Hands of Justice Chosen
Good day, Star Wars friends.
I am finally ready to announce my new Hands of Justice.
I do not envy people that have a job in human resources or otherwise have to hire people regularly. We had 22 applications for the Hand of Justice positions, the vast majority of which were extremely well-written by qualified individuals. I was blown away by the number of people that were interested, and only wish I could make use of everyone. In the end, with the help of Monty and BF, I reduced the number under consideration to four applicants and took a while to choose between those. That was a tough choice.
Without further ado:
The new Right Hand of Justice is Dacien Victae di Plagia aka Bubba. This former Headmaster is an excellent member and extremely hard worker. He got an edge on his application specifically because he is going to be needed as we make the new CoJ SA courses. I have always enjoyed Bubba and look forward to working with him.
The new Left Hand of Justice is Turel Sorenn. Mr. Turel is the current Consul of COU, but will easily have the capacity to serve in both roles. I have been very impressed with Turel over the last two years as we went through the Covenant project. His comments have been spot on and he has a passion for the judicial side of the club. One item I would like to address as to Turel: you may remember that he has a prior CoJ conviction. You may also remember that he was the person that brought the issues to light, handled his case with the utmost maturity, took a hit on the chin, and bounced back impressively. Especially for Left Hand of Justice, the LoR does not matter, and, in fact, gives him quality experience of having been there before so he can help members in a similar situation. I am glad to have him on my team.
The terms for these two individuals will last until December 31, 2017. If you applied this time and did not get the spot, please do not be discouraged. This was a hotly-desired set of positions, and the fact that I didn't choose you is not a slight, but just a fact of there only being two spots. Special thanks to Timeros, Pel, Lexic, Alaris, Arden, Halc and the rest of you for excellent applications.
Finally, a heartfelt thank you to Monty and BF for their service as my former Hands. They have been amazing and I will miss working with them directly.
