First, I have to begin by mentioning that the reports coming out are unsubstantiated. The media is out to get me, always have been. My kind has been persecuted for centuries, and this recent turn of events is no different.
Everyone has skeletons in their closet. In my case, it’s literal. However, that’s to be expected as a vampire. Many centuries ago, we were rumors, whispers on the wind. Yet, over the years, we grew – along with the rest of the Altered Population – into full-functioning members of society.
I will be the first to admit that as your mayor, I know the laws. I should not have consumed those who were recently found in my closet. And yes, at this point, all that is left are skeletons. My arrogance got the best of me. I simply thought I could get away with it. But, these people were not alive when I found them. Reports that I am out stalking the night for living victims are false, hurtful and deceiving. I am only out to make this community better and lead us all into a more prosperous time.
So, here we are. I admit that I’ve deceived you all, but I deny any wrongdoing and deny any laws were broken. The media can lob these allegations at me all day, but I’m steadfast in my position defending my rights and my actions.
Lastly, if you believe that having a vampire mayor is troubling, well, the voters spoke years ago. I represent them and all of you. But if you want to fight, you know where to find me.
Your eternal mayor,
Tim E. Nourrir
