"It's time that we stop being ruled by politicians, disconnected from reality and the real world; outside of their mansions built off the people's tax dollars. And today, we don't have politicians up here speaking from their wallets, but a person speaking from her heart, as I have lived and will continue to live as a contributing citizen to this wonderful nation." —Helen W. Jimenez's inaugural address

Helen W. Jimenez is the 6th and current Grand Abacoan president. She was elected in 2020, on a centrist, Abacoan conservative agenda. With over a 1/2 majority in the vote, she was most popular candidate to ever win presidency, besides Thomas Allen in 1980 and again in 1984. She succeeded James H. Walker as president of Grand Abaco.


















Early Life
H. Jimenez was born in West End, West Grand Bahama on March 13, 1979, in the West End Bayfield Hospital. Her father, an immigrant, from what is now in Eluthania, and an architect, was of a high stature in Pre-Independent Grand Abaco. Her mother, a native to Halinese Caribbea, was born in Dia, Valdaz, and moved to Freeport, Halinese Caribbea, with the two meeting in 1976, and marrying in 1977. Living in West End for the first year of her life, the family would move to Medan, Halinese Caribbea, seeing the gaining independence movement in the Abaco Archipelago.

She attended Hanschn High School, in Medan, for her freshmen and sophomore years, with the family moving back to what would be Freeport, Grand Abaco in 1995. They would continue to move around, not fully staying in one place until 1997, where they finally settled down in Hopetown. She would redo her last two years to catch up on the missed classes, graduating one year early. She would soon attend the University of Grand Bahama, Pelican Bay, for 4 years, learning business administration and finance.

Life

Jimenez enlisted into the Air Force right after graduating UGBPB, at the age of 23, in 2002. Within her 11 years of service, she saw the rise and fall of empires and dictators, and regularly aided in disaster recovery and cargo transport. She would eventually be awarded the Presidential Honor Unit, for her and her fellow unit's work and adaptability.

After her time in the military, she pursued one of her passions, working on the bridge of a cruise ship, like the ones she would often go on, in the summertime in between school. Within her first year, she had gone from Assistant Cruise Director, to the Head of the Hotel Administrative team. She would stay in this position for the majority of her stay at Princess Cruise Lines Corporation, until she was promoted to First Officer, although she would leave within 6 months of the promotion. After her stay in the cruise industry, she switched gears and started campaigning in Hopetown. From her extensive time living there and participating in the community, she was graciously accepted as Lieutenant Governor of Hopetown, becoming Governor the next year. She would continue to hold this place for another two years, until her ascendency to President of Grand Abaco.

Presidency
Jimenez started her term on August 20, 2020, with Brian Montgomery as her running mate. She won in a landslide victory.

Policies
During Jimenez's presidency, she has enacted a couple major ones since her inaguration

  • Military Volunteers, 2020 (2020 Regulation of Military Volunteers and Support Forces. )
    Seeking for a way to help intervene in wars and aid allies in battle, the 2020 Regulation of Military Volunteers and Support Forces Act was drafted and became legislature by the Congress of Grand Abaco on October 4, 2020. This act established the ability for the Grand Abacoan government to either ask or have the Branch Command ask the congress to allow volunteers, without getting Grand Abaco to participate in the war directly. This bill came with little resistance, and has been put into use twice since the signing of the legislation.

  • Legalization of Marijuana, 2020 (Marijuana Openness Act)
    The legalization of marijuana came on November 17, 2020. This act would also allow anyone charged with possession of marijuana to be let out of prison, unless they had the intent to sell. Otherwise, the act has many restrictions, including, only government authorized venders can sell marijuana, marijuana is illegal in the possession of a felon, within the vicinity of restricted areas like hospitals and schools, and more. While barely passing in the Congress, the act is expected to cut possession charges by over 25%. Marijuana stocks were allowed onto the CHSE shortly after.

Political Opinions
Jimenez is an Abacoan conservative an. She believes that the Grand Abacoan Constitution should be upheld, protecting the citizens and peoples of Grand Abaco, while expanding civil rights and liberalizing many systems within the country.

Pro and Anti

  • Pro: Free market, capitalism, democracy, patriotic, human rights, gun rights, marijuana, civil rights

"Every Grand Abacoan deserves the rights to freedom, liberty, property, prosperity, security, the pursuit of happiness, and much, much more for we are a people's whom don't uphold these basic rights, we, as a nation are nothing." —James H. Walker's inaugural address

James Howard Walker is the 5th Grand Abacoan president. He was elected in 2012 and was reelected in 2016 on a patriotic and conservative agenda. He ended his second term in 2020. He succeeded Christian Dole as president, with Helen Jimenez succeeding Walker.


















Early Life
J. Walker was born in a child's hospital in Cooper, a city in southern North Abaco in late November of 1984. His mother was a surgeon at the Cooper Children's Hospital, while his father was a pilot and a volunteer firefighter. In his early childhood, James was said to be very interested in politics and debating with his closest friends.

He attended Cedar High School and was the president of the debate club winning the Outstanding Debate Award in his Junior and Senior years. After graduating Cedar H.S, he studied Politics and Law at the University of Abaco, Abaco City in 2006. As per mandatory military training, James went to the Grand Abaco Coast Guard and enlisted for six years when he left as a lieutenant to pursue his dreams of politics. While campaigning for presidency, he was still in the Coast Guard only two months before his inauguration.

