by Ombies.

Several parts of the government are concerned by the performance of Governor Deurinck.

This comes on top of the previous reports about the Governor choosing to evacuate his family and forcing the Albany city authorities to abandon key public buildings to the zombie horde.

In the opinion of Badger News, this can only mean one thing: the Governor is not fit for his job. How he ever want to convince people now that he would be qualified to run for president remains a mystery to us.

the State Hall, two major components of Albany society.

By giving the order to relocate, the governor urges the state police forces
to abandon State Hall and the Mercy Hospital, despite resident patients

Mayor Henk of Albany: “I firmly believe that it is irresponsible to abandon
core infrastructure of our city in favour of personal security, and we will
continue our city services’ efforts to secure our major services and ensure
continued care for the sick and ill. Not only is this important for our
city, but for a stable state as a whole.”

State of Adirondack announces new logo and motto (including typo)

State of Adirondack announces new logo and motto (including typo)

“We build our future togheter” says the state of Adirondack’s new motto. One would say that a state administration could at least afford a decent spelling check.

The banner with this new motto has been spread on behalf of Gov. Tim Duerinck and shows a soft pink-and-purple background with the new logo as well.  Particularly remarkable is the style difference between the old-fashioned text in the logo, “Adirondack – Liberty and Prosperity” and the motto, flashy in stylish white with a very modern writing error in this fast-paced society.

Furthermore, the logo shows a ribbon in blue and red with a bird spreading its wings.

There has been no further comment from the State so far on this sudden change of logo and motto. What is up here?

Update 11h54: The state’s press officer has stated that the above mentioned spelling error is indeed a mistake but there has been decided not to correct it as a sign of openness to imperfection: “Nobody is perfect” are his words.

Moreover, strange things have been seen around the State administration’s building: people seemingly running around mindless like a headless chicken. Might they have something to do with this utterly stupid mistake?
