Bennett A Duval - Bettering Our School System (B.O.S.S.)

Fellow Gauchos,

My name is Bennett Duval and I am willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that your student fees are being spent properly.

As a founder of a small start up company and member of both the AS Investment Advisory Committee and AS Finance Board, I understand the importance of fiscal responsibility. In light of California's recent budget crisis, I plan on fighting for you the students in every way possible to insure that our tuition does not continue to rise!

It is my goal to also continue the efforts of both EAB and the Green Campus Program to continue to make our campus greener. Santa Barbara is where the environmental movement began. It is imperative that we continue to be recognized as the model of what a Green Campus should look like now and into the future.

As a leader in our community, I am prepared to work for you the students. I bring to the table a fresh approach to the Presidency. I believe that I can truly represent what a gaucho is and wants its President to be. I represent hope and change.

The overall goal of every student leader is to Better Our School System! Get B.O.S.S.Y everyone and vote for me!.

I represent change. I represent what our school needs. Finally, I represent transparency for Associated Students!

Best, Bennett Duval Note: This message brought by the campaign to better our school system.

Hey Ya'll I'm Edward Muna, a third year Political Science major, and I want to be your External Vice President of Statewide Affairs (EVPSA) with DP Party.

Student Advocate General


candidate
Harrison Weber

Fellow Students:

The Student Advocate General has the primary responsibility of overseeing the Office of the Student Advocate (OSA), an unwavering resource for all students who are in some way involved in the University's judicial process. In other words, the Advocate General stands at the helm of a resource that is a basic right for every student of this University. Having served the OSA under two Advocate Generals, I know from personal observation this job requires experience in dealing with administrators and judicial officers, the energy to manage a growing office of students, and empathy for every student and their specific circumstances. But above all, the Advocate General must first and foremost be an advocate for the students.

Fellow students, I am your advocate. Too many times I have seen students come into our office feeling scared and without any support or knowledge of this University's puzzling judicial system. A system that is completely new for thousands of students each year. A relative few on this campus have knowledge of the OSA and the services we provide. As Advocate General, my top priority will be to change this unfortunate fact. Having the OSA's services known to all students is critical not only for the longevity of the OSA, but more importantly the overall well-being of the students. I have the most experience, am willing to put forth the most energy, and have empathy for every student on this campus. I am qualified for this position because I am your

candidate
Miles Freeman - Bettering Our School System (B.O.S.S.)

Hey there fellow Gauchos! My name is Miles Freeman and I'm running to be one of YOUR Representatives-at-Large on YOUR Legislative Council.

In the past I've served on the Residence Hall Association's Coordinating Board as a Representative-at-Large and this year I'm the RA for the bomb 1st and 2nd floors of San Miguel East Tower. As your Representative-at-Large next year, I want to make accountability a part of A.S. Currently as A.S. Attorney General I've made it my mission to reign in the excessive abuses of power by this years Legislative Council.

However, being Attorney General has also shown me that change needs to come from WITHIN Legislative Council and this belief has empowered me to run for this office. Next year, as a Representative-at-Large I want to amend the A.S. Constitution not only to force great accountability but also to foster transparency in our student government that's been lacking in past years.

Alongside this, as YOUR Rep-at-Large I intend to push for bills to reduce redundancy and excessive bureaucracy with our student government. Associated Students needs to work FOR THE STUDENTS and act PROACTIVELY instead of reactively when confronting the UC administration. The only way our government can do that is by increasing efficiency and insisting upon accountability to the student body that ELECTED THEM.

Therefore, if you care about honesty, accountability, integrity, and efficiency from your student government I STRONGLY encourage you to vote for me. Together, WE

    My primary role as an off-campus representative is something that I am extremely familiar with as it also happens to be one of the most important foundations in environmental studies: taking a pro-active stance. No, Iím not referring to the fantastic face wash, but rather to addressing problems and issues in their earliest possible stages in order to ensure that they do not negatively impact the general student body. Solving problems before they become daunting issues requires establishing clear lines of communication between the leg-council and the student body and developing constituent trust. Rest assured that I will accurately represent your ideas and views and will not skew them with my own political agenda.

    I am here to represent the Student Body in its entirety. I genuinely believe that no issue is too large or small to address.

    Vote BOSS, and vote Duncan Kenney for off-campus rep.

As a first year, I am already living off campus in IV and enjoying all the bliss that independency has brought. Aside from already living in the same place that you call home, I have also been able to understand the concerns that students face on a day-to-day basis as tenants in the Isla Vista community. My experience with UCSA has allowed me to network across all UC campuses and integrate what has succeeded elsewhere at our own UC.

    The amount of diversity on our campus makes it such a great community to be a part of. We need to make sure that our voices are not quieted down, especially in times like these. It is vital to ensure that our fellow Gauchos return to UCSB and by taking action against fee hikes as well as those program cut downs. Having a strong group of fellow Gauchos to have these rights preserved is key, and that is what B.O.S.S. (Bettering Our School System) is all about. As a representative I want to aim on restoring programs and controlling those fees, as well as making sure UCSB is a safe place to all diversity. I am a regular Gaucho just like you, who worries about finals and those dreaded papers and now those ridiculous tuition fee hikes. I am also very determined and dedicated to what I put myself into. If elected I will make sure that actions are done and most importantly that the whole student body knows what actions were made.

