Complete Platforms of Dylan Schaefer, Independent Candidate for ASUCD Senate:

#1) IMPROVE STUDENT-POLICE RELATIONS:

A perennial problem that has become more visible due to recent events on campus is the growing antagonistic relationship between the student community and the police. Unfortunately, ASUCD’s efforts to seriously improve these problems over the years have been sporadic at best. To rectify this I propose:

#2) LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS TO PICNIC DAY ISSUES:

In the past few years, Picnic Day has become an event associated with binge drinking and community disrespect. The university and community response so far has been primarily to increase the number of police and to limit alcohol sold on the day of the event. If we want Picnic Day to continue past the 100th anniversary of the event, we need to shift from thinking in a short-term perspective and move to a long-term perspective. That means:

#3) INVESTING IN ASUCD UNITS:

ASUCD is first and foremost a business, and our spending priorities need to reflect that reality. As an Association, we need to focus on making sure our units are run in the most efficient manner while providing the maximum benefit to the students. Specifically, I would like to:

#4) ASUCD BUREAUCRATIC REFORM:

Currently, the ASUCD Senate spends hours and hours debating and discussing legislation, often into the early hours of the morning, and yet passes most legislation unanimously. While it is great that the Senators are so thorough, having Senate meetings last that long is extremely inefficient and allows for relatively little public input- a key feature of ASUCD democracy. As a Senator, I will implement reforms such as a consent calendar, a device used by almost all legislative bodies, in order to expedite non-controversial business and to allow more time for important work. Additionally, I would like to delegate more power and responsibilities to Commissions to help the whole organization be run more effectively.
