Rumor Mill: Meet your potential CCSC presidential candidates
Written by Bwog Staff
Election season is fast approaching! And while there has only been one candidate announcement as of yet (not counting Mr. Carey, of course) Bwog has been hearing through the grapevine that Krebs will be facing current VP Policy Alidad Damooei in what is sure to be an epic battle of the light blue-est. In the interest of informing you, gentle reader, Bwog is giving a quick rundown of likely candidates.
Candidates (still) cannot discuss policy, but major issues on the table this spring will be communication with the student body, advocating student positions, financial aid reform and the presence of light blue foodstuffs.
(Note: elections will be held later this year so as not to coincide with midterms. For those who wish to run, interest meetings will be taking place in March at some point.)
Alidad Damooei: CC ’09, Economics
Although still not officially a candidate, Damooei has been on track for a high leadership position since last year when he served as Academic Affairs Representative. As a sophomore, he was a major part of the Pass/D/Fail policy change as well as making some seminars count towards the Major Cultures requirement. This year, he’s been working on environmental policy, advising reform and a recently passed an initiative with the support of College Dems to make birth control more affordable. This nighttime I-banker has been rumored to be a backroom dealer, cuddling up with administration in order to push his policy through.
George Krebs: CC ’09, Political Science
This jolly Junior Class Council President is one of the most visible people on campus, always attending cultural activities and sporting events to cheer on Light Blue and focusing on building a sense cohesion in his class. This past year, his major issue has been working on getting Flex Off Campus (which will be coming your way right after Spring Break). His council, however, has had a tenuous relationship with the E-Board (of which Alidad is a member), which eventually landed them on probation. With his ticket solidifying, he seems to be trying to network early before anyone else announces their candidacy.
