[Two positions available]

Big surprise that current president Freemantle is not running again. In a interview with Salient earlier in the week Freemantle was playing coy with the prospect of her running for a second term. She did say that if she didn’t run she would anoint a successor. Salient‘s guess is that this is Max Hardy.

Alan Young has hedged his bets by nominating himself for three positions, including president and vice-president.

Many of the catagories have only one candidate, meaning that No Confidence will be a strong option for many VUWSA voters this year.

No nominations for the positions of administration VP, Queer Rep and for one of the publications committee reps as well as No Confidence’s strong presence means that these positions will probably be co-opted until VUWSA are able to hold a by-election early next year.

    Caitlin: you need to beat no confidence first.

  13. Ravi says:

    Hey there,

    Perhaps I’m missing something, but I cannot find an easy link to what each candidate actually stands for. How the hell am I supposed to decide on who to vote for if there isn’t any information on the candidates? I realise there have been random bits and pieces scattered throughout lecture theatres…but thats hardly satisfactory advertisement. It doesn’t surprise me why so little people vote.

    I hope this information is actually somewhere and I’m just too retarded to find it :p

  14. Ravi—you might not be retarded, but you might’ve missed the newsprint election pull-out smooched in between the pages of last week’s Salient. There are spare copies up in the office if you wanna come ‘ave a gander.

    Also, next week’s issue contains an eye-opening interview with the two candidates left for president, Max Hardy and Alan Young. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but my head’s still spinning from it.
