Transcript [We] will do everything in our power to make sure that we make progress on all the issues that were on our platform. 9 9 Natalie Merritt, Houston Party Liberty Party Student Regent candidate Nathan Wittman (left), Vice- President CANDIDATE MONICA QUINTERO and President candidate Ben Fricke field questions during the debate in the Cougar Den. Wittman lost to the Houston Party's Tom Cassidy in the Student Regent election. Photo by: Lisa Chmiola Continued from page 36 "To be very honest with you, I haven't really read that much of that part of The Daily Cougar. I've been really busy running a campaign',' Fricke said. Merritt said Vaksman is a threat to UH and "a huge embarrassment to this university.' On Wednesday, March 5 and Thursday, March 6, 1,135 students went to the polls to pick the leaders of SA. Freshman finance major Rosco Graves said he voted because he wanted a voice in campus happenings and "its hard to complain about something if you're not active'.' An exit poll conducted by The Daily Cougar showed Fricke in the presidential lead with 60 percent of the vote over Merritts 40 percent and Quintero topping Erickson, 70 to 30 percent, for vice president. However, the Houston Party dominated the elections. The official results, announced Friday, March 7, crowned Merritt, Erickson and Student Regent candidate Tom Cassidy victors. The Houston Party also won all four at-large Senate seats and 20 of 28 college seats. Although the Liberty Party captured eight Senate seats, it apparently wasn't enough for Fricke, who said, "I just hope that (the winners) do more than sit behind a desk and pump their heads full of air!' Merritt responded by saying, "(We) will do everything in our power to make sure that we make progress on all the issues that were on our platform" However, perhaps the real winners were the students who made the effort to vote and had a voice in selecting who will handle SAs $93,000 budget — SA wouldn't exist if it wasn't for students, after all. 38 Student Life
