Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus (Election MMDCCLIX)
Q. Caecilius Metellus Postumianus Quiritibus salutem dicit.
I had not originally intended on campaigning for any office other than the quaestura this year. As it were, I certainly do not care to push my limits with the Senate, since I would need an age exemption for any office for which I intend to stand. However, the circumstances are such that we yet still have offices for which there are not enough candidates to fill the open positions, which is a situation that I would like to do something to help. And, Quirites, with that being the case, I, Quintus Caecilius Metellus Postumianus, hereby offer myself to your service again, in the position of Rogator.

Q. Caecilius Metellus Postumianus Quiritibus salutem plurimam dicit.
It has been quite a long time since I have last posted to this list, and that only because, in the past few weeks, I have preferred to do most of my work behind the scenes. However, I hope that as much is soon to change.
I would like to take this moment to announce that I will be standing for the position of Quaestor. There is not much of a position which can be given for it, and I don't intend to try to fabricate one. What I will say is this: I intend to do nothing more, nor anything less, than to serve you, the People, as best I possibly can, and to serve the magistrate to whom I am assigned just the same.
I won't be asking for any particular endorsements. Those of you who feel that I am worthy of your endorsements are certainly free to give them, and I am certainly thankful for them. I won't be asking for votes in particular either. Instead, I ask only that those of you who feel that I am worthy of your vote please do cast it in my favor, and those of you who feel that I am not are certainly welcomed to vote otherwise. I firmly believe in the will of the People as rule, and do not intend to go about campaigning as though my life depends on this office.
People of Rome, I ask only for the opportunity to serve. If you think I am worthy of as much, please vote in my favor. And if you think otherwise, vote the way you feel.
Valete Optime in Pace Deorum,
Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius Postumianus
