He's been in office for just over half a century and he currently serves as the ranking member of the Ethics Committee; he also serves as the ranking member of the Education& Labor Committee. My bio for him says that he previously served as a Whip for 8 years.


Isn't Mattox also the Dean of the House?

I'd completely forgotten that was a thing.

omg that means Mattox swore in Volker at the start of the Congress XD

Anywho, how about having Mattox serve as the Assistant Dem Caucus Chairman? Whip & Assistant Speaker don't fit him, and that'd make him the #4 among House Dems. We could say it was a consolation for him to be less vocal about Crawford being Minority Leader instead of Simone.

I'm pretty sure Crawford is the House Dem Caucus Chair, not Minority Leader

Okay, I'm writing an app for House Whip right now. If Maugrym had a character who served as Whip previously when did they step down? I'm planning to have this character step into that position as soon as that character left.
We can debate legislation but systemic racism exists! Would someone make a joke about how you could be blindfolded with floss?

Still figuring out the nooks and crannies but yes I'm your resident social liberal :)

I would suggest a Senator (honestly someone from a safe state for the filibustering would be nice jk jk), nothing against you of course but we haven't seen your RP skills enough to give you House Minority Leader


Just read this, so I would be willing to change my app to a senator. What do you think? Whip or Sen from Washington

Just make the assistant whip and therefore de facto whip. If you do well then you can take the formal position

Honestly, I'd say just go with what you feel would be better

But personally, due to my own bias as Hertzog's player, I'd love another Dem Senator. Plus, at least in my personal opinion, having a Whip character while there isn't a Leader character could end up as a bit of an awkward dynamic.

Mattox served as Whip from 2011 to 2019, so next person would have started on Jan 3, 2019 at the very earliest.

Would the Republicans accept having Eric Roffe in a Senate leadership position somewhere to appease his supporters? I might quickly reapp for him again, if at least to provide some Republican opposition to Richardson's fiscally populist plans - although this Eric Roffe will be highly fiscally conservative, as an advance warning.

EDIT: If this isn't possible I'll just have him have no position but be more of an influencer of the conservative bloc in the GOP.

No.

And why not? There's nothing in the rules about it, and you are neither an administrator nor a moderator to make such a decision.

You have been spamming multiple threads about wanting to be Northumbria, and I'm tempted to sic the mods on you if you keep it up.

Yes, but I'll change him up a bit so he runs for Senator after some point or maybe even make him a Senator for the entire duration duration he was Governor.
