A friend of mine asked me to write his speech for student council. Four years ago I ran for president and gave a speech that was 'legendary' thanks to massassi. Hopefully you guys might have some tips so my friend can come across victorious. Feel free to make suggestions and rip this thing apart all you want. I need to have it ready tomorrow morning, though. Not much time to work with.
Oh, and the school name is "Paradise." It's a small Christian school with 250 students.
Brothers and sisters of Paradise,
money moves the wheels of history,
and this year I will move those wheels like never before
in the history of this school. Friends, desks and chairs will
tremble and shake with the triumphent roar of coins and cash
flowing into the hands of our excellent student council.
Things will get done and we shall acquire great things for all
people of all ages and classses within this family that is Paradise.
Things will be done, and they will be done for -you-.
As Franklin Roosevelt once said, "Happiness is not in the mere
possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the
thrill of creative effort." I feel that we can all embrace the joy of
achieving something great this year, and I know that all of our
efforts will bring a financial blessing upon the school if you
elect me for student council treasurer.
