Kamau-Imani Appointed Election Integrity Chief

Sharon Macasil - Media Kamp, LLC.

In the aftermath of what can only be called a disastrous 2022 Texas Primary, the Texas Nationalist Movement (TNM) has created a new task force focused on Texas election integrity. Apostle Claver T. Kamau-Imani has been appointed Director of the TNM Election Integrity Task Force. Kamau-Imani’s recent post was as campaign manager for the 2022 Texas Lt. Governor candidacy of Daniel Miller. He currently serves on the TNM Advisory Board, is Chief Counsel to the President of the TNM, and chaplain. The 420,000+ members and supporters of the TNM are outraged at the conduct of the just-concluded Texas primary and the organization’s leadership team is intent on expanding its activism to include the issue of Texas election integrity. A Statement from Apostle Claver T. Kamau-Imani: “It’s very humbling and an honor to have fellow Texas-first, liberty-driven patriots continue to call on me to play critical roles in our collective activism. I want to express my gratitude to the TNM brain trust for expressing such confidence in my leadership abilities. “This is a daunting task. We must educate our members, supporters, and concerned Texans of all political stripes about the untrustworthiness of the Texas election system. The task force will achieve three objectives: continue investigation, build an election ground force through the establishment of a coalition, and construct the framework for 2023 election integrity legislation. “As of now, Texas does not have a trustworthy election system. The electorate is full of doubt about election outcomes. Until a trustworthy election system is created in Texas, the legitimacy of the Texas government will remain in question.” A statement from Daniel Miller, Founder and President of the TNM: “Over the years Claver has become an important part of our team. Post-election he has already been working on this issue, and it was a natural choice to ask him to continue his current work of investigation into what happened in the 2022 Texas Primary, but also take the lead on establishing the ultimate solution to this most-crucial component of our state governance.” Contact Details Sharon Macasil Sharon@mediakamp.com

Global employment platform Multiplier raises $60m led by Tiger Global, Sequoia Capital India

