"UTI ROGAS" indicates a vote in favor of an item, "ANTIQUO" or "NEGAT" is a vote against, and "ABSTINEO" is an abstention.

ITEM I - Appointment of Marcus Bianchius Antonius as governor of province "Lacus Magni"


Passed: unanimously. 15 UTI ROGAS


MMA: UTI ROGAS: He was recommended by his former Propraetor, and that together with his experience as a Legate, bodes well for the province and for Nova Roma. MOG: UTI ROGAS - he was recommended by the previous propraetor, and has had the experience as a legate and co-organizer of our last provincial gathering.

ITEM II - Appointment of Lucia Ambrosia Valeria as governor of province "Mediatlantica"


Passed: unanimously. 15 UTI ROGAS


MOG: UTI ROGAS - although a relatively new citizen, she has already demonstrated committment by serving as Sacerdos.

ITEM III - Appointment of Sextus Apollonius Scipio as governor of province "Gallia"


Passed: 13 UTI ROGAS vs 1 NEGAT & 1 ABSTINEO


PCS: UTI ROGAS If there was another candidate interested/qualified I would be forced to vote no, in keeping with the current Senatus Consultum on this matter. However, in the past Propraetors have been appointed, who do not meet all Senate guidelines, but show promise and enthusiasm, under the guardianship of another Propraetor who shall act as a mentor. As Senator et Propraetor Marcus Minucius Audens has offered himself in this capacity, I shall vote yes for Apollonius.

CFD: UTI ROGAS Since he doesn't fulfill the requirements for governorship, he´s an able and dedicated man, suitable for one of the most important provinces. He deserves an exemption.

AICPM: VTI ROGAS I feel a little bit hesitating to vote posiively mostly because he is resident in Germany and I do not know how the citizenary in Gaul will accept him. Anyway, I trust his abilities and enthusiasm on the goals of our Republic to provide a wise and sucessful governorship of this important province.

CMM: NEGO I cannot vote to appoint someone immediately following notification to the whole Senate that he does not meet any of the minimum standards that this body established for appointment.

MMA: ABSTINEO I have indicated my feelings and recommendations already to this august chamber, together with my offer to mentor this gentleman, as I have done previously. Since I have offered to mentor this individual and since he has two areas in which he does not meet the letter of the law regarding the appointment to the position of Propraetor, I cannot in good conscience vote for or against him. My offer to mentor this individual still stands, should the Honored Senior Consul see fit to make the temporary appointments, as suggested by my honored and trusted colleague, Senator Strabo.

MOG: UTI ROGAS - this is a very important provincia and it needs a governor. S. Apollonius is mature and dedicated.

ITEM IV - Guidelines for Micronational Recognition


Passed: 11 UTI ROGAS vs 2 NEGAT & 2 ABSTINEO


PC: ANTIQUO. I honor Decius Iunius' cooperation and would welcome his input if he is able to take time away from family concerns, but I also believe Nova Roma and the macronational climate has changed since he penned these. I also do not believe we should approve such a significant law without considerably more discussion and consideration, both here and on the Main List.


MMA: ABSTINEO I have offered to write a set of guidelines for this purpose, and have recieved authority from the Senior Consul to proceed with that project. I had asked the Jr. Consul to send me these guidelines so that I might get started on that project. My intention was to use these guidelines and the discussion at Roman Days as a basis for the project. However, a response from the Jr. Consul was never recieved, and these guidelines were immediately rushed onto the Senate Ballot in order, apparently, to get to this point first. This, in spite of the fact that this project had lain fallow for some long period of time. Since I am not in a "racing mode" on this project, and since I have no wish to cloud the "success" of the Jr. Consul in this instance, I gracefully surrender the field, for whatever "honor" is to be gained by this "victory," to the "Honored Junior Consul Sulla Felix"

MOG: UTI ROGAS - this is a statement of what our goals should be and which nations we should seek relations with, and I consider it good advice.
