His Illustrious Majesty, Lord Henry, has announced his intentions to take a government-sanctioned visit to Newton County in late April shortly following the new-Counties incorporation into the Commonwealth.
Speculation regarding the potential creation of a county in the area of Corpus Christi, United States had been occurring for several weeks before the decree was filed by Lord Henry on March 25th forming Newton County.
Much of this speculation existed do to the known fact that the Lord would begin making annual visits to the region this year with the Amoena Simphonia. Questions had risen over whether or not this warranted an annexation existed but were disregarded.
With the Amoena Simphonia, Lord Henry will be visiting Newton County for competition from April 27th to April 30th this year in a trip that Henry will be combining with a wish to familiarize himself with the Commonwealth’s newest addition.
The region is the most challenging when it comes to administration, being over three hours away from its closest counterpart in Essia. In fact, the Capital of the Imperial Federation of Zenrax is significantly closer to Newton County than any region of the Commonwealth.
“This trip is an important part of welcoming a new County to our Commonwealth,” the Lord said on Sunday, while adding that “Newton is a proud addition to Esse, and we hope to swiftly find the necessary representation for her.”
Meanwhile, questions on who is most suitable to represent Newton County are rising.
It is possible that the vacancy in the Wardenship could be filled by a current citizen. Though, considering the position of the County it is possible that a foreigner could be brought into the office to better represent the County.
Potential candidates for this office could therefore be any former member of the Federated States of America; citizens of the late nation are constitutionally entitled to citizenship rights.
This in mind, no former politician in the Federated States is actively on positive terms with His Illustrious Majesty. Brandon Wu and John Churchill, the two most well-known of the late micronation aside from Henry, are both no longer micronationally active.
Talks of someone – possibly even a local to the area – taking over the jurisdiction has occurred, however nothing has developed from it as of yet.