Multiplier

Multiplier, a global employment platform, that helps companies employ and pay talent anywhere in the world compliantly, has today announced a $60m Series B funding round. This round was co-led by Tiger Global and Sequoia Capital India with participation from DST Global Partners. The new investment brings Multiplier’s total funding to $77.2m, taking their valuation to $400m. This news comes in less than 3 months since Multiplier’s series A (led by Sequoia Capital India) and just 6 months after seed funding ( through Surge, the Sequoia Capital India start up programme) as the company scales globally. And testament to the growing popularity of the platform, Multiplier’s solution has been recognised and highly-rated in G2 and Capterra. Founded in 2020, at the peak of the pandemic, the company has been solving the problem of global employment by allowing companies to tap into global talent pools effortlessly. “The talent shortage is real and the restrictions due to the pandemic accelerated it. Businesses are finding it hard to hire people with in-demand skills and have opened themselves to the possibility of distributed teams. Meanwhile, candidates have gotten picky about their employers, the actual work, compensation, benefits, flexibility and much more. With this paradigm shift afoot, companies have recently realized that going global is the only way forward. Country borders shouldn’t hinder the search for the right people for the right roles. We are resetting the mantra that hiring people from abroad is a costly, time-consuming, and organizationally daunting effort.” said Sagar Khatri, CEO of Multiplier. Multiplier eliminates the need for organizations to establish their own legal entities to access talent in any country. Businesses that use Multiplier can focus on employing anyone, anywhere in the world in minutes. The company works with customers from across the globe today, with its roots in the Asia Pacific region. Users can manage global payroll, provide benefits, insurance and tackle compliance with ease starting at $300 per employee per month and $40 per freelancer per month. In geographies where businesses have their own entities, Multiplier is helping companies manage payroll for their employees starting at $20 per employee per month. A key focus for Multiplier is the provision of health insurance coverage, a central provision in most standard benefits packages. However, the market is flooded with intermediaries, agents and brokers, so the cost and the value offered becomes extremely important. Multiplier is the only company in the space to provide locally competitive, customizable and homogenous insurance to its customers starting at as less as $20 per employee per month which comes with a detailed factsheet to compare plans. “With this new capital, Multiplier will be able to further accelerate its work towards expanding the global infrastructure, garnering meaningful partnerships and adding new capabilities to our platform. Additionally, we are also on a hiring spree, looking for an all-star team across countries, departments and levels, helping us pivot at scale and deliver premium experiences to our customers.” added Sagar Khatri. Multiplier is doubling down its approach in terms of adding fresh capabilities to its platform. Businesses can now self-register on the platform and instantly send their candidates offer contracts in minutes, not days. They can also offer employee stock ownership plans to their employees. The team is also working on rolling out the crypto-payroll features so businesses can pay their freelancers with cryptocurrencies. John Curtius, Partner, Tiger Global commented: “Multiplier is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the massive opportunity that lies ahead for them. We’re happy to be a long term partner as they are solving a deep pain point for businesses enabling them to employ and pay global talent effortlessly. We are particularly impressed with their product velocity and the speed of execution. We believe that the future of teams is global and Multiplier will the be operating system powering those teams.” Rohit Agarwal, Principal, Sequoia India commented: "Today, founders and businesses are not constrained by borders in their thinking. This has been one of the most fascinating trends in the last couple of years and it's a fundamental shift. Several founders across Asia are building for the world from day 1 and hiring from around the world from day 1. We believe globalization of the workforce is one of the most exciting trends of the next decade and are thrilled to see Multiplier facilitate that shift seamlessly for hundreds of companies and thousands of employees." Multiplier has become the leading global employment solutions platform in a very short span, with customers across the globe from startups to listed enterprises. The founders believe that every company, regardless of location, deserves to have access to talented employees. The team is committed to democratizing global employment and its mission of bringing the world's potential to businesses of all sizes. Multiplier envisions a future in which every business is truly global.

WATER FOCUS OF UTAH’S 2022 LEGISLATIVE SESSION

Washington County Water Conservancy District

Utah’s 2022 legislative session concluded on March 4 with a record number of water conservation bills and appropriations totaling nearly $500 million in spending. Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox is expected to sign the bills into law in the next few weeks. “Utah’s population and economy are exploding but our water supply is dwindling,” said Brian Steed, executive director of the Utah Department of Natural Resources. “We have to protect, conserve and develop our water. Doing nothing and running out of water isn’t an option.” The bills are designed to help bolster water levels in reservoirs throughout the state by reducing demand via grass rebate programs, additional metering of secondary water and watershed enhancement efforts. Statewide water storage is at a dismal 54% of capacity. “As one of the driest and fastest-growing states in the nation, strains on Utah’s water supply threaten our ability to thrive, our recreational opportunities, our environment, and our food supply,” said Brad Wilson, speaker, Utah House of Representatives. “The actions taken this legislative session to conserve, preserve, and optimize Utah’s water resources reiterate our commitment to address current needs while preparing for the future.” Drought conditions are common throughout Utah, especially in the southwest section of the state. Washington County’s major population centers are currently dependent on one water source that has been in a drought 16 of the last 20 years. The Washington County Water Conservancy District (district) is working with its local municipal partners to pass additional water efficiency ordinances that will eliminate or reduce the amount of grass allowed in new construction and developing a more robust regional wastewater reuse system to help prevent approaching water supply shortages. “We are elevating our water conservation efforts while developing the critical infrastructure our growing community will need to survive a hotter and drier climate in the future, including a wastewater reuse system that will serve our municipal customers,” said Zach Renstrom, general manager of the district. “We have to plan for the future and all its uncertainties or we’ll run out of water.” Included in Utah’s water conservation bills are: About Washington County Water Conservancy District The Washington County Water Conservancy District is a not-for-profit public agency that oversees water resources in Washington County, UT.
