Candidate statements regarding previous or current involvement with the activities &
organizations; roles or positions held; skills utilized or learned as a result of involvement.
The best example I can give is working for my dad's company. He has a flooring business and I did a lot
of logistics. I was the man in charge of organizing everything (telling workers where to go, directing the
material to which house/building, etc.) - It look a lot of patience and organizational skills. I never ran
for Student Senate at my school but I did attend Senate meetings and MMSD-Superintedent meetings
every Thursday. Mainly to listen. I was in the Democratic club at West High, where we just talked about
contemporary political news. I also briefly canvassed for the Obama campaign in 2012. It was a unique
experience where I got to discuss with people about Obama's policies. Despite being Madison, I got to
talk with a few republicans that were going to vote for Romney.
Candidate response to the question “What issues do you believe are of greatest concern to
Madison College Students?”
The most common concerns I've heard from students are financial aid (legislation that benefits students
need for financial aid is necessary), lack of parking space (its enforcement and inefficiency); lack of
knowledge of student resources, lack of school-spirit events (which ultimate affects student's morale
and happiness within the Madison College school).
Candidate response to the question, “What qualities & skills do you possess that make you a good
candidate for the Student Senate?”
I have a great passion for government, politics and democratic action. I will take this position seriously
in order to greatly improve the school. I'm a very good listener and proposer of new ideas. I like to
see the big picture in things and administrate the small things. I've become good at organization and
communication because of my work with my dad's business and having a lot of people interaction. I'm
a very friendly person interested in the concerns of students. I would not be applying if I didn't know I
could improve the school in any way. That's my driving passion that I think will quality as my main
quality and skill.
Candidate response to the question, “What would you like to accomplish with the Madison
College Student Senate?”
I would like to complete the initiatives in the agenda and tackle down the main issues that face the
school, especially those that concern students the most (e.g., appropriation and allocation of resources
and budget). As cheesy as it may sound, my ultimate purpose is to improve the whole school with the
influence given to me as a Senator. Presenting bills, tackling initiatives,managing an efficient budget and
facing the main issues. I will be aresponsive representative of students and a liaison to action. I will not
work for the school administration, but rather, work with the administrationon behalf of the students.
Heading student's needs first.
Candidate response regarding any special consideration, questions or comments.
Look, I don't claim to be an expert on legislation or claim to have legislative experience, but because of
my avid passion for passion for government, politics and democratic initiative: I will claim that I will
take the Senate position seriously will do my best to fulfill its duties. No matter if I don't get into the
Senate, I will attend its meetings and speak. However, being a Senator will give me an ultimate source of
influence: the vote and close-tightness to student government action.
