Going from Mayor of New York to state senator is like going from President to US senator. Very odd, and very much a down grade. People leave the US House to run for Mayor of New York

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.

As a general comment-I will look to make a more formal full review if or when I have time later today-her rise seems somewhat infeasible. Making City Council at the age that she does is feasible, but her election to Mayor, rather less so. As it stands, she would be one of the youngest Mayors in New York City's history, as well as the first female Mayor, and she is doing so without substantial name recognition, wealth, or political connections. Moving on from that, a first term with noted intra-party strife, collecting 57% of the vote in a race with multiple independents is a functional landslide victory, which seems unlikely.

Somewhat drawing from Dentali and Sanabel's comments, Mayor of New York City is a major position, arguably comparable to or higher-regarded than Governor of the state, and dropping to the state legislature after holding it is a substantial demotion.

I could see a possibility of marrying this two issues with a change in her election. While I would still recommend making her somewhat older and better-established when she first runs for office, that run for office could be framed as a more significant surprise, or fluke, using a multi-way race to gather a slimmer plurality victory, perhaps. From that, her term would continue as noted, with intraparty strife, and she could run for reelection on the changed ticket, but lose it, likely by a substantial margin. From there, her turning to the State Senate, perhaps with a somewhat larger gap in between, would better fit her attempt to climb the rungs that she had skipped before, patching her standing with the party and setting on a more traditional route towards seeking a higher office.

Character Age: 61
Character Height: 6’1’’
Character Weight: 176 lbs.
Character Position/Role/Job: Owner of Parsons (Rising real estate company based in Sioux Falls)
Appearance:
Character State of Origin: Minnesota
Character State of Residence: South Dakota
Character Party Affiliation: Republican
Main Strengths: Business minded, Somewhat ruthless when it comes to achieving his goals, Very wealthy, Controls much of the real estate market in his state, Prime GOP donor in his state, Has many contacts in state government
Main Weaknesses: Non politician, No political background, Many controversial business moves in his past, Often seen as too economy minded and “indifferent” to many social issues
Biography: Parsons was born in an upper middle class family in St. Paul. At an early age, his family moved to Sioux Falls, where Parsons spent most of his life growing up. In high school, he took an interest in business and real estate in particular, and went on to get his degree in Business Administration from the University of South Dakota.

After graduating, Robert’s father retired and being the eldest son, Robert inherited his small real estate business. After inheriting it, Robert used his management talent to focus on a rapid expansion of the company through the process of buyout on properties. Over the years, Parsons expanded outside of Sioux Falls and into the rest of South Dakota. During this time, he made many ruthless business deals and property bids that left competing companies in the dust.

In 1982, Robert married his first wife, Elizabeth Denard, and the couple had a daughter, Jennifer. However, it was not a happy marriage and just five years later, in 1987, the two divorced, with Robert winning full custody of Jennifer. Over time however, Robert overcame his emotional struggle and continued to grow his rapidly rising business, eventually, he became a multimillionaire and one of the wealthiest men in his state.

During this time, he became the prime donor to the GOP in South Dakota, with significant donations to most Republican campaigns in the state. He also managed to get many contacts in the state government, and had a significant sway over the state government, often through corrupt ‘dirty work’ his company did with politicians. He was one of the biggest donors to Reed’s campaign in 2016, and is a big supporter of the president. By the present RP date, Parsons has begun expanding out of South Dakota and into its neighboring midwestern states.


Other Info: Robert is looking to make a gubernatorial bid for South Dakota in 2018, as the incumbent is being term limited. Holds no current political office

Speaking similar as on the other application, in general comments, I would recommend adding some greater detail on his political views and donations, and on the nature of his controversial business dealings, to what extent they are public, or legal. For the former, the general questions to answer would be largely twofold. First, whether he functions are more of an activist donor, i.e., making active commentary on certain issues and publicizing himself as political, or if he limits himself primarily to donations. Given his first weaknesses, I would assume the former, but clarification would be helpful. The second would be whether he works as largely an ideological donor, or a partisan one. The former would see him funding primary opponents and certain candidates in particular who share more of his personal views, presumably the more economically conservative over socially conservative, the latter, which I believe is more implied in the biography, but clarification would again be helpful, would be acting largely as a donor to the party and the party organs without taking sides among internal factions.

