Eight hopefuls have put their names in the hat for the 2017 Associated Students, Inc. president and vice president positions.
After announcements were made last Monday, the candidates were officially given the green light to begin promoting themselves, their platforms and their thoughts on why they are best fit to hold these elected offices.
Two tickets have opted to create campaign pages on Facebook while the other two have been mostly silent thus far in the campaign.
There has also been some tension between candidates in regard to a lack of support for one particular candidate, but details haven’t been released on the matter thus far.
The four tickets for ASI president and vice president candidates are as follows (in no particular order):
Farris Hamza ” ASI President, Carlos Gomez ” ASI Vice President
Joshua Ebiner ” ASI President, David Lee ” ASI Vice President
Thomas Logue ” ASI President, Kevin Andrews ” ASI Vice President
Matthew Rodney ” ASI President, Sade Wilcox ” ASI Vice President
In addition to the two top positions, there are also 13 candidates for various senator positions.
The College of Agriculture and College of Education and Integrative Studies both do not currently have applicants or candidates in the running for their respective senator positions.
Campaigning is off to a quick start with the first candidate debate in University Park happening Thursday during U-Hour, followed by Pizza with the Candidates in University Park on May 11 during U-Hour.
The election will take place May 15-18 online and an Election Results Celebration will be held Friday May 19 from noon to 1 p.m.
Be sure to have your voice heard in this campaign by attending events and voting so the next group of student leaders are able to put their best foot forward with the campus community’s best interests in mind.
