Hey everyone. My name is Bridget Benedict, and I am running for your 2009-2010 Off Campus Representative. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am currently a second year Global Studies and Psychology Major at let's face it, the greatest University! I have spent the last year as a Resident Assistant at Santa Catalina Residence Hall, thus I have had the opportunity to meet and interact with many of my wonderful peers. I am also a dedicated member of Invisible Children at UCSB along with the Human Rights Coalition.
Here's why I want to represent you as your off-campus rep: I believe that as a representative of Associated Student's Legislative Council it will be my duty to fight for the students. The best way to represent you is by listening to your needs. Whether it be:
I am fully committed to bringing your issues to the forefront of the school's agenda. It will be my responsibility to represent you, not just in our school but in the greater community as well.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and talk to me about my plan of making our university an even better place. And when you are voting just think to yourself "A vote for B is a vote for me!" Vote Bridget Benedict for Off-Campus Rep. with Student Voice!
Hey UCSB, I'm Tim Benson, a first-year communications major living in Manzanita Village. I love going to this school because I think it is truly a unique community, unlike any other university in the country. I believe that UCSB represents social and academic prominence. I believe in the immense potential of the student body at this university, and I believe that this diverse, talented, and capable group of people we have here on campus are headed for great things. Unfortunately, we as a university face massive problems in the coming year. We are amidst a detrimental budget crisis, one that has caused the administration to take away a lot of the great programs that UCSB has traditionally offered. In dire economic times, our school needs a group of leaders that will fight for the students and their rights. That is exactly why I am running for an Off-Campus Representative position, representing the Open People's Party. The OPP has always stood for representing ALL students at UCSB, making sure that everyone's rights as a student are being preserved. As a representative, I plan on working with the university to restore programs that are currently on the chopping block. As a student, you deserve a student government that will speak for you, and your needs as a member of this incredible community, and that is exactly what I, along with the OPP, plan on delivering. This election, vote for a student government that fights for you, not the administration. Thank you.
My name is Armando Carmona, I'm running for Off Campus Rep and here is my plan
First of all,
We need to educate UCSB students on Associated Students (A.S.) and how it works. A.S. representatives oversee a lot of money (brought to you by YOUR student fees) that funds many of the resources we have on campus. This is all good and great for us as students UNTIL the people left in charge are not representing our needs.
Need to hold the administration on this campus accountable to our needs, because as of now it seems as though their goal is to cut funding from our resources and tax our fees, not to offer more classes, or create more safe spaces, but to take them away from us. When in reality their job is to serve the students and to make our experience the best possible
I want to,
Continue working with outreach and retention programs on this campus, and continue empowering the youth with the resources needed to pursue a higher education. We must utilize our resources to benefit not only ourselves but also future generations
We need representatives willing to start these conversations, and question AS. If we can't question our own actions and our impact on this campus how will we be able to learn and improve. Together we can create this.

My name is Adam Goldman and I am running for Off-campus Rep with OPP!
As a member of a Greek fraternity and an intern with the Wellness Program, I am actively involved at UCSB both off and on campus. Through my participation in these organizations, I have worked incredibly hard and learned to deal with a variety people. Moreover, I have come to appreciate the incredible opportunities and experiences UCSB offers and would love the chance to give back to a school that has given me so much.
As Off-Campus Rep, I will work diligently to make sure that our rights and privileges are not only maintained, but also enhanced. I would like to make the housing in Isla Vista more affordable as well as more accountable to the students who live there. In addition, as Off-campus Rep I will make myself available to the students in I.V. by working with all of you to make sure our voices are heard!
As I am sure many of you already know, Santa Barbara County is trying to pass the Social Host Ordinance that would severely limit the social scene in Isla Vista. This is simply unacceptable. If you elect me as Off-campus Rep, I will do everything in my power to make sure that this bill is not passed, and our liberties as students and rights as citizens of I.V. are preserved!
Thank you for your time and vote for me!

Friends and neighbors,
Students of UCSB,
My name is Ryan Hirschler. I am a second-year Environmental Studies major living here in Isla Vista, and I need your help.
Throughout my past two years at UCSB I witnessed the awesome power of student activism. I heard the voices of young people across America. At a time when so many cynics believed that young people do not vote, UCSB turned out numbers which shattered the national averages. I was fortunate enough to be on the frontlines with Associated Students and Campus Democrats, helping to ensuring that every student voice was heard, and that every vote was counted. Sadly, there are some who are trying to silence us. The current attack on UCSB students seeks to erase you from the 2008 election, regardless of whether you correctly registered to vote and regardless of who you voted for. If Steve Pappas has his way, myself and 9,000 of my friends will have their voices extinguished.
This is why I am running to be your off-campus representative. Associated Students now faces the firing squad, because their efforts to register voters were EFFECTIVE! There are those who will back down next year; who will not fight to keep the student voice heard because they are scared. Elect me, and I will ensure Associated Students NEVER falters in its duty to our student community. For all of us who fight for something we believe in, please join me in protecting our most basic democratic right.
My name is Alaa Kamel and I am running for Off-Campus Representative for Student Voice. I am a Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies major with a minor in Global Peace & Security. Representation of unheard voices is my main concern! Our diverse community identifies with many controversial issues but I must emphasize that my responsibility is to make sure ALL voices are heard. I was the president of Model United Nations for 2 years, which means I have what it takes to put myself out in the community and find a way to accomplish my goals. I am dedicated to making a higher education accessible and affordable for our generation as well as the future. I also have very extensive experience in being a leader that holds strong conviction in my active voice. If I am elected, I am going to invest my time to serve you, and make the UCSB experience most enjoyable. I commit myself to the interests and concerns of the student body.

Some ideas I have for next year:

Hello fellow students. My name is Nicholas Musni and I want to be YOUR off-campus representative. I see this position as an excellent opportunity to enable positive and progressive change for ALL students and our surrounding community. I am a third year English major involved in S.C.O.R.E, Pilipino Culture Night as stage crew coordinator, Kapatirang Pilipino and Culture of Youth Progressing Humanity in Rhythm and Expression (CYPHER). With all the budget cuts and funding shortages going on I want to make sure that administration does not compromise YOUR needs. I want to make sure that decisions are made for YOUR best interests. And that ALL groups of interest and identity (race, sexuality, gender, economic standing, etc.) are equally represented by our student government.
Some of my many issues of concern are:
By addressing these and other like issues we can create a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students.
