These future politicos worked day and night to crank out their latest message to the students. Some of these campaigns were put together better than campaigns for a real public office that had the financial backbone to help it out. Led by SA Director of Public Relations Angie Milner, a concerned group of 30 students organized to form Uniting Students. The Uniting Students' campaign had everything that you can think of and more. Wearing their American flag look alike t-shirts, these students hit the pavement armed with handbills, stickers, positions papers, etc. to get their message out to the UH students. "This was the second year in a row that I managed a campaigned for SA. Last year, I managed the victorious SAIL campaign, so Angie and I decided to stick with what works," said Uniting Students Campaign Manager Jeff Fuller, a senior RTV and journalism major. In addition, another major party, Initiative formed under SA Speaker of the Senate Coy Wheeler's leadership. They passed out handbills and position papers and were ready to hit the students with information on the Initiative platform. This group was a bit smaller, but had the manpower to make it tough for Uniting Students to win. The predominantly residential housing party, Alliance, was formed under Bleacher Creature leader Dom Lewinsohn. He used good old-fashioned pressing of the flesh to get his message to the students. In mid-March, the SA elections took place and Uniting Students won all but eight of the 34 Senate positions. However, a run-off was needed to decide who would become the next student body president and vice president. Making it into the run-off were SA Presidential candidates Angie Milner (Uniting Students) and Dom Lewinsohn (Alliance) while the Vice Presidential race pitted Henry Bell (Initiative) against Dirk Moore (Uniting Students). After another two day series of pavement pounding, the elections were over and everyone waited for the results to be announced. In one of the closest run-off elections in UH's SA history, Milner was declared the individual to take the president's helm by a margin of 36 votes. In the Vice Presidential run-off, Bell won by a close margin, defeating Moore by two votes. "We had more of a voter turnout in the run-off, but we were still able to make sure that everything was done by the rules and few rules were violated," said Election Commissioner Habib Salley, a junior communications major. -JeffFuller SA Elections # 43