She was term-limited and couldn't run for re-election as mayor. She spent two years just hanging around and was going to retire from politics but missed it and ran to be state senator for the district she lived in - she wanted to stay in New York rather than move to Washington, D.C., particularly since her husband was and is still a professor at Columbia University.

EDIT: Just read Pro's comments and will be working on revising my app later today.

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. With urging from friends, she ran for the office of the NYC mayor as the Democratic candidate. However, as the campaign and the year was marked with differences between her and notable other Democratic members, others ran campaigns as independents in the general election. Going into the general election, the candidates were Judith as the Democratic nominee, Tyler Harrison as the Republican nominee, Timothy Wilde running independently, and Jeffrey Mills running independently. The results were scattered among the Democratic candidates. In the end, Judith narrowly - and surprisingly - won the election. She won 41% of the vote while Wilde won 39% of the vote, Harrison won 16% of the vote, and Mills won 4% of the vote.

During her four years as mayor, her minor differences with the Democratic leadership in the city became larger disputes. Her term as mayor was ripe with strife between herself and other Democratic leaders in the city. She sided with Republicans on a number of issues during her term. When she announced her candidacy for re-election as an independent, the city's Republican leadership approached her and asked her to run as the Republican nominee. She agreed and changed her affiliation during her campaign. In the general election in 1993, she was up against Timothy Wilde for a second time, this time with him as the Democratic nominee for the office. She lost the election by a landslide, with Wilde winning with 76% of the vote.

After losing the election, she told her husband and children - as well as friends - that she would not be running for another political office and that she was retiring from politics. She was hired on as an adjunct professor in the political science department of City College of New York. As the years went on, she started to miss being greatly involved in politics. During her time as a professor, she affiliated as a Democrat once again and worked on reconciling past relationships with Democratic leadership in the city - becoming close friends with Mayor Wilde and other Democratic leaders in the city. In the campaign season leading up to the general election in 1997, she was one of the major organizers in the campaign to re-elect Timothy Wilde as mayor of the city. Wilde won re-election with 68% of the vote.

As 1999 approached, she confessed to friends and family that she was thinking about running for office again. Friends and family were excited to see her passion for politics returning in the years after her last defeat. Mayor Timothy Wilde was a close friend and absolute encouragement during this time of her life, insisting that she run for office once again. She settled on running for the 16th district in the New York state Senate, with an early endorsement from Mayor Wilde himself. As she campaigned, she continued to show her moderate stances - some of which leaned liberal and others than leaned conservative. Her campaign was able to please moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans, but she was more of a favorite with Democrats. In 1999, in the general election for the 16th district, she ran against Republican Trevor Liephold. She won the election with 52% of the vote.

She has held the office since 1999, winning every re-election she's faced since her initial election. In 2003, Trevor Liephold ran against her again and she won that election with 63% of the vote. In 2007 and 2011, she ran against Republican Jerold Holbrooks, winning those elections with 58% and 62% of the vote, respectively. In 2015 she ran against Republican Harry Jones and won the election with 58% of the vote. 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.

She is presently exploring a run for the governorship.

Greetings I am here to announce my return after my considerable absence, thanks to some chaos regarding my exams. On the bright side I was able to make the Dean's List this semester, and perhaps more importantly I can do this again for a couple of hours a day. Regardless, I need to be caught up with what is happening, can anybody fill me in on what I missed?

Jared actually playing peacemaker here would be funny, not what you expect from him

But he does actually want to keep everything together, so he should be a positive influence
