My name is Charlie Arreola and I am ready to be your next A.S. President.
Serving as President of the Residence Halls Association (RHA), I developed an understanding of the university structure and its functions. I will use my established relationships with the administration to address your issues. Whether you think it is a small or large issue, it is MY issue nonetheless.
I will do everything in my power to provide UCSB better opportunities for the present and future. Whether ensuring our student fees are NOT taxed, providing a safer campus and Isla Vista Community, ensuring our campus is the frontrunner in sustainability efforts, and making Associated Students accountable to you, the students, I will do that.
As an established leader on this campus, I recognize that it is an imperative time to elect a leader that will represent the needs of students. Associated Students is "a place for everyone" and through open communication, transparency, accessibility and action, we can enhance the quality of life for all UCSB students.
I am passionate about our UCSB community and want all students to be well served. Our university needs a dedicated, fiscally responsible president who is willing to stand up and defend student welfare. When voting, please consider who will be the strongest, most efficient leader for all our students.
My name is Charlie Arreola and I ensure that opportunity begins with OPP. OPPortunities for strong representation, OPPortunities for a responsible student government, and OPPortunities for a better UCSB.
My name is Daniel Plotkin and here is my plan:
To act with INTEGRITY: We pick the best people for the job and not best for the election.
To COMMUNICATE: We receive input from many areas of the campus before formulating decisions.
To EXECUTE: We solve the issues facing this campus instead of simply talking about them.
I plan to challenge all the assumptions we have about student government and the election process. Why spend thousands of dollars on t-shirts and food? Why define ourselves by colors and platforms? I believe that hard working individuals operating in a non-hierarchical structure provides the best opportunity to respond rapidly and effectively to whatever problems the campus will face next year.
We do not stand for A-G issues. Our mission is altruistic.
The goal is not simply to win. It is to view elections as an opportunity to educate UCSB students on issues facing the campus, and to begin a dialogue between students and their government. In this sense there is no platform or hidden agenda. We are no party. We are simply students with a plan.
My experiences make me ready to lead:
