During the Associated Students On-Campus and University-Owned Housing Senator debates, senatorial candidates for the 2014-15 academic school year congregated in the Hub yesterday to discuss their views on specific campus-related issues as well as proposed solutions and future plans.
Associated Students elections are starting up already, with political parties beginning launching their online campaigning on Sunday.
I’ve been involved in Associated Students for about four years now, probably one of the few that can recall the Ariel-like hair from our 2007-08 president, Stephanie Brower. Back when we didn’t have to take a TPS course to drive university vehicles and honorarium was pretty much non-existent. Point being, I have been part of the elections process for the past four years.
Associated Students Judicial Council denied a second appeal from a group of Open People’s Party representatives contesting A.S. Elections Committee’s allegations that members of the party furnished alcohol to minors during Spring Elections.
It is that time of the year again. While many may think them irrelevant, the Associated Students elections are more significant than merely choosing next year’s student leaders.
