Hometown: Upper Marlboro, Md.
Major: Journalism (Public Relations)
Clubs/Organizations: SGA, Protestant Campus Ministry, Intervarsity, RHA, President’s Taskforce on Diversity and Tolerance, and Emerging Leaders
Why are you running for this position? SGA president has the incredible opportunity to make a major impact on the campus by working with all of the various organizations on campus. I want to be SGA president because I know I have the vision and the experience to lead SGA as an organization well and also be a great voice for the students at Rider.
What issue(s) is/are most important to you in this election? Why? The most important issues in this election are the issues of the allocation of the Student Activities Fee, student programming, sustainability initiatives and improvements to the Safe Rides program.
How do you plan on working with the Finance Board to fairly distribute money to clubs and organizations for 2009-2010? I will ask that the Finance Board chair tell the liaisons to periodically check up on clubs and organizations to see how the money is being spent. The Finance Board liaisons should be a resource that organizations can use to find ways to better use their money. Also, we need to require that clubs and organizations who attend conferences to report back to the Finance Board or the SGA to give us an action plan on what they plan on doing to improve Rider as a result of the conference. Organizations who fail to do so upon returning from their conference will not be granted funds for the following year.
