From the beginning we have been misrepresented and misquoted. We
have been portrayed as insincere not only by the Associated
Students of CSU, but also by the campus media, including the
Collegian. This is a fallacy. We are willing, dedicated, and
honest. Our opponents fear that the majority of students might
speak out for once and elect those that truly represent them. Let
us tell you a little about what we have done, and what we would
like to do.
We have spoken with local restaurants and bars and we have
secured incentives for RamRide volunteers. This is the first step
in expanding this great program to include weekdays and holidays.
We have spoken with lawyers about the feasibility of hard liquor at
the Ramskeller and beer at Moby arena. This will not only increase
student participation in events, but also provide another source of
revenue during these times of budget crises. We are speaking with
construction companies and the city about parking solutions. We are
working to create an Office of Diversity to oversee advocacy
offices and ensure and increase the promotion and support of
diversity on a campus that lacks it.
More importantly, we know what it is like to work for a living.
All of our campaign materials have been created and funded by us.
Anyone who needs proof of that can go see our sign and our ‘ghetto’
t-shirts. We cannot afford to buy your vote with flowers and leis
as other tickets attempt to. We appeal to the student body as the
rational choice for student government. We appeal to the common
student because that’s who we are, and that’s whom we care about.
We work for everything we have and take nothing for granted. This
is how we will operate once in office. We will work hard, we will
be held accountable for our actions, and we will tell you the
truth. We can’t create change without your help, so get out and
vote this week. This election could be the turning point for our
university. Don’t allow it to fall behind. Make the smart choice
CSU, vote for your interests. Dave & Mike 2004.
