Session VIII 10-18 September 2751
Senate action for 10 September 2751 through 18 September 2751 as posted in the “old Tabularium” This is posted in place of a Tribunes report that has yet to be found. Tiberius Galerius Paulinus, Censor 8 August 2761 A.V.C.
1. Appointment of Lucius Equitius Cincinnatus to the Senate
Date: Thu, 10 Sep 1998 09:47:43 EDT
I am more than pleased to make an official announcement to the Citizens on the list... Our Praetor Urbanus, Lucius Equitius Cincinnatus, has been appointed to the position of Senator in Nova Roma!
Senate has unanimously voted to appoint L. Equitius to fill the recent gap left by the departure of Flavius Vedius Germanicus. While Germanicus can in no way be "replaced", Equitius has done much to prove himself in his own right, and we're all enthusiastic about the new change!
Congratulations, Lucius Equitius Cincinnatus, Senator of Nova Roma! :)
Valete, Marcus Cassius Julianus Consul
2. Appointment of Quintus Caecilius Metellus as Consul Suffectus
Date: Fri, 18 Sep 1998 12:00:51 EDT
As we know, the departure of Flavius Vedius Germanicus has left some vacant official positions. This has left us in a difficult spot... there are new elections coming up in only three months, but all of these positions require filling in the interim to keep Nova Roma running at full speed.
The Senate has taken "Senatus Consultum" votes to resolve these issues. I am VERY pleased to announce that Quintus Caecilius Metellus, Senator and Praetor of the Mid-Atlantic Provincia, has been voted in to fill the vacant Co-Consul position for the rest of the current magisterial term.
Congratulations, Quintus Caecilius Metellus, Consul of Nova Roma! :) Metellus will not be running to continue the post in the upcoming election, but will no doubt do wonderful work during this interim period. This has been a busy time for Nova Roma - and I am more than pleased to have a Co-Consul of such knowledge and skill. I hope that all Citizens will join me in my relief in having this important post filled by someone of genuine ability! Valete,
Marcus Cassius Julianus (No longer "The Lone Consul")
3. Appointment of Decius Iunius Palladius as Censor Suffectus
Date: Fri, 18 Sep 1998 12:11:13 EDT
The other major post left vacant with Germanicus' departure is the office of Censor. This has meant delays in the processing of new Citizens, and new Gentes.
The Senate has also voted by Senatus Consultum on this matter. I am pleased to announce that Decius Iunius Palladius, Senator and Pontiff, has been chosen to take up this important posting. We've needed this in the last couple of weeks, as Nova Roma has continued to grow at an impressive rate.
Congratulations Decius Iunius Palladius, Censor of Nova Roma!
This posting will ensure that people wishing to join Nova Roma will get their Citizenship promptly, and that the Gentes rolls will be properly kept. The organized growth of Nova Roma is in good hands! I'm pleased to have Decius as fellow Censor, as he has already shown his abilities as Senator and Pontiff. Again I hope that all Citizens will join me in my relief at seeing this important post filled!
Marcus Cassius Julianus Consul, Censor
