Students meet senate candidates

Four of the six candidates running for the 2010-11 student senate positions took part in the WLUSU open forum yesterday.

Mike Alfieri, Alishia Mallory, Ted Brown and Chris Walker took the floor to present their ideas and answer students’ questions.

Walker displayed an understanding of what a role on senate entails, discussing the need for better communication with the students’ union as well as an interest in sitting on both the technology information and academic planning committees.

Mallory also showed interest in committee involvement, stating that she would like to pursue the academic planning and student appeals committees. Alfieri promised in his platform to make sure that students’ needs are heard, although was not specific on how to carry this out. He also spoke of his interest in the finance committee.

Finally, Brown stated that his focus would be on preventing more classes from being cut, which he felt was detrimental to students.
