On September 8, 2019, Sofia Kulasooriya dropped out of the Senatorial race in New Hamburg. The surprising thing is that she was uncontested, leaving no candidate running. This is leading many in Hurliherzistan to ask the question, "Will New Hamburg be unrepresented after the upcoming election?" If this does come to pass, it will sadly lessen the legitimacy of the government and weaken the democratic process. The Grand Magistrate and Supreme Consul candidate, Jack Herz, has issued a statement encouraging those in Provinces without Senatorial candidates to run.
