Transcript Do you want to be a liar, or do you want to serve with integrity? That's the question you have to ask yourself. 9 9 —Ben Fricke, Liberty Party Otudents' Association Chief Election Commissioner Nathan Masi counts ballots in election headquarTERS. Natalie Merritt, Jon Erickson and their houston party swept the March 5 and 6 elections. Photo by: Liz Carter Lisa n. Chmiola It may not have been sex, lies and videotape, but the 1997 Students' Association elections were filled with mudslinging, bitterness and televised debate. Much like the 1996 elections, both parties waited until the Feb. 21 filing deadline to complete their ballots. But unlike last year, the two parties were headed by members of the 33rd SA Administration. The Houston Party ran Student Regent Natalie Merritt for president and Speaker of the Senate Jon Erickson for vice president. "In order to do an effective job in this organization ... you have to grow into the positions;' Erickson said. The Houston Partys platform concentrated on school spirit, athletics, financial aid, academic excellence and student service needs. The Liberty Party (or Campaign Liberty) set campaign goals of improving campus housing and student recruitment through offering more incoming freshman scholarships. Education Sen. Ben Fricke (president) and At-Large Sen. Monica guintero (vice president) emphasized Cougar pride and integrity. "Do you want to be a liar, or do you want to serve with integrity? Thats the question you have to ask yourself;' Fricke said. Campaign week kicked off Monday, March 3 with presidential and vice presidential debates in the Cougar Den of the University Center. In about the same amount of time one may have spent in line for lunch upstairs in the American Cafe (15 minutes), the veep candidates exchanged views on the campaign issues. Erickson said he could see the need for minor student fee increases, pointing out a recent UC fee increase for renovations costing "about the price of a Happy Meal" per student. Quintero agreed, saying, "I think there are certain areas on campus that could be aided by the increase of student fees;' The presidential debate was slightly hotter, with the candidates rebutting back and forth on issues and attacks. Fricke said he wanted to concentrate on rewarding campus residents, while Merritt said she wanted to improve services for commuters, which make up over 90 percent of UH students. the debates was televised on the Student Video Network Tuesday, March 4 at 10 p.m. A combined presidential and vicepresidential debate, the exchange was the usual passing of the politica pigskin until Fricke apparently fumbled on a question about the controversty sUrrounding doctoral student Fabian Vaksman and the apparently racist memos he had been sending to administrators. continued on page 38 Student Life
