Gator Having Some Trouble?
The almighty Gator Party is not doing such a great job of holding the line. In various spots throughout campus (namely Turlington Plaza) the machine seems somewhat weak. In a last hour gamble Gator members have tried to file complaints against PANTS use of I-Voted-Stickers with threats from the Elections Committee threatening disqualification of the entire PANTS Party slate. This coming from a board that barely has the symbolic (not even legal) power to enforce a $20 fine and has absolutely no power outside of UF, these folks are certainly taking a big risk in attempting to suppress PANTS. I myself would continue handing out stickers and campaigning, if PANTS wins, I would love to see that commission disqualify them...ah...it would bring back memories of the Gil Sanchez' lawsuit.
Meanwhile over at Levin, my good friend & original Access Party colleague Andrew Hoffman is running for Law College Council President. Andrew tirelessly worked on behalf of undergrads, serving as President of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences Council & later as one of five senators representing the college. In campaign politics he was an integral force of the original Access Party and served on the Executive Committee of the ill-fated Impact Party.
Despite being a first year law student, Andrew is poised to take on leadership positions and continue on with his career of public service. Though I could probably count the law students that visit TR with my two hands, I still think it's critical to mention Andrew b/c he's the best candidate, even if Tommy "The Turncoat" is supporting Andrew's rival. Good luck Andrew!
I also would like to thank Nina for a wonderful interview! We have a good chunk of material that didn't make it, so perhaps (with NINA's approval) we can re-release the interview in the coming months with about 15-25% more stuff! Def. worth the read!