Life
James enlisted in the Coast Guard after graduating from the UoA in 2006 and was accompanied by his future wife and many friends he had made along the way. In 2010, James was awarded the Coast Guard Medal, for distinguishing himself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy, through the recovery of North American Airlines Flight 754, and the selflessness he displayed during the sinking of the M.S. Harbor Sound, by going on board a sinking vessel and saving 42 civilians without any order or command to do so.

While in 2004, at UoA, he met Diana Hubert, who was studying astrophysics. Not long after, they began to date although military conscription hindered multiple date nights. In 2008, James proposed to Diana, whom was also in the Coast Guard and they married in February of 2009. While on their off time, they would scout future homes and decided on one in East Port, East Grand Bahama. By 2010, they already bought their dream house and were expecting a newborn. Unbenounced to them until getting an ultrasound, they had twins.

Whilst 2011 rolled by, James still in the Coast Guard, but he was campaigning for his presidency when he was dismissed from training early. Although he arrived late on more then a few occasions, he was beloved by the populous. As the ballots were cast, Walker was the leader by a good margin. Only weeks before he was to be inaugurated into office, he left the Coast Guard. He was the rank of lieutenant during his leave.

Presidency
Walker started his term on August 20th of 2012 with Juan Sannity as vice president. He was reelected with Juan Sannity again as vice president in 2016.

On July 23rd of 2019, President Walker was shot in the chest while on his way to the Capital Building by an Oslandian national. As the gunman fled, Walker was taken to Freeport Medical Center and he undertook an eight hour operation extracting the bullet, and stopping the internal bleeding. The gunman had entered Grand Abaco by seeking refuge from the Olands Civil War. The gunman, later identified as Andrey Hoavy shot the president with a .22 caliber round from a handgun he hid in his jacket. The president made a full recovery. On August 20, 2020, President Walker ended his terms as president of Grand Abaco.

Policies
During Walker's presidency, he has enacted many policies. The most notable are the;

  • Creation of a National System of Defense and Security, 2012 (2012 National Defense Act)
    The creation of the GRAND system and a national defense security plan in case of war. The act allows the Grand Abacoan government to partner and create new systems for the civil and national defense of any attack upon Grand Abaco whether it be naval, aerial, nuclear, or intercontinental. The act also established multiple other projects, including Operation Sky Shelter, and Project Last Stand. Although many of them are classified, they have been sourced from the creation of the act.

  • Establishment of a Space agency, 2014 (Grand Abaco Space Act)
    The establishment of a Grand Abacoan space agency to create an international communications presence and to establish a possible national defense system through the means of space or earth orbit. This act created the Grand Abacoan Space Agency which has started testing spaceflight since mid-2019.

  • Amending the National System of Defense and Security, 2017 (2017 National Defense Act)
    The establishment multiple programs and the amending of the 2014 act. This act created the Vault initiative, and the private contracting of The Shelter Co. to create 250 vaults throughout Grand Abaco, and a new 500 vaults for Ardens. The vaults are supposed to but yet to have been tested to withstand a direct or near direct hit by nuclear arms, but have been tested and confirmed to protect the residence from natural disasters which include but do not limit to hurricanes, earthquakes, sinkholes, fires, tornadoes, tsunamis, and landslides.

  • Ardens Statehood 2020 (Ardens Integration Act)

    The Ardens Inclusion Act which officially made the island of Ardens a state of Grand Abaco from the former territory. This one deal has multiplied Grand Abaco's population by almost 12, bringing it up to over 38 million. The act was voted on by a 70/7 majority. The act also created a new state, consisting of Ardens, 3 Commonwealths, and 8 new counties from the previous districts of the former territory.

  • Amending the Number of seats in Congress & Amending the Term Limit 2020 (The 19th and 20th Amendments)

    The second of the three landmark bills is the Increasing of Congress Bill. This bill will establish 69 new members of the House and 24 new members of the Senate. In total, 93 new members have been added to the Congress. This is expected to appease many Ardensians whom were seeking more representation in the Grand Abacoan government.

    The last of the three landmark bills is the Shorter Term Act. President Walker was opposed to the long rule of the presidents from the start of his campaign. Finally, after years of work, Walker signed the bill to shorten the term length. This bill does not change the two term limit. In this bill, the first term of a president has to be 4 years long. If the incumbent president runs again, they are limited to two years in office. A maximum of 6 years in office of president is available.

Political Opinions
Walker is a patriotic conservative, and a civic nationalist. He believes that the Grand Abacoan Constitution should be upheld, protecting the citizens and peoples of Grand Abaco.

Pro and Anti

  • Pro: Free market, capitalism, democracy, patriotic, women's rights, human rights, gun rights

Personal Life
Walker has a masters in politics and a bachelor's in law. He has been married to Diana Hubert, whom is a COO at East Port Financial Bank since 2011. They have three children, Clarence (9), Michelle (9), and Joseph (6).

During his college years, Walker got his certificates to fly, and all the way up to fly up to 240 passengers. During Walker's off time, he can occasionally be seen at airports flying for Grand Abaco Airways, mostly regionally in E-195-2s.

As his training was difficult and strenuous, Walker has eased his routine much since his days in the Coast Guard, but he still preforms 2 mile jogs, and a swim across from the Sunset Blvd. Pier to the Presidential estate, a rough 1.4 mile swim every other day. He can sometimes be seen with members of the Coast Guard and the Navy, where the president meets his friends and his instructors to help with daily assignments and tasks for recruits.
