Marcus Iulius Severus (Election MMDCCLX)
MARCVS IVLIVS SEVERVS OMNES CIVIBVS NOVAE ROMAE S·P·D
I don the toga candida to stand in front of you, my fellow citizens, presenting my candidacy for the Praetorship in MMDCCLXI A·V·C (2008 CE)
I am a member of the Plebeian order, citizen of Nova Roma and assidui since MMDCCLVIII A·V·C
In these two and a half years, I have served as Scriba Censoris with Censores Gnaeus Equitius Marinus and Gaius Fabius Buteo Modianus, Interpreter for Spanish and French, designated by the Senate, Rogator, Legatus Pro Praetoris Mexico (previously, Pro Praetor Mexico), and Viator for Tribunus Plebis Marcus Curiatius Complutensis.
I am trying to reactivate my province, and have been having regular meetings in Mexico City, besides being in permanent contact, via e-mail, with as many citizens as possible. I also started legal procedures to create a cultural association according to Mexican law, to promote Nova Roma.
I am not standing before you with preconceived ideas: I want to take part actively in Nova Roma's politics to serve the Republic.
I am sure that I am the correct person for the Praetorship. I have experience, I am willing to work hard, as I have been doing in all my responsibilities, and I believe that I can do a good job as Praetor.
Since you have voted for me in past elections, I am asking you to do it again. Be sure that I won’t disappoint you.
