Initials Vote Comments DeIPI Uti rogas LCSF Uti rogas CnIC Uti rogas TIS Uti rogas PACP Antiquo QFM Uti rogas PUSV Uti rogas "Competition can come from within, have seen organizations with smaller, similar and larger membership torn apart by internal dissent. My advice has long been, do not like how things are going, and other folks do, and do not want your change, go someplace where you can create something to your wants. I have to say it is ironic that a Priest of Concornia is one of the dissident voices." StaCVIA Uti rogas MPC Antiquo "I vote against designating Nova Roma members who established a website and mailing list as a competing organization. The notion that they are a competing organization is silly. Saving Nova Roma is not an organization, it is simply a mailing list for the plaintiffs. Free Nova Roma is simply a website run by some of the plaintiffs. The plaintiffs cannot be a competing organization, regardless of any concerns about a 'state within a state' or conspiracy theories that members of this body may entertain. Designating members of Nova Roma who have a beef with the Senate as having established a competing organization is an inflammatory action that shows the Senate has no desire to negotiate or to defuse the conflict. With this agenda item, the Senate majority is yet again stealing power from the citizens in comitia by enacting rules regarding membership that should be decided by the members." MCGG Uti rogas CPD Antiquo CMCV Uti rogas "Had the litigants not held elections and established a rogue NR Government, it is likely I would have advocated for some sort of negotiations, even some form of compromise ..but this action, and the statements of Lentulus on the main forum, basically indicating that the corporation itself is illegitimate precludes that. If they have their own Government and Magistrates, they are, ipso facto, a state within a State, and thus a competing organization housed with Nova Roma itself. I find this entirely unacceptable, and while I am loathe to stand against many who I once considered friends, even close friends, my interest, and my ONLY interest, is the well being and protection of Nova Roma itself." QSP Uti rogas
Item III - CIO reappointment
- SENATUS CONSULTUM ON THE REAPPOINTMENT OF MARCUS POMPEIUS CANINUS AS CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER
- The Senate of Nova Roma appoints Marcus Pompeius Caninus as CIO/MA for a period of 2 years, effective with the passage of this Senatus Consultum. His two year term shall end on 01 February 2020.

Initials Vote Comments DeIPI Uti rogas LCSF Uti rogas CnIC Uti rogas TIS Uti rogas "However I want to believe we reappoint a CIO who will protect Nova Roma and not look superficially to those who registered the necessary tools (webdomain for example) to run a parasite organization." PACP Uti rogas QFM Uti rogas PUSV Uti rogas "I think continuity is good, and a reasoned mind, even if we have a few small points of difference, is good in this position."
