    @Anonymous Too many asians.

    @Anonymous Matt comes off as a jerk and abrasive…politics is also about personality kid

    1. whatever says:

      @whatever Well at least he accomplished stuff in stuco. There’s actual concrete evidence of all the hard work he’s put in. It’s just a shame that all we have now are empty and vague promises. I hope Matt runs again in the future.

        @Anonymous @whatever: …stay mad. there are many hard working people in council just look at the P/F. and you don’t have to be council to make a difference bro.

    @Anonymous why does chloe blanchard have so many friends? who is she? she seems like a normal girl, not a celebrity… did she just whore out friend requests to 5k people? still impressive though

    1. maybe? says:

      @maybe? Was Chloe the girl who promised that she would get people Google Docs for Lionmail because she lived close to Google and could go talk to them? I remember someone in the candidate videos for last year’s elections promising that.

  • Anon says:

    @Anon I didn’t vote for Matthew Sheridan because he came off as an asshole. Even though he may not be one in real life, that’s how he portrayed himself in my eyes (and apparently the eyes of others) on the internet…

    1. Zach says:

      @Zach I know Matt Sheridan, he’s not an asshole…he’s a genuinely motivated kid who wants to effect positive change here

      1. Anon says:

        @Anon that’s great. more power to him. but next time he should work on his people skills on social media sites because this time around they were no bueno.

        1. Anonymous says:

          @Anonymous Maybe if someone hadn’t stated blatantly wrong/dishonest facts about themselves he wouldn’t have needed to come off as such an asshole. Go get informed.

    @Leah Metcalf Congrats, everyone!

  • SEAS '14 says:

    @SEAS '14 I am excited that Sidd Bhatt will lead ESC!! He’s the man!!

  • Anon says:

    @Anon Who is Sam Skhosaim?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous yes Pset150! this new year will be great!!

  • CC says:

    @CC Really sad to see that Matt Sheridan didn’t get VP Comm. The kid has dedication and passion, though, and I’m sure will find an amazing way to have an impact on this campus.

    1. Matthew Sheridan says:

      @Matthew Sheridan Damn Straight!!!!

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous I’m sure Matt would have been a very good VP. He has a refreshing honesty and intelligence.

    2. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous I also agree that Matt is very dedicated and passionate, and that’s something we definitely need in student government. However, while his straightshooting style can be direct and powerful, sometimes it comes off as negative and makes him difficult to work with. As someone who admires his drive and commitment to student government, I think that if he just works on this, he could eventually become ESC president.

      1. Tis a pity says:

        @Tis a pity Tis a pity that Matt Sheridan didn’t get elected. He has such drive and passion. It will be great to see how far he goes. A truly upstanding member of our community!

        1. disappointed says:

          @disappointed I bet Matt doesn’t take the elevator to the third floor.
