SGA elections on the horizon

Monday, March 3, 2008

Election season has come into full bloom just a few weeks ahead of the official start of spring -
despite today's sun-filled balmy weather - and the hunt for the office of Student Government Association President and the position of student Trustee is in full swing.

Last Thursday, the Massachusetts Daily Collegian's own Katie Huston moderated this year's Presidential and student trustee debate, broadcast over the airwaves by both UVC-TV and WMUA.

Presidential candidates Malcolm Chu, Derek Khanna, Devin Ashe, and Peter Kuusisto sparred over campus diversity, the cost of higher education at UMass and across the Commonwealth, the goals of the strike, and touted their qualifications for the head position in the SGA.

Student trustee candidates - Libby Protzman, Lindsay McCluskey and Augusta Mfuko - discussed their qualifications for the student elected and held seat on the UMass Board of Trustees.

For in-depth podcast analysis of the debate with the Collegian's SGA beat writer Mike Fox click here.
