I would like to implore candidates who were unsure of whether or not they should have ran in the Concilium Plebis elections to consider running for Quaestor. Speaking from experience – Quaestor can be an excellent introduction to the administration, governance and daily operations of the Republic, and you will have a lot of interesting tasks if you only take them! I have served as Quaestor since spring of 2021, and I have not regretted running a single day.
Don’t hesitate to run, be bold, serve your republic, make your mark!November 22, 2021 at 6:18 pm #42266

Reminder! We need 4 Quaestores and 1 Curule Aedile for the year coming up! Otherwise, it will be very challenging to offer a full slate of activities next year. If you are considering to volunteer, I urge you to do so by declaring your candidacy.November 24, 2021 at 12:18 am #42269

After serving the past year as Tribune, and being consistently present over the past 12 months. I would like to serve as Quaestor. I’m eager to continue to offer my support and time to our Republic. I hope that in doing so I am doing my part in growing the CDR and helping our respublica shine the light of the gods upon the world.November 27, 2021 at 8:52 pm #42271
We are going to extend this meeting to accept candidates until December 3. Voting will now commence on the 4th and run until the 16th.
We need candidates for Curule aedile and Quaestor. So please consider running. Thank you!November 29, 2021 at 6:09 pm #42272

SALVETE. If possible I will run for Curule Aedile. I feel the I was able to contribute to the Republic as a Quaestor. I helped in updating records of the Republic and contributed to some of the live video chats. I am currently working on creating a Roman Republic video series for youtube that will help explain some of the things I found confusing when I initially joined. I want to see the Republic succeed and continue to be a force for good in the world. As Curule Aedile I will seek to find innovative ways to fulfill my duties and hopefully increase the solidarity of our citizens.November 30, 2021 at 12:25 am #42273
Gaius Cominius LaenasDenarii: 𐆖 2,014.10EquesterEria
I have decided to run for Quaestor after getting a phone call from my very good friend, Senator Q. Furius Camillus.
I held this job in 2017 during the consulship of L. Curtio L. Aurelio. I believe I served well and will do so again if given the chance. Since serving as Quaestor I have been a senator. I have not been timid in my role as senator. I am okay with speaking my mind even if it is not popular.
The Republic is full of potential. Unfortunately, we have not fully realized this potential. Our inconsistent leadership is largely responsible for this. As a Quaestor, I will always be present. I would like to advocate for the following over my term:
I. The creation of new sybilline books in the form of the project started by Pontifex Ti. Terentius Varro last year.
II. Creation of a formal CDR training program under the joint direction of the senate and collegium pontificum
III. The approval of at least two new augures before the end of 2022.
IV. Starting monthly video meetings with magistrates to build collegiality, accountability and to start joint projects.
I hope to have your support and may the gods keep you.

After sometime to think over it and some inspiration with a friend, who had become an Aedile, and despite any hesitancy as a new citizen (as she was too), I will put my name forward as a Quaestor and with my passion for history, language, philosophy, and religion, wishing to learn more about Cultus Deorum, I’ve wanted to show the give and take with community of citizens and cultores here and put forth my candidacy as Quaestor.
Call it civic duty inspired directly by my prayers and rites with the Gods, but I feel up to task and will gladly help the community I put myself in.
Gratia vos ago!

I have chosen to run as Quaestor. As guidance from the gods is key, I promise to bring forward these issues over the next year:
1. The training of augurs, at least one new augur before the end of this next year.
2. The creation and approval of directions for the assembly and creation of a home augury kit to be offered to the public.
Do not support me, support the Republic by choosing the best candidates.
The gods walk with you.December 3, 2021 at 2:38 am #42277
