Candidate Statement from his Winter 2011 Senate race

Hello fellow students. I’m Ryan Meyerhoff – a 3rd year Political Science major. You deserve a responsible government that can be held accountable to vote how you want *your money* spent. Therefore, I hope to use my experience to bring an Independent voice to the ASUCD Senate.

My Platform:

*FREE PARKING:* I will work with the Transportation & Parking Administrative Advisory Committee and TAPS to get free parking on campus by 9PM instead of 10PM.

*NO PICTURES ON BALLOTS:* People should vote for qualifications, not appearances.

*NO NEW FEES*: I have spent 3 years fighting for lower fees on the Student Fee Advisory Committee to the Vice Chancellor. As a Senator, I will do my best to kill any new campus-initiated fees for our student body.

*RESPONSIBILITY*: The meat & potatoes of a Senator’s job lies in voting on bills and working on the ASUCD Budget. I promise to scrutinize the budget to ensure responsible spending, vote on bills in a level-headed manner, and work past partisan divides with the interest of the whole student body in mind.

*EXPERIENCE*: I am a veteran within your government, serving on the ASUCD Supreme Court, as Chair of the Elections Committee, and as a member of the Business and Finance Commission. I’ll use my experience to cut red tape and ensure that students like you have an efficient and effective student government.

~~~ I know how good government works – I recognize a good idea when I see one and will support the quality projects of fellow Senators, regardless of their slate. I have been serving you since freshman year, so I know how to accomplish my goals. I only ask that you allow me to continue serving the student body as your ASUCD Senator. ~~~ Vote for Experience & Leadership. Vote for Ryan Meyerhoff ~~~ Facebook me with your questions.
