The sound of mallets striking wooden stakes echoed across Cal
Poly Pomona early this morning as the campaign for next year’s
Associated Students, Inc. student-leaders began.

Within the first minute of Thursday ” just past midnight ”
members of Broncos United and CPP ONE began hammering posters on
wooden stakes around campus, beginning campaign efforts that will
lead into the May elections.

“Now there is actually a level of competition being another
ticket, especially this night the other ticket is going to be out
there,” said David Levinson, campaign manager for Broncos

With Jonathan Jianu, vice president, and Matt Stafford, senator
pro-tempore and College of Environmental Design senator, running
for president and vice president, respectively, Broncos United said
the early morning campaign tactic was all about location.

“It’s prime real estate,” said Jianu. “The earlier you are, the
quicker you get everything up and the better visibility your
posters have.”

Jianu is no stranger to campaigning and said his experience with
ASI elections in the past is an important attribute to Broncos

“We have very highly qualified and very well-respected
candidates from different fields who are coming together to work
together to make the campus a better place,” said Jianu.

For the CPP ONE ticket, ASI Business Senator Marques Dickson and
recently elected C.L.A.S.S Senator Justin Page will run for
president and vice president, respectively.

Dickson said cohesion among CPP ONE will be crucial.

“We don’t worry about what everybody else is doing because, in
my opinion, if we start worrying about what everybody else is doing
it breaks down the unit,” said Dickson.

Page said although CPP ONE is new to the ASI campaigning field,
its candidates will work collectively and bring their prior
knowledge of leadership to the table.

“We are the underdog ticket and we know that,” said Page. “We
have a lot of experience with leadership, but we don’t have a lot
of experience with running a campaign ” but we stuck together and
we all stayed out there until 4:30 a.m.”

By noon, both Broncos United and CPP ONE had created Facebook
