Gonna start working on two character apps - for the same position - and will post both of them when I finish for guidance and suggestions to improve both.

I'll settle on one as I hear people's suggestions and criticisms.

Or I'll throw all that out and just submit one.

I believe it is Post-Reagan.... anything before Reagan's last term as President should be useable.

I'm going to Europe to mostly Italy and Eurodisney in France. We're skipping UK, but since the alcohol laws are different in Europe, I might try liquor for the first time.

Biography: Judith Cox Davis was born to Robert and Elizabeth Cox on September 12, 1947 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At the age of three, her family - consisting of her parents and three older brothers - moved to Queens in New York City. Her father was a soldier in WWII, who fought in the European theater. He landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day and was on the front lines of the push into Nazi-occupied Europe. He often told stories of his experiences as she grew up, covering darker details such as liberating concentration camps as her and her siblings got older. He returned to pharmacy school after returning home from the war and opened a pharmacy in Queens. It wasn't a lucrative career for him, but he made enough to feed his family, treat his wife and children well, and take the family on one good vacation every year. Her mother was a schoolteacher. As Judith and her siblings grew up, they worked in their father's pharmacy. Judith was the youngest of four children in the family. Her brothers, Robert Jr., Travis, and Fitzgerald, were born in 1940, 1945, and 1946 respectively. Being the only girl alongside three boys, she was raised tough.

She attended City College of New York, graduating in 1969 with a degree in political science. She got deeply involved with politics while attending the college, getting involved heavily with the Civil Rights Movement on campus and joining anti-Vietnam War protesters. She dreaded telling her father that she was protesting the Vietnam War, since he was a veteran, but he supported her, saying, "War is Hell so give them Hell." She says that her father was always supportive of her throughout her youth and life. In April 1969, one month before graduating from the college, she participated in a protest on campus that overwhelmed and took over the South campus. She and her fellow students demanded the City College provide academic support for students and an affirmative action program to increase minority enrollment.

While in college, Judith worked with the campaigns to elect Edith Joyce to the New York City Council and Richard Leeds as Borough President of Queens. In 1969, Richard Leeds narrowly won his election as Borough President while Edith Joyce won her seat on the New York City Council by a landslide, as her Republican opponent was heavily criticized for allegations of infidelity in his marriage.

Judith met Andy Davis during her third year at City College of New York. The two of them were introduced by a mutual friend and they started dating - they both shared political interests and beliefs. He was one year ahead of her and graduated from the college in 1968, with a degree in English. He took one year off from college, staying closely involved with the civil rights movement on the City College campus, as well as anti-Vietnam War protests. He also worked on the campaign to help elect Edith Joyce to the New York City Council. In 1970, Andy proposed to Judith and they married later that year. In 1970, Andy went on to enroll at Columbia University. He would go on to finish his master's and doctorate programs while teaching at City College of New York, he'd become a professor at Columbia University after completing his doctorate.

In 1970, while Andy enrolled in his graduate program, Judith had become Edith Joyce's secretary and assistant in her office. Judith took the opportunity to network with other city council members and learn more about the political process. She continued working in Edith's office throughout her first term. She worked on Edith Joyce's campaign in 1973, which Edith won re-election in her seat. She continued to work with Edith throughout her second term, but aware that she could not run for a third term Judith saw an opportunity.

In 1977, Judith ran a campaign for Edith's seat, seeing as it would be vacant. She ran on an independent campaign and had Edith's support despite her being a Democrat and there being a Democrat running for the seat as well. In 1977, her Republican opponent won the election for the seat and the Democratic candidate accused Judith of being the cause of the result, claiming that if Judith didn't run then he would have won.

In 1981, Judith ran another campaign for the seat, running as a Democrat against the incumbent Republican. She once again had the support of Edith and other political friends and allies. Without another opponent from her side of the race, she won 67% of the vote, winning the seat that she'd worked so hard for. In 1985, she ran for re-election for the seat, winning with 64% of the vote. During her time on the New York City Council, she was known to be a moderate Democrat, working closely with Democrats and Republicans to get ordinances passed throughout her two terms. While on the council, she chaired the Committee on Education and was a member of the Civil and Human Rights Committee, the Committee on Higher Education, and the Youth Services Committee.

In 1989, she could not run for re-election to the New York City Council as she had served her two consecutive terms. She ran for the office of NYC mayor as the Democratic candidate. She won with 53% of the vote, narrowly beating her Republican opponent. During her first term, she had difficulties with other Democratic leaders in the city - often at disagreements with the growing number of Democrats that were moving further left than her moderate stances liked. In 1993, she ran for re-election. She started her campaign for re-election as an independent, having found herself at odds with Democratic leadership in the city. A few months into her campaign, Republican leadership in the city approached and and asked her to run as a Republican. She agreed and ran for re-election as a Republican - announcing the affiliation later in her campaign. Multiple Democrats ran as independents, stealing votes from Judith's Democratic opponent. She won re-election with 57% of the vote.

She served the first two years of her second term affiliated as a Republican before returning to an independent stance, affiliating officially with neither party but working closely with leaders on both sides for the remaining two years of her term. In 1997, she helped campaign for the Republican candidate running for mayor. He narrowly won the election, taking the office of mayor after the end of her second term.

She took two years between political offices, teaching as an adjunct professor at City College of New York in the political science department. In 1999, she ran for the 16th district in the New York state Senate. She campaigned as a moderate Democrat, but held stances that pleased moderate Democrats and Republicans. She won the election with 61% of the vote. She has held the office since 1999, winning every re-election she's faced since her initial election. On the state Senate, she is the chairwoman of the Committee on Higher Education. She also sits as a member on the Committee on Education, the Committee on Children and Families, the Committee on Aging, and the subcommittee on New York City Education.

I wanted to make a far more liberal candidate, admittedly, but with how Republican New York is in the roleplay right now I feel its necessary to run a much more moderate Democrat who's been known to lean Republican at times historically.