    Having been involved in the residence halls community for the past two years, I know that there's a lot of untapped potential among residents - I believe it's critical for AS to expand its outreach efforts into the halls so that students' can realize that potential. From the first week a student steps on campus, they should know about the possibilities waiting for them in our many student-run organizations.

    Not only do I want to put my knowledge of RHA and Residential Life to work for students, but I want to help students help themselves. It's essential that there is an ongoing dialogue between the on-campus community, AS, and RHA in order to promote a better knowledge of the quality-of-life, financial, and many other issues that we face daily.

    Finally, it's bad enough that students are paying ever-higher fees mandated by distant bureaucrats - I'll make sure that AS isn't being frivolous with students' hard-earned money. I want to make sure that AS isn't part of the problem by neglecting to follow through with its funding decisions.

    A vote for me is a vote for greater integrity, responsiveness, and openness in our student government. Vote Ian Moret

    Democratic Process Party (D.P. Party)

    We believe Associated Students should be Associated with the Students. It was on this belief that we founded the Democratic Process Party. Our candidates were elected through an open general primary, where everyone had the opportunity to participate or run. That's what makes our party unique.

    As individuals, the diversity of our experience and the issues we work on is our strength. As a party, we all stand by these CORE four principles:

    We will work to CREATE class availability and job opportunities on campus.

    We will continue to ORGANIZE around the UC financial crisis to prevent unfair budget cuts from our university.

    We will RETAIN the quality of this institution by promoting environmental sustainability and protecting funds for departments and student services including CLAS, Student Health, ESS and EOP.

    We will ENGAGE the administration to prioritize student concerns on issues like the MCP, hate incidents, and unwarranted fees.

    Although we do not limit ourselves to these principles, they represent our focus.

    We do not believe in closed-door meetings.

    We do not stand for hate.

    We believe in having fun, but not at the expense of student fees.

    Get your democracy on. Vote DP party!


    Open People's Party (O.P.P)

    The ideals of the Open People's Party exist in the honest and absolute representation of each and every student of UC Santa Barbara. This is our campus. This is our mutual goal. You are the Open People's Party.

    We continue to pay more for our education, yet see less. Why are student services being cut? Why is class availability decreasing? We are expected to graduate within four years but don't have the resources to satisfy our educational requirements. Your student government should protect and advocate for you in the face of these reckless budget cuts and increasing student fees by providing student scholarships, job opportunities, and academic support.

    If we are expected to pay these fees, we expect a quality education, which includes a modernized campus that UCSB is severely lacking. The Open People's Party will fight to improve student communication services, create mobile device applications, and finally establish University-wide wireless Internet.

    We will continue to support efforts to keep the power of education in student hands. By demanding a reassessment of the financial situation, we will fight to protect the voice of students in such influential decision-making processes.

    The Open People's Party believes in diligent work at home and in our local community. We stand strong in our commitment to protect students from abusive rental rates. Isla Vista has a unique and eclectic culture that Open People's Party hopes to preserve through the establishment of an Isla Vista Community Center and Sobering Center. Students are unjustly criminalized for minor infractions by a sometimes-overzealous police force. Open People's Party works to better relations with law enforcement, as they are meant to protect and serve, not aggravate and belittle.

    The Open People's Party represents all UCSB students. We draw student leaders from all facets of our community in order to encourage the diversity of opinion. We are a party that embraces the free exchange of different thoughts and ideas. We advocate for the holistic student perspective to enhance the quality of life for all UCSB students. Opportunity begins with OPP. OPPortunity for strong representation. OPPortunity for a responsible student government. OPPortunity for a better UCSB.

    Welcome to the party!


    2010 A.S. Reaffirmations

    (These are reaffirmations of existing constitutional lock-ins. Voting "YES" will not increase your A.S. fees.)

    *Click here for more information about Return To Aid (RTA)

    Educational Opportunity Program (E.O.P): Do you support continued funding of one dollar and twenty-five ($1.25) per AS/UCSB Membership per quarter (fall, winter, spring) and $0.83 for summer quarter for E.O.P?

    Pro Statement

    The EOP Emergency grants are crucial to students who need the most aid and support. Thus, it is imperative that they continue to be offered. As an EOP student and Student Mentor, I have learned the value of services such as these, by inviting my peers to use them as resources, as well as doing so myself. On countless occasions, even before becoming a Mentor, I told students about the grants. I know many of them who were saved from eviction or received a new pair of glasses that they desperately needed, but could not afford. Personally, the emergency grants helped me because they gave me the opportunity to apply to graduate school. Being a low-income and first generation undergraduate, it was hard to even imagine what the journey to being a graduate student would be like. The financial burden that graduate school testing and applications impose, thanks to the emergency grant, was no longer an impediment for me. I hope that with the continuation of these services, obstacles such as these will not keep future EOP Students from attaining their goals.
