*Editor's Note: Student body elections at Idaho State University are in full swing and recognizing that a good chunk of my readers are students at ISU, here is the platform of the two guys I am endorsing. Not only do they have the best platform and are the most qualified candidates, they are two pretty good guys!
Why Should You Vote For Matt Hobson and Will Sharp?
1) Continued support for the lawsuit to keep out tuition down.
How? Gain written support by Boise State University, University of Idaho, and other Idaho universities. Research past legislation, Idaho's constitution, and previous bouts with the State Board of Education. Not flinching is how they will solve the problem.
2) Better spending within ASISU leads to better involvement of clubs, organizations, and individual students.
How? Matt Hobson served as an ASISU finance committee member this past year and knows how the money gets into the club's hands. Finding out how and for what the money will be spent will not only save the student money, but insure that the money is spent right.
3) Getting athletic tickets back to the game.
How? Convincing the university that there is no reason for which students should have to get their tickets in advance.
4) Let's define "dead week."
How? Hobson and Sharp will send a petition to the dean of each college and have them define what they expect of their students during dead week and then inform the students.
5) Student loan consolidation and counseling
How? Bringing the information to you about what options you have for getting your loan paid off. Hobson/Sharp will provide kiosks in every college once a month with the resources to help the student.
6) They will come to you.
How? Matthew Hobson and Will Sharp will spend time each week visiting each college to sit and talk one-on-one with you about your experience with Idaho State University.
Get out and vote in the ASISU run-off election March 1, 2005.
