Written by

Before online voting

The Elections Board has released the full set of candidates for this year’s CCSC elections, and there are lots them! Nearly every election is contested. Five parties and an independent rep, are vying to represent 2013, while three full parties are each gunning for 2014 class council and the E-board. The race for the 2012 class council is much less competitive, but one representative position is contested. The field for USenate is very crowded, but it appears that no one’s running for Academic Affairs Rep or Pre-Professional Rep. Check out the full list of candidates and the elections calendar after the jump.

  7. ban frats on campus!  

    ccsc, as the voice of reason in a strange strange world I hope you are listening!

    • Wow...  

      thank you for being a broken fuckin record. if you want frats and sororities off campus go create some new student group and do some meaningless protesting like all the other orgs on campus that think they're making some profound impact.

      seriously... greek life has been on university campuses nation-wide for so damn long. they're part of the college experience and will definitely stay ingrained that way in the future. just stfu and live with it.

      • ban frats on campus!  

        you're welcome! I love record players. Have you ever listened to box of rain on LP? so much better.

        • Wow again  

          Actually I haven't... perhaps I'll look into it. I like electro though so I suppose some songs do sound like they're on a broken record player at times.

          Anyways, for what it's worth, I'm not part of Greek life. But I'm just saying maybe you should go do something about it instead of complaining on Bwog... over and over again.

    CuCharge has my vote!

  11. not so anonymous

    technically it's not against any rules. however it's really REALLY a conflict of interest, as the councils fund SGB. it's irresponsible to run for both positions.

      Didn't Beezly, ABC president, run for CCSC and say he would step down if elected last year? This is obviously what Barry will probably do--obviously he can't negotiate with himself at [email protected] I think CU Charge's VP of Policy is running for ABC Chair, too.
