Go Orange & Blue!
Not much to say this early in the morning, except to wish you the best. You guys are really taking it to the next level. I still hope Sam Miorelli will announce. Perhaps McShera would be better for SBT, but I insist (even based off of my physical distance from SG) he is Executive material. I urge both Miorelli & McShera to reconsider my request. The time to announce is now.
You will not have the momentum you have now. Gator is hurting. They're going to win this run, it's Fall. But you two can make a big difference campaigning as Executive candidates in a Fall election. You can call into question all of the tools in the System arsenal...you can make public spectacles of their Elections Commission, denying the "have-nots, the 84% of campus" not only the right for their candidates to campaign for their colleagues, but denying them the right to online voting, proper representation on "Machen's vision to dry out campus," the uniformity in chambers, the indifference to UF students getting electrocuted by agents of the UF administration apparatus, you can pounce these people.
It's never been done before. Please think about it. I don't just know two names, I know a good bit about over a dozen top GDI's at UF. The two of you are the ones that I really believe have Exec. potential. Please don't mistake my lack of tact insofar as implying that you, Mark, were a turncoat -- you're far from it.
It just irks me to see real potential settle in for anything less than your destiny. Announce. If you change your mind in December, politely drop out, b/c by then O&B will be much more organized, much more known, and on it's way. I have almost no doubt neither of you would drop out. Either one of you is SBP material, but divided you'll destroy O&B.
For now, I'm glad to see you slating as you are. Incredible!
