Sean served as the fourth Dictator of Willemstan. He was in power from the Winter 2019 Election until he was removed from power during the June 2020 Coup. As you may have guessed, his reign was very controversial due to the Willemstan 1.1 Reforms, which were mostly gutted after he was removed from power. However, the early months of his Dictatorship were met with widespread approval, so his overal reputation is very mixed.
Sean is currently serving as the sixth Dictator of Willemstan. He won the Winter 2020 Election.
Sean ran during the Winter 2018 Election, in which he was defeated and came in last place, earning only 10% of the vote.
Sean ran again during the Winter 2019 Election, in which he ran on joke policies such as mandatory water consumption. He narrowly won the election by a single vote, and thus became Dictator.
Sean ran once again during the Winter 2020 Election, despite the controversy behind his previous dictatorship. He won the election by nine votes, the greatest lead since the very first Willemstan election.
Sean has not directly participated in voter fraud, but he has encouraged it on several occasions. In the Winter 2018 Election, Sean voted for Eli Payton because "He kicked my ass at smash and I am compelled by honor reasons to vote for him.".

For the Winter 2019 Election, Sean voted for Andrew Batten, but participated in voter fraud for his own benifit. For the Winter 2020 Election, Sean voted for himself and encouraged vote outsourcing, which influenced the election in his favor.
