I would also like to take a moment to encourage all citizens to vote in the days ahead. I believe ballots are being sent out in the next few hours.
I echo the sentiments of Senator C. Cominius, we are blessed to have so many volunteers for office! I applaud all of you!
I would like to point out a few particular names I believe should be highlighted;
Ti. Terentius Varro — An honorable and pious man. He is correct. Without him I doubt we would be having these elections today. He is part of the beating heart of the RR today. He deserves your vote for Censor.
A. Iulius Caesar — His work in setting up our discord channel was a major accomplishment. No citizen this year has done more to connect our civitas. From our private conversations I know he has many great plans that as consul he could usher in.
M. Flavius Celsus — This is a msn that I’ve been honored to have known for many years now. He personifies living the virtues and being a Roman. I have full faith in his abilities.
Gratias tibi! Bonam fortunam!December 9, 2020 at 10:41 am #40577

Thank you to all the centuries that placed their faith in me. I will not disappoint you.
I am saddened that the Sibylline books will remain unrestored by Lex Terentia failing to pass. I hope those who voted against it can provide feedback on why they felt uncomfortable with this proposal. This way we can address these concerns and improve the proposal for we can reestablish this invaluable tool for communicating with the gods of the Roman people.December 22, 2020 at 9:35 pm #40615
I congratulate the elected! Well done. It is good to see fresh names elevated to the highest positions. Such a thing is essential if we are to renew our energy and ideas within our beloved civitas.
I feel similar to our new Censor-elect, Ti. Varro, it is a damn shame the civitas rejected Lex Terentia. A foolish collective decision.
To be frank, I think this is an issue that should go through the to be formed Collegium Pontificum. Many voters are not cultores or have much knowledge about the issues surrounding the Sibylline books. So deferring this proposal to the Comitia Centuriata was likely a mistake. I urge Ti. Varro to form the Collegium Pontificum without delay and to then revisit this matter among peers of similar experience.
I was resoundingly defeated in this election. I secured only VII centuries whereas the victors, Ti. Varro and Sex. Mus both secured over XX centuries. I receive your message clearly, my fellow Romans! I smile at the purity in your response, the unambiguity of it. I honor your opinion on the matter. You have selected two good men to the censorship and to all the offices sought in this election. Well done!
For myself, I have served our Republic since before it was founded. I am pleased with where my fingerprints lie on this organization. I hope you feel I executed this year’s consulship with care and dignity, even if we did not see eye-to-eye on all things. The best Romans know when to bow out when on top and return to the farm, so to speak. So I now follow the example of our best ancestors.
I hereby declare my retirement from public life. I shall be here in the forum for pleasure. I will attend the senate meetings (I am not letting them off that easy), and will now focus on dedicating myself to our gods. I have started training under my friend, and former colleague, Ti. Varro, towards eventually serving as a priest. My energy will now be focused here and only very peripherally on administrative affairs of our Republic.
May the gods keep you, smile upon you, and lay evident the virtues.
THIS MEETING OF THE IX COMITIA CENTURIATA IS NOW CLOSED!

P. Iunius Brutus Sen. sal.
It warms my heart to see another productive election season come to a close. As a Curule Aedile-elect I am excited to work with the new administration that takes on the reigns of the Res Publica in ten short days! I missed being involved officially in the administrative team, and it looks like a great team has taken shape!
I can’t wait to get started on the greatest year yet of our Res Publica, M. Flavio A. Iulio Cos.!
To Pro. Valeria, K. Cispius, and Q. Camillus, thank you for your continued service to the Res Publica. All of you have served with conviction and passion in years past, and throughout this year as well. Your service is recognized and honored.
Q. Camillus, yes we often disagree. But I always respect you. Your unorthodox manner certainly inspires much useful discussion. In your words, I see your wisdom delivered in a particularly unique Camillus manner. 🙂 Amice, I look forward to working with you more in the capacity of the Cultus Deorum.
Pro. Valeria and K. Cispius, your efforts to unite Romans are admirable. I hope your perspectives are assessed carefully by our new Consules and Praetores over the months ahead. I think your unique perspectives deserve a spot within the senate and around the magisterial table. Thus, I hope we see you both step forward as candidates for Quaestor in the new year. We still have two spots outstanding. Consules-elect M. Celsus and A. Caesar, I hope you both call the Comitia Tributa with haste to allow those citizens who desire to serve as magistrates the opportunity to do so.
Last, thank you to all the magistrates, Consules – Sex. Mus, Q. Camillus, Praetores – Ti. Varro, A. Caesar, and Tribunes – Sp. Gallonius, and Pro. Valeria for an excellent year. You all successfully put our Res Publica back on track against all odds and nay-sayers.
Towards this accomplishment alone, you deserve a place in the history books of the early modern Roman Republic. Bravo!
I hope all citizens can join me in celebrating your victory! 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
