Why are you running for this position? I have had a lot of experience with being the president of my high school’s DECA Chapter (An Association of Marketing Students), and for the past year I have been treasurer of the Class of 2010. I am confident in saying that working with money is my forte. I am very organized and extremely involved in the Rider/Westminster community.
What issue(s) is/are most important to you in this election? Why? As treasurer, I believe my main focus is to make sure our school’s money is being spent in the proper way to benefit the student body.

I think purposely combining events and working together with the Lawrenceville SGA Executive Board is imperative to unifying our University.
