Hometown: Metuchen, N.J.
Minor: Sustainability Studies
Clubs/Activities: SGA Bronc Aide, Brother of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Member of the Community Standards Board, Rider Club Lacrosse Team, BHP Honors Program
Why are you running for this position? I am running for this position to make a lasting impact in SGA and on Rider’s campus.
What changes would you like to see made next year? I would like to see the minutes of all student Senate meetings become more accessible to any student who wishes to view them. It is important to me that the student body oversees the work and progress of its elected officials.
How would you go about making those changes? I would go about making those changes by implementing a better system for posting and sharing the minutes. Students should be able to see what the SGA is doing to make their campus a better place.
Why should people vote for you? People should vote for me because I am a unique candidate for the secretary position. I have experience in several different areas of campus life and am concerned with both the short- and long-term improvement of our student experience.
Hometown: Allentown, Pa.
Major: Marketing/Global Supply Chain Management
Clubs/Activities: SGA Spirits & Traditions Chair, Secretary for Delta Sigma Pi, Relay for Life committee
Why are you running for this position? I am running for SGA Secretary because I feel that I can take the position and bring it to new heights. Some of my goals of being SGA Secretary are to have a quorum at every meeting as well as enforcing the attendance policy. I also look forward to taking on additional projects and collaborating constructive and effective ideas during all meetings. My past experience in SGA was coming in as a freshman and serving on the Clubs and Organizations Committee, having a cabinet position as a Bronc Aide and working on Relay for Life. With each commitment I learned to work as a team, step out of my comfort zone and understand how SGA operates. As a sophomore I stepped up as SGA Spirits and Traditions Chair and I gained even more leadership qualities, for example organizing the Rock hand out, sponsoring a basketball event and bringing in a new idea to have SGA bonding dinners. I feel that with my involvement and leadership skills I would make a great SGA Secretary.
