SGA debates tonight

Thursday, February 28, 2008

The Student Government Association is holding President-Trustee candidate debates tonight in the Cape Cod Lounge.

Broadcast on UVC-TV, the event will begin at 7:00 p.m. and feature questions from both campus media outlets (like the Massachusetts Daily Collegian) and from a panel of students. Candidates for both positions will be given a chance to field questions regarding their platforms, stances on campus issues, and showcase their experience in the field of student governance.

Expect some friction between the two main contenders for the top positions, current Secretary of Diversity Malcolm Chu and Vice President of the Republican Club Derek Khanna. Secretary of External Affairs Lindsay McCluskey and Senator Elizabeth Protzman are both running for Student Trustee.

Chu and McCluskey have both been endorsed by the ALANA Caucus as well as former candidate and current Senate Speaker Carla Dominguez.

Senator Devin Ashe and SGA Auditor Peter Kuusisto are both also running for SGA President, while Augusta Mfuko is also running for Student Trustee.
