Election MMDCCLXI (Nova Roma)/Gaius Popillius Laenas
|Gaius Popillius Laenas
Gaius Popillius Laenas Quiritibus salutem plurimam dicit,
I come before you once again in the virtual whitened toga of the candidate to announce that I am standing for the position of censor.
I have been a citizen of Nova Roma for over seven years, since February 2001. In that time, I have been honored to serve as:
- consular quaestor (organizing our first year of tax collection)
- accensus to two consuls
- tribune of the plebs
- consul, and
I have been in the Senate for over four years.
In my macronational life I am a business owner with over 30 years of experience, a certified public accountant, a certified financial planner, and a few other certified this and that's. I am the proud father of two teen daughters.
So, I ask you for your support and your vote. I will be pleased to answer any questions, either on the Main List or privately at: gaiuspopillius <at> gmail <dot> com.
About Roman Religion:
I am not a practitioner, but neither am I a follower of any "mainstream" religion. You can ask around and learn that I have always been a staunch defender of the Religio in NR. I worked especially hard against the idea of electing Pontiffs, which would put decisions about the Religo in the hands of non-practitioners. I have also enjoyed and received spiritual benefits from my participation in Religo rites as a magistrate. Specifically, conducting the midnight (dawn Rome time) ceremony on New Years Day as an incoming consul was very moving.
