One candidate vies for Student Center seat
November 15, 2007 9:21 AM
Today is the last day to vote for two at-large positions for the board of the student center.
Although two positions are available, only one name, Sam Brown, was listed on the ballot, as he was the only person to meet the candidate requirements, which include a good academic standing and at least 100 signatures in support of running for the position.
Responsibilities for this position are somewhat of a long list, according to student center managing director, Guy Dalpe, but are mainly directing organization.
“The true responsibility is asking students to vote them in to office so they can become a representative on the governing body for this building,” he said.
Voter turnout has been low in the past; about 800 to 2,000 students usually participate.
“We usually put advertisements in the newspaper, and put up posters,” Dalpe said. “But the turnout isn’t there.”
Some feel the turnout is low because of the type of school SF State is known as.
“This is a commuter school,” said Erin Haywood, Liberal Arts major. “I know people that run and I like to be active, but candidates might not have the time to publicize and introduce themselves.”
Voting tables will be open in the Cesar Chavez until 4 P.M. taking ballots, which also include write-in candidates.
