Merger Talk[edit]

For the purposes of uniformity, I don't think we should eliminate<EDIT: Or simply redirect> this page in favor of the "Resident Commissioner" article[1]. I'm usually not a big fan of redundancy, but to a certain degree, it seems both pages have their place. It is certainly worthy of note that Puerto Rico has a very different, governmentally recognized title for their delegates, but I think an explanatory phrase and a prominent reference(link) to information about that difference makes more sense than eliminating the "delegate" page altogether. ~ Ross (ElCharismo) 16:10, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

copied from Talk:Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico/To Do. I agree that the merger is a bad idea. Every state and territory has an article 'US congress Reps from X' in a consistent tabular format. The present article can talk more about the office itself: when and how was it established; laws governing the office; etc. etc. Since there has not been any discussion in a month, and no additional comments in favor of the merger, I am going to remove the merger tag. I did the same thing for the Philippines, for the same reasons. --G1076 19:53, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

64th Congress - Luis Muñoz Rivera[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

I edited the table to indicate that Luis Muñoz Rivera served as Resident Commissioner during the 64th Congress (1915-1917). It formerly indicated a vacancy during that Congress. Muñoz Rivera died on November 15, 1916 and his successor, Félix Córdova Dávila, was not elected to the 65th Congress until July 1917. If desired, footnotes could be added to the table to indicate these details and some other less-than-full terms that other Resident Commissioners served (I don't know whether this is considered necessary nor do my technical abilities currently include adding footnotes to tables).

  • I added the footnotes to the article. For another example of using footnotes in a table, see United States Congressional Delegations from New Jersey. You can also look at the discussion of Cite.php here and here.--G1076 19:52, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Thanks. I edited the footnotes some and also fixed the situation for the 72nd Congress (the table isn't really set up to deal with split Congresses). There are a couple of more recent partial-term situations which I will deal with in the table in the next few days as well. Newyorkbrad 20:05, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
