Many people held various civic responsibilities and/or offices (Mayor, Representative, Justice of the Peace, Selectman, etc). These were not usually Occupations.
I would like to see a new category "Civic" added for recording these facts.

We are currently working through the backlog of old suggestions. Due to the length of time since initial submission, it is possible that this request is no longer needed or that a workaround has been found. Please help us to prioritize our current workflow by either reaffirming the need for this request as is or updating it.
Analysis: Civic is still not listed in the dropdown. It is assumed that Employment, Occupation or Other is being used instead.
Note: This Suggestion will be moved to the archive if no further response or objection is received within 10 days. --cos1776 20:39, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
