My Campaign Speech ~ The Results of the Election
I ran for VP today, it was one of the scariest things I've ever done, I thought I was going to die. I didn't though, and this is the speech I gave my class. The results will be announced tomorrow morning, and coincidentally, I sit next to one of the other candidates (he ran for president) and we can panic about the results tomorrow morning, lol.
My First Draft
I want you to vote for me because I believe that together, we can lead the class of 2018 to greatness. Iâ€™m not going to spend twenty minutes rewording this over and over, because as I said, I donâ€™t like unnecessarily long speeches either. I will elaborate a bit though, because really, whereâ€™s the fun in a campaign speech if you donâ€™t get to bore your audience a little?
If elected, I would work together with my fellow officers to make sure that our class has the best freshmen year possible. My first priority will be to make sure that you all have fun. In my opinion, thatâ€™s the first rule of life. I will help them come up with new and exciting fundraisers to benefit our grade. For example, as some of you know, Iâ€™m huge on haunted houses â€“ I love planning them, and I love being in them. A haunted house could be a huge money maker, as well as being incredibly fun for all involved. And Iâ€™m sure you have plenty of ideas too. Iâ€™m a pretty easy person to talk to, if you get me when Iâ€™m not exhausted, and I would be more than happy to hear your ideas and take them to the other officers.
Another fun fact about Kathleen? I always put my best effort into everything. If youâ€™ve ever worked on a group project with me, youâ€™ll know that I am not one to slack off on them. I do whatever I need to in order to make sure that our group gets the best grade possible. As vice president, my values will not change. I will always put my best foot forward and make sure that everything that the class of 2018 puts its name on is high quality and the best it can possibly be. Everything that the class officers do will be organized, efficient, and perfect, because thatâ€™s what the class of 2018 is. We are the best, itâ€™s an undisputable fact.
I think Iâ€™d be the best choice for your vice president because unlike many
Iâ€™ll be honest with you, Iâ€™m not a very good public speaker, as Iâ€™m sure you can see right now. Around now, I know that Iâ€™d be getting bored hearing this, so Iâ€™ll say one thing more before I leave you in peace. I want everyone in this room to leave this room knowing that theyâ€™ve voted for the best candidates in the room. In your eyes, that may not be me. I hope it is, if I didnâ€™t I wouldnâ€™t be here talking to you. When you vote for your chosen candidate, I want you to choose with having let social boundaries get in the way. Votes are anonymous, no one has to know. But donâ€™t just vote for your friends, vote for the person here that will do everything in their power to make sure you have the best time ever. As Joseph Stalin once said, â€œI believe in one thing only, the power of the human will.â€ Keeping in mind what I have said about anonymity in voting, I hope it is your will, as the class of 2018, to elect me as your vice president.
