ASI preps for election week
February 19, 2009 6:51 PM
Keep a look out for the campaign trail next week. ASI held its first mandatory election meeting on Thursday, which included 35 potential candidates running for 20 open positions.
The campaigning will officially begin on February 26.
"I am tired of hearing college kids b------g, not knowing things can be done," Gerardo Benito Chang, a candidate, said on why he decided to run.
The meeting went over the logistics of the campaign, including dos and don'ts and procedure guidelines. One student asked election commissioner Morgan Lamb if he could attach a huge banner on the library to grab student's attention.
Lamb said the election process is running smoothly and should work out well. Like-minded candidates running for separate offices are already joining together to form a slate appropriately titled "the slate."
Frankie Griffen is one of a handful of current ASI members trying to hold on to their positions for another semester. Griffen said he would like to focus on keeping SF State green.
For those unaware with the ASI, they are SF State's student government. Student organizations may obtain funding through ASI. The board is also responsible for programs such as The Legal Resource Center and Project Connect.
Randy Good, 19, is running for Freshman Representation. He hopes the experience can get him more involved on campus.
"I want to make sure the voice of freshman are heard," he said.
The campaigning will last around four weeks. A debate is scheduled for next month.
