Magistrate Reports MMXVIII

Postby Gaius Florius Lupus » Mon Aug 26, 2019 10:07 am

Avete magistratus emeriti!

Your duty was not to find excuses for not doing your duty, but finding solutions to whatever problem arises, while you were in office. What efforts have you undertaken to overcome the problems that you described in your reports? This is what we citizens want to know.

If our forefathers had shown your attitude, they would have been overrun by the Etruscans in the earliest days of the City.
Or do you think a consul or praetor in command of an army can just do nothing during a battle and then return to Rome telling the citizens excuses, why sub-optimal circumstances prevented him from going into battle?

As citizens we do not want to hear excuses and what went wrong. Tell us, what you solved, what efforts you made and what obstacles you overcame!

Here, here! Chisel Lupus' message on your walls magistrates of 2018! You moaning heifers.

Damned, be excuses. Give me solutions. What did you do during your term and since to make things better for the res publica? You were dealt bad cards, so what did you do, besides sitting on your Sarmatian derrières crying about Brutus screwing up.

A lot of chirping chickens around here. Thank the Gods for those few Romans that are focused on productive work, both in 2018 and today.

Hello. I agree with you Lupus, we really originally wanted to write reports in the manner that you say. Unfortunately, when Alba was the first to prepare her report, we realized that this was not a report, the focus of grievances and complaints. We do not want a new round of conflict and contradictions, this is counterproductive, but it would certainly happen if people began to describe the events of last year.
We agreed that we would write the reports in this - neutral form. Dirty laundry should remain in the basket of the past year. We do not want to harm those people who are now trying to get the Republic out of the crisis.
I hope you understand.
