Transcript A TASTE OP POWER Top Left: Students' Association vice president elect Dom Lewilsolm and Ashley Gillispie, founder of the Black Exchange, show that there can be friendship in politics, photo by Tricia Garcia' Bottom Left: Senior Hunter Jackson lobbies his support in changes that need to be made about campus issues. photo by Tricia Garcia Right: The Peoples' Party went all out in their campaigning effort this year. photo by Tricia Garcia POLL POWER Every year the accusations fly - friends undercut each other, fliers blow all over campus and yet the average student walks around not really knowing why fraternity types are bombarding them with propaganda. The semi-quiet frenzy is a result of theStudents' Association elections when students from every college in the university run for senator positions and a few well known students battle for the SA president and vice president positions. In a reflection of society at large, SA elections usually boil down to a two-party competition, with a third "rebel" party taking a few of the votes away from the majors. This year, however, there were four parties including the Peoples' Party, the Party Party, C.L.A.S.S. and LEAD. In response to economic problems facing the university as a whole, and because of previous criticism of SA's misuse of student service fees, vice presdiential candidate John Olszewski, from the Party Party, said his party would donate half of their salaries to a fund that would help improve campus grounds and buildings. Presidential candidates Hunter Jackson of LEAD and Giovanni Garibay of CLASS mentioned a bill that Garibay sponsored, and which was passed earlier in the semester, which would eliminate administrative positions saving SA $13,000 as their answer to economic problems. Both said this bill was indicatice of how they would better use SA money. Henry Bell, the presidential candidate from the Peoples' Party, said he his main focus would be on student services. He said his administration would focus on making it easier for stduents to take care of business in the bursar's office and in financial aid. As the campaign carried on through the always- exciting spring semester weeks, insider rumors flew, and each party leader was sure they would be the one to win - except maybe The Party Party who stated they were around to at least show people that there could be an alternative to what they receive year after year. But eventually it bcame obvious that the election boiled down to a battle between the Peoples' Party and CLASS. Both Bell and Garibay had strong followings and both had strong histories in previous SA positions. This is the typical situation though. While the parties change names every year, they are usually direct decendants of groups from the previous years. These people know the election system well enough to pull off effective campaigning stradegies which gather enough students to get them elected. In fact, usually the two parties have such similar tactics that they pull in almost the same amount of people causing there to run-offs almost every year. And this year the tradition continued - the Peoples' Party swept the senator positions and vice presdiential position, but a run-off between Garibay and Bell was necessary. -Revita Thomas Houstonian 1995 64 The University 65
