Students campaign for ASI
March 25, 2010 11:55 AM
The deadline to vote for the Associated Students, Inc. election is 12:00 a.m. on March 27, and the candidates are working for votes.
The two slates--the Dream Team and We the People--campaigned all week in front of the Cesar Chavez Student Union, and have been drawing good crowds, according to the candidates. They handed out food and drink, while offering games and information to inform the students about those running for office.
Both slates hold that they will try to bring greater transparency and student representation to the ASI.
"We wanted to come up with a name that would explain our entire slate and we came up with We the People because when we looked around the room we saw a multitude of diversity," said Jeffrey Aigbekaen, who is running for vice president of External Affairs.
Isaac Reed, who works for the ASI Legal Resource Center, created the We the People slate. "I'm an advocate for youths in the community," said Isaac Reed. "That's my job. That's my passion. And I'd love to be an advocate for anybody who needed help regardless of what student organization I am a part of."
Cynthia M. Ashton, presidential candidate for the Dream Team said the more students are involved on campus, the more they will be involved academically.
"When I approach students," Ashton said, "I try to bring awareness about what's going on on campus and letting them know things, like there are 200 student organizations on campus. And I bet you one of those organizations might share the same passion as you do"
The voting is done online. Those intending to cast a vote need to login with an SF State password.
