Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name: Kulunja
Character Name: Elizabeth "Liz" Faulhaber
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 46
Character Height: 5'4
Character Weight: 139
Character Position/Role/Job: (State) Senate Minority Leader
Appearance: Image
Character State of Origin: Minnesota
Character State of Residence: Minnesota
Character Party Affiliation: Minnesota DFL
Main Strengths: Energetic, charismatic, sociable
Main Weaknesses: Idealist, can be anxious, stark opposition to corporations (lack of funding), semi-innefficient legislator
Biography: Liz Faulhaber is an activist-turned-politician from Minnesota. She was born into a well-off family though lived around the working class in St. Paul. Their hardships, lack of charity given to them, combined with her seemingly natural caring nature influenced her political nature early on. She attended a diverse public school with many different groups, like the LGBTQ+ community, African Americans and hippies gave her a very open mindset. At age 16 she came out as lesbian which discouraged her traditional Lutheran parents. Their aggression and bigotry regarding her sexuality turned her to Deism. Under a foreign exchange program she attended university in Sweden for human resources management and marketing. Impressed by the Nordic model of social corporatism, she began to mold her political beliefs.

Prior to running for office, she worked for the Ford Corporation under their Human Resources department. To those familiar with her she was very compassionate towards the workers and pushed for their wage increases and better benefits at every possible moment. She retained her position at Ford for 16 years until her job's termination. She was fired because she attended a workers strike for higher wages and openly protested Ford. Given her track record as being rebellious towards corporate, she was fired and contract terminated. For the next year she would live under unemployment benefits before moving in with her companion and future wife, Rose Bloomingfeld. For 3 years following her job termination, she organized protests, spoke at rallies, and lobbied in the state legislature for workers' rights and other progressive issues. It would not be until early 2012 that she would seek elected office, however. Running for the state senate, she won the DFL primaries (incumbent retired) and won the general election in a landslide given her track record as well as it being in St. Paul. Since office she worked towards implementing many policies that resembled her experiences in Sweden such as passing a right to organize law and increased environmental regulations. She also attempted, vainly, to pass laws in favor of tripartite wage bargaining, universal healthcare, lowering taxes for the poor and middle class replacing it with an income cap, free college tuition at numerous community colleges and tech schools, and a carbon tax. Following the Progressive Party's falling out with the national Democratic Party, as well as controversies regarding corporate funding by the present DFL Minority Leader, Faulhaber was nominated and elected as replacement for the Majority Leader to unify liberals and progressives in the state

Looks interesting. We have a Governor in MN, so there could be some interaction there.

First thing is that the DFL is a minority in the state Senate, so she'd have to be min leader

There are labor laws to block firings because of a strike. At least ostensibly the firing would probably happen after with another reason given to avoid litigation

She's pretty young and new to get a leadership. You generally see a lot more experience and age to get to the top like that.

Perhaps!

Ok

Maybe, though how long have such laws been around? Based on the timeline she was fired in...... 2008. If need by I can think of a new reason too

Would it be required that I nerf her in order to get accepted?

1935.

In 2009, however, Ford agreed to a no-strike clause with the United Automobile Workers. If the timeframe could be adjusted to the end of that year, she could be terminated for violating that contract.

It'd definitely be nice to see her at least into her later forties, but she seems relatively balanced enough that's its not totally required

An earlier election date would be nice but if the strike is with the timing Pro suggested then it probably should stay where it is
